All math exams have two sections. Section One is calculator free, weighted at 35% and typically comprises of 7 or 8 questions totalling about 50 marks to be answered in 50 minutes. Section Two, weighted at 65% and typically 12 or 13 questions totalling about 100 marks to be answered in 100 minutes, assumes use of a CAS calculator.
Schools ordering Unit 1 math papers will receive one exam covering the entire unit content and an additional exam that has reduced content from the last topic. The additional exam will reflect recent 2023 SCSA syllabus updates:

Thank you for setting and producing such excellent exam papers.
I'm pleased to tell you your papers are held in high regard by many HOLA's.
