Scenarios may be drawn from any situation involving aspects of governance. This is likely to be, but need not be, in an organisational setting.
Professional marks will be available in Section A for presentation, logical flow of argument and quality of argument.
Section B questions are more likely to assess a range of discrete subject areas from the main syllabus section headings. They may require evaluation and synthesis of information contained within short scenarios and application of this information to the question requirements.
