Effective January 1, 2013, when taking an exam, in lieu of scratch paper and pencils, candidates will be provided with two double sided, laminated, colored sheets called "noteboards," as well as a fine point marker for making notations.
The candidates will be directed to write their examination Launch Code (from their NTS) on the noteboards.
