There will be a unit test on Tuesday, covering everything from the introductory section on History to the end of Chapter 2 (The First World War). Expect the test to have roughly the following breakdown (within a few marks in each section): 40 multiple choice questions (1 mark each), 5 Definitions (2 marks each) and 3 from a choice of 5 long answer questions (6 marks each). Therefore the total value of the test is likely to be 68 marks. Flash cards will again be accepted and given bonus marks -- to a maximum of 5 marks; 30 cards are the minimum needed to achieve a 5.
