READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST If you have been given an Answer Booklet, follow the instructions on the front cover of the Booklet. Write your Centre number, candidate number and name on all the work you hand in. Write in dark blue or black pen on both sides of the paper. You may use a soft pencil for any diagrams or graphs. Do not use staples, paper clips, highlighters, glue or correction ?uid. Answer all the questions. Give non-exact numerical answers correct to 3 signi?cant ?gures, or 1 decimal place in the case of angles in degrees, unless a different level of accuracy is speci?ed in the question. The use of a calculator is expected, where appropriate. Results obtained solely from a graphic calculator, without supporting working or reasoning, will not receive credit. You are reminded of the need for clear presentation in your answers. The number of marks is given in brackets [ ] at the end of each question or part question. At the end of the examination, fasten all your work securely together.
