Examination timing - First examinations May 2016


IB Higher level exams

The HL IB chemistry exam consists of three papers.

Paper 1: multiple choice - 1 hour (20% - 40 marks)

There are 40 questions and you are given 60 minutes to complete them.

This works out to an average of 1 minute and 30 seconds per question. This is obviously simplistic as the questions assess different skills, some of which require very little time and some require working out.

The best approach is to read through the questions one at a time answering as you go.
