A student who read the post on exam paper combinations, sent in an email asking about utilising the 15 minute reading and planning time during the exams.
He, and a few of his friends had been told that students are only allowed to read, and highlight the question paper.
“During the reading and planning time, only the question paper may be annotated….” The misunderstanding may have stemmed from the understanding of annotated. It means to highlight, make (explanatory)notes on, to comment on.
As long as a student is not writing in the answer booklet (during the 15 minute reading and planning time), any notes made in the question paper is fine. You may even start with noting down answers to any of the questions.
You will not be breaking any rules if you write answers/answer points/make copious notes in the margins, at the back, or anywhere else in the question paper.
Please leave a comment on how you utilise the 15 minute reading and planning time.
