MATSEC admits Chemistry A level paper mistake

The MATSEC Board said this afternoon that despite careful checks prior to the printing of the examination papers, there was a mistake in one of the questions of Paper 1 of the Advanced level in Chemistry that was held today.

"In question 7, which carried 6% towards the final mark, the chemical “ethanol” as printed should have read “1-butanol”. This error made the question unworkable.

"The Board regrets the error and informs candidates that the full marks allotted to the question will be awarded to all candidates."
