  This is the third year the course has run year-long, and the fourth year it is marked by descriptor.
This year there will only be four questions on the exam;
the fifth mark will come from the weekly tests.

Here are some sample papers in the old format. For the new format, pretend one of the questions doesn't exist.
Based on what we have and haven't covered in Semester two, my recommendations are in brackets.
