Be sure that your name and code are written on the space provided above. Round 2 of IMAS is composed of three parts; the total score is 100 marks.
Questions 1 to 5 are given as a multiple-choice test. Each question has five possible options marked as A, B, C, D and E. Only one of these options is correct. After making your choice, fill in the appropriate letter in the space provided. Each correct answer is worth 4 marks. There is no penalty for an incorrect answer.
Questions 6 to 13 are a short answer test. Only Arabic numerals are accepted; using other written text will not be honored or credited. Some questions have more than one answer, as such all answers are required to be written down in the space provided to obtain full marks. Each correct answer is worth 5 marks. There is no penalty for incorrect answers.
Questions 14 and 15 require a detailed solution or process in which 20 marks are to be awarded to a completely written solution. Partial marks may be given to an incomplete presentation. There is no penalty for an incorrect answer.
Use of electronic computing devices is not allowed.
Only pencil, blue or black ball-pens may be used to write your solution or answer. Diagrams are not drawn to scale. They are intended as aids only.
After the contest the invigilator will collect the contest paper.
The following area is to be filled in by the judges; the contestants are not supposed to mark anything here.
