**Students review**

- The questions were simple yet calculative and time-consuming
- Answers with integers will have to be entered up to 2 decimal points
- Due to delay in system servers, there was a delay in the transition from one question to another question at certain exam centers
- The marking scheme is provided on each of the computer screens since the start of the exam
