Next, we post the exam instructions. Read them attentively and contact us if you have any question beforehand.


·         The duration of the exam is 1 hour and 30 minutes.

·         Identify ALL sheets. This is critical, because the exam sheets will be separated.

·         Some questions are not the same in different versions of the exam.

·         The value of the question is presented in squared brackets, e.g., [1v] = worth 1 value in 20.

·         In the open-response questions:

  • Read all paragraphs of the question before you answer the first one.
  • Be objective and concise in your answer. Use only the space given.
  • The exam can be answered in English or in Portuguese.

·         In the multiple-choice questions:

  • Each question only has one fully correct option.
  • If there is more than one correct answer, choose the stronger statement.
  • A question has N options. In your answer, you can select one or more options. However, for each question, the grade is calculated given the options you selected, in the following way:
    • The correct option is worth the full value of the question;
    • Each incorrect option discounts 1/(N-1) of the value.
  • Example:
    • For a question with N=4 options, you are undecided between two options, and select both: A and D.
    • Assuming the correct answer is A, then the grade is 2/3 of question value
    • (the right option A is worth 3/3 but the wrong option D discounts 1/3)
  • Please write the answers of the multiple-choice questions in the table. This is critical, because
  • all markings on the question text itself will be ignored.
  • Write only capital letters (A, B, C, D, …) and inside the respective table cell.
