4.2.4 Plan your time
When planning to use the time available, you should:
make sure that you are answering the right number of questions
divide your time according to the weighting of the questions
write down the finishing time for each question
try to allow for 10 minutes checking time at the end.
Stick to your plan. Evidence indicates that two half-answered questions obtain more marks than one completed question and one unanswered one. This is especially vital where you have to answer a certain number of questions from different sections of the exam paper. If your timing goes wrong, you could end up with less time than you would wish to finish the last question. If this happens, plan your answer as described below, and write out the main points in note form. This will earn you a few extra, valuable marks.
