Multi-task questions (MTQs) contain a series of tasks for students to complete, which relate to one or more scenarios. These tasks can be made up of different question types – multiple choice, multiple response, multiple response matching, number entry, hotspots and gapfill questions.

The F4 CBE is now available and is made up of two sections. Section A will be worth 70 marks. It will contain a mixture of 20 one-mark and 25 two-mark questions. Candidates will be required to select the correct one from a list of potential answers. As objective test (OT) questions there can only be one correct answer to each question. Section B will contain five six-mark multi-task questions (MTQs).
