Changes to the SL test

Recommended Posts

My teacher mentioned that, starting this year, there will be changes to the paper I and paper II test. I am not sure what she meant. Can anyone elaborate? XD

On paper 1 - you will not be allowed to use a calculator.

On paper 2 - you will be allowed to use a calculator.

Basically, paper 1 questions will require a more analytical approach since you shouldn't need to use the GDC while in paper 2, you will need the calculator (but not for all!)

Also, Paper 1 have section A of short-response questions and section B with extended-response question. All questions are required to be answered. The same thing goes with Paper 2. Before Paper 1 used to have only short-answer questions while Paper 2 was extened-response questions.
