Awesome. Out of interest though, why would we get an extra hour for that? I type faster than I write.

New format.

Adjustment for writing typing out a formula.

Not everyone "types" faster than they write when they've spent considerable time already practicing the Exam via writing.

Will this continue to be an extra hour? Or is it just a bonus for the first sitting?

I scraped by and got a 6 with a 52.5.
