Version History

Version 2.3.1 (2014-09-15)

  • Removed “Paper” from the title box to conform to University standards.

Version 2.3

  • Updated exam paper formatting to conform to latest University standards.

  • Added “times” class option.

  • ouexam now requires the fontenc, textcomp and lmodern packages.

  • Generating the class documentation now required PDFLaTeX.

Version 2.2

  • Added time allocation macros.

Version 2.1.3

  • Changed the defaults for \material, \copiesof and \otherinstructions to “N/A”.

Version 2.1.2

  • The “subject to inspection” messages that appear in the calculators and permitted material sections of the title page now only appear when calculators are allowed or there actually is additional permitted material, respectively.

Version 2.1.1

  • “END” is now printed at the bottom of the last page of the exam.

Version 2.1

  • Updated the calculators macro to conform to the new University calculator regulations. \allowcalculators now has an optional argument to specify the kinds of calculators permitted.

  • \permitcalculators has been added as a synonym for \allowcalculators.

Version 2.0.2

  • If you omitted any of the required title page macros (\examyear, \papernumber, \papertitle or \department), ouexam crashed when trying to report the error. Fixed.

  • Added the ability to specify “FY” (full-year) as a semester type in the \semester macro.

Version 2.0.1

  • There was a bug in the definition of the macros for numbering sub-sub-questions that meant they were numbered as “(a)” instead of the correct “(i)”. Fixed.

  • When referencing sub-questions or sub-sub-questions, the entire question number was included (that is, “1(b)(iii)” instead of just “(iii)”). This made it difficult to sensibly reference these items, so the relevant macros have been changed to omit this prefixed information. References to questions now print as “1”, sub-questions as “(b)” and sub-sub-questions as “(iii)”. If this does not suit your requirements, change the \labelquestion, \labelsubquestion or \labelsubsubquestion macros.
