To all Principals

At our last Principals forum meeting, we suggested the creation of an exam paper bank on the AMS website. Basheer Noorgat and I have had some discussion around this matter and would like to invite schools to submit exam papers and marking memos.

This first call is for June 2011 Exam Papers and Marking Memos for all subjects from Grade 4 to 12.

In January 2012, we will call for all November 2011 papers.

In order to facilitate the filing, searching and retrieving of papers on the data base, we have to standardise the way we all save documents. You will appreciate the difficulty we will experience if some people save a file as Natural Science while others call it NS. To this end we would like you save the documents using the File Naming Convention listed below as well as the subject descriptions given at the end of this document.

File naming Convention for Question Papers

Year_Month_Subject_PaperX_Grade_School Name

 

eg. 2011_06_Maths_Paper1_Gr 8_ZMS.doc

 

File naming Convention for Marking Memo

Year_Month_Subject_PaperX_Grade_Memo_School Name

 

eg. 2011_06_Maths_Paper1_Gr 8_Memo_ZMS.doc

Preferred File Formats

1. MS Word Doc / MS Exce
2. l
Pdf (generated from Word or your application directly). If you cannot generate pdf's, download Bullzip Pdf print driver from www.bullzip.com. This will enable you to print to pdf fron any application.
3. Pdf (of scanned document) NB. This results in large file sizes and users cannot copy & paste. Use this as a last resort.

Once your school submits a minimum of ten June 2011 exam papers with memos, we will issue you with a unique username and password that will allow you access to the complete data bank of exam papers and memos contributed by all member schools. You can make this pass word available to all staff at your school who will benefit directly from the wealth of papers in the exam bank.

We will call for November 2011 exam papers and memos in January 2012, Insha Allah. Once your school submits a minimum of ten November 2011 exam papers with memos, we will issue you with a new username and password that will allow you access to the complete data bank of exam papers and memos contributed by member schools. This username and password will expire with the call of the next set of papers.

To be part of this exciting and rich sharing experience, kindly forward your documents, using the file naming convention described above, to Basheer Noorgat on email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
