1 : Please note that the 2008 solutions for traditional version of Higher Certificate will not be available as 2008 is the last year of examination. Solutions for the 2008 modular version of the Higher Certificate are available.

2 : Please note that the 2008 solutions for the existing (traditional) version of Graduate Diploma will not be available. Specimen of the new (modular) version of the Graduate Diploma will be provided.

#: Options G “Social, Economic and Financial Statistics” is available for examination in each year from 2003 and onwards. Specimen paper of it is however available only in the “2003 Options Paper” and “2004 Options Paper”.

^: The 2008 specimen paper does not include Option G Social, Economic and Financial Statistics. This is because the Option G will not be available in the 2009 examination.
