sketching of graphs

Hi, I have just started my preparation for STEP 1 and had a question regarding the sketching of graphs.....
Will we be provided with graph sheets while sketching or will we have to sketch on the plain blank sheets ?

You will be sketching the graphs in the answer booklets which have lined paper in them. Graph paper is not necessary (you will only be asked to sketch graphs, not plot them accurately!).

In this video there are a couple of sketch graphs drawn which shows you the sort of thing needed. You can also see some in the solutions to Foundation Assignment 2.
