Default Points for 5-hour Exams

At least for the old DP exams, there were 120 points available for the six hour exam. Does anyone know if the point total decreases to 100 for the five hour exams? Granted, it could be a 1,000 points and it doesn't matter, but it's helpful for weighting old questions.

The exams will have a 3 hr morning session + 2 hr afternoon session so I would imagine it would be 100 points (20 points/hour)

That's what I would assume if they want to be consistent with weighting between exams. I suppose we will have to wait to find out exactly.
