- Please also understand that, unless things have changed, there is no half-mark awarded in O-Level Maths. Also it is nigh impossible for ECF if the part involved only carries 1 mark.

P.S. And should you need some quick help to get a grip on your remaining papers beyond this most exhausting of weeks, The Temple shall be open this Sunday and next Saturday for your final Social Studies & Chemistry MCQ tune-up respectively.
Remember, remember. Now's not the time to slip in November!
