PST Booklet Technique

Anonymous A asked on Mar 18, 2018 - 1 answer


In the PST are you allowed to rip out pages to help you with calculations etc? I have noticed that I'm continually flicking between pages to find data points which is a waste of time?

If you are allowed to rip out pages? would you recommend?

I would imagine that there would be some existing rules that you can check on the PST itself. However, you'd probably still be able to ask the invigilator before you rip it out, which would be my advice. If they are fine with it, it shouldn't affect your score and your outcome.
