With the new Business course introduced in 2019, there's only one paper for all students at common level. You'll get 2 hours to do the exam and it's worth 270 marks.
The exam has two sections: A & B. Section A is worth 90 marks and has 15 questions, all worth the same amount or marks and you need to answer all of them. Section B is worth 180 marks and has just 3 questions worth 60 marks each. Again you must answer all questions.
