Final Examination – Format Advice The final examination will be 2 hours in length (no reading time). The paper will be marked out of 60. This assessment item contributes to 60% of the total assessment for this Unit. Section A 3 x written response questions in the style of “Write short notes about …..”. Examples: Write short notes about atherosclerosis. Write short notes about hypersensitivity reactions. N.B. None of these questions will be presented as a case study. You are to answer ALL three questions. Value – 10 marks each (Total 30 marks for Section A). Section B 40 multiple choice questions. Value 0.75 mark each (Total 30 marks for Section B). Answer ALL questions – there are no deductions for incorrect responses. These will be answered on separate Answer Key Sheets which are marked by machine - Make sure you take a B or 2B pencil, sharpener and eraser to the examination. Do NOT select more than one answer or you will automatically be marked as incorrect for that question.

No further narrowing of possibilities will be provided . Terminology used in the examination paper will not be further defined or explained during the examination. Practice examination papers will not be provided....
