1. Enter your student number and name on the computer scorecard
provided by filling in the appropriate circles. Check that your
scorecard has the correct version number filled in (version 1). If
not, fill that in. One mark will be awarded for correctly recording
your student number on the scantron card. Double check that
you have done that properly!
2. This examination comprises 30 questions (16 pages including cover
page and 4 blank pages), but will be marked out of 31 (see point 1
above). All questions are of equal value.
3. Transfer all answers to the scantron computer scorecard provided.
4. Only the scantron card will be collected at the end of the
5. ONLY the SHARP EL510RB calculator may be used in the
Midterm. Translation dictionaries are also permitted. NO notes or
texts are allowed.
6. The Examination Security Monitor Program detects pairs of students
with unusually similar answer patterns on multiple-choice exams.
Data generated by this program can be used as admissible evidence,
either to initiate or corroborate an investigation or a charge of
cheating under Section 16 of the Code of Student Conduct and
Disciplinary Procedures. DATA THAT MAY BE USEFUL
