Directions (Q. 1-5):

1). Total BPharm pass = 280 + 225 + 150 + 350 + 165 = 1170
Percentage = 150 × 100/1170 = 12.82% ≈ 13%.

2). Total pass in 2012 = 350 + 175 + 260 + 72 + 65 = 922

3). MPharm total = 250 + 300 + 300 + 350 + 300 +=1500
MPharm pass = 125 + 210 + 240 + 175 + 210 = 960
Percentage = 960 × 100/1500 = 64%

4).
 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 846 760 869 922 943

5). Total = 550 × 1.2 = 660
Failed = (1-0.45) × 660 = 363

Directions (Q. 6-10):
