FINANCIAL MARKETS AND INSTITUTIONS

January 2021

Answer 25 randomized questions out of 50 in SECTION A via the online multiple choice questionnaire

 

Answer TWO questions in SECTION B

The first two will be counted if more than two questions are answered.

You have 48 hours to complete this examination, but it is expected that you spend no more than three times the duration of the original examination completing it.

The total word count should be no more than 1500 words in length. You must not exceed the specified word limit. This is a maximum word limit (+10% does not apply). Markers will be instructed that they do not have to mark anything beyond the 1500 words limit.

You will not be penalised for answers that are shorter than the limit; answers will be given credit for being comprehensive, rather than for being a certain length.

 

Electronic calculators may be used in accordance with the University regulations
