Examination overview:
M1: A knowledge of C12, its preambles and associated formulae and of vectors in two dimensions.
The examination will consist of one 1 1/2 hour paper. It will contain about seven questions of varying length. The mark allocations per question will be stated on the paper. All questions should be attempted.
M2: A knowledge of the specifications for C12, C34 and M1, and their prerequisites and associated formulae, is assumed and may be tested.
