8 Exam Technique - Suggestions  Do questions you find easiest first to help build your confidence. (If you don’t answer within a minute move on…but come back later).  Mark more difficult questions and come back to them  “Pick before peeking”. Cover up possible answers (hand, paper) while you read the question.  Try to anticipate the answer before being distracted by the options  If you see the answer you anticipated circle it  Then check others for a better responseSee Example 3

9 Exam Technique - Suggestions  If you change your mind about an answer alter it but only after careful consideration. First answers are usually correct. Trust your instincts!  Identify key words  Circle or underline to narrow down the questionSee Example 6  “Always”, “never”, “every” are often wrong as they need to be indisputable fact.See Example 5

10 Exam Technique - Suggestions  Be careful of negatives: “Which of these is not…. “All of these except….. Create the equivalent into a positiveSee Example 1  Read all of the alternatives, even if you know the first one is correct. There might be a better answer further on. See Examples 2 and 4  If you don’t know the answer take a calculated guess. Eliminate answers you know are wrong

11 Exam Technique - Suggestions  If you don’t see the answer you expect:  “All of the above” is often a correct response if you can’t verify that more than one might be right.  “None of the above” is usually incorrect  Always guess – but try and eliminate some options.  If all else fails choose b or c. (Examiners feel the correct answer is “hidden” better if it’s surrounded by distractions!)

12 Exam Technique - Suggestions At end: Make sure you’ve attempted all questions Never leave until you’ve checked your exam Think your answer is wrong? Should you change it? Studies have shown that they usually change to the wrong answer! Afterwards – No post mortems. Likely to depress yourself.

13 Level 2 - Other considerations  Always apply DSLV – know who these apply to (below U20)  Assume no Advantage (unless otherwise stated)  AR/TJ – know the different duties  LO – PK or FK?  Mostly FK except off-sides and foul play  Scrum – PK or FK?  Mostly PK. Perhaps learn exceptions?  Learn Definitions (p4 – 9) in IRB Law Book  Attackers = in other team’s half/Defenders = in their own half  Playing time/Actual time  “Oversteps” (for example off-side line)

14 Level 2 - Suggested revision  Learn the IRB Law Book (IRB 2013)  Learn 2013 IRB Law Amendment Trials (LAT) in back of Law Book  Read/learn the DSLV and Amendments (ARRA website “Laws”)  Complete IRB on-line test (  Complete at least past Level 2 papers (on ARRA web-site)  Read IRB “Clarifications in Law” (  No time limit on exam

15 Law Level 2 Exam  Official sitting  Sent to NZRU for marking  Receive NZRU certificate (if you pass)  Eligibility:  Must have passed Level I in last 2 years or  Must have passed Level II in last 5 years  Unofficial sitting  Marked by ARRA
