  1. Part A consists of two questions of which you must answer one. This question is designed to cover a wide range of ebusiness issues, seeking to find out if you have been able to integrate the various topics you have studied. Part A is worth 60 marks out of 100 and is therefore the most important part of the paper.
  2. Part B consists of four questions, worth 20 marks each, and you must answer two of them. The questions in Part B are on specific topics and are designed to determine how much you understand about specific aspects of ebusiness.
