  • Change of the word ‘Sections’ to Parts’ – The new version of the paper-based test will now say: The paper will be divided into Part 1, 2, 3, 4.

  • Removal of Section 1 example – The paper-based version of the test will now say: Part 1 will not include an example.

  • Removal of the page number references. For example, test takers will be instructed to look at questions 1 – 4.
