## Structure of Papers

**ALWAYS READ THE RUBRIC**. However Mathematics papers
normally have the following structure given below:

Please note that in 2016-17 the number of questions in Year 1 and Year 2 honours exam papers will be **five**. This is a change from previous years.

(1) First year honours papers are 2-hour exams, with five questions; you may attempt as many questions as you wish, but only the best four are counted.

(2) Second year honours papers are 2-hour exams, with five questions; you may attempt as many questions as you wish, but only the best four are counted.

(3) All mathematics honours papers are 2-hour exams, with five questions: you may attempt as many questions as you wish, but only the best four solutions are counted.

N.B. The Ancillary module examination papers have different structures.
