Writing the Math 12 Provincial Exam: Some Guidelines

(will be updated as needed)

Students are asked to leave answers accurate to AT LEAST TWO decimal places. This exam rule is intended to keep things manageable for both students and markers. The answer must be correct to whatever number of digits (at least two) the student chooses to round. Similarly, marks MAY not be deducted for non-reduced fractions in the answer boxes, but we take marks off for incorrect reduction for sure.
Also, itís a good idea to write the exact solution before reaching for the calculator in case of calculator errors.
