I understand that the college is unhappy with "illicit" Blank Bank questions and as a consequence MCQs from 2017 are Pass/Fail. However to keep the dream alive for our up and coming colleagues, should you wish to contribute, please agree to remember some MCQs for the paper and post here after the exam


Please add in the questions you remembered. (If after the exam) - Otherwise if you are planning to remember some questions please put the number and place your name/mark on it as per previous years.
