The emphasis given to each topic will vary according to the strengths and weaknesses of the students in the groups and the syllabuses for which they have been taught. It is therefore important that students give as much detail as possible on the questionnaire about their syllabus and any specific areas of difficulty. Working without calculators will also be practised as this skill forms part of the assessment criteria.
