Students sit a unit test after each of the three units. This is internally assessed and externally moderated by the SQA. These tests are at the level of basic competence. There will be a prelim examination which is designed to mirror the style and difficulty of the external assessment. The external assessment which will be taken in May consists of a three hour written paper. The paper consists of two sections. Section A examines the content of Mechanics units 1 and 2 and carries 68% of the available marks. Usually, 38% will be in the form of short free response questions, the remaining section of the paper will consist of three longer questions. Section B examines the Mathematics for the Applied Mathematics Unit and carries 34% of the overall marks. There are usually a mixture of short free response questions and one longer question.
