2.1 develop the ability to think logically; and

2.2 create curiosity and solve problems.

#### 3.0 GENERAL COMPETENCIES

This examination will measure the competencies of the candidate in:

3.1 applying mathematical concepts and principles in everyday life;

3.2 applying mathematical operations of the whole numbers and fractions; and

3.3 drawing, presenting and analysing data, statistics and graphs.

#### 4.0 EXAMINATION RUBRIC

The Mathematics examination will be of one paper which will be done for 2:00 hours and for candidates with visual impairment, the paper will last for 2:40 hours. The paper will consist of two sections A and B with a total of 45 questions.
