Hi,
I don't know if I will explain my problem clearly but I will try. For my
students' tests, I use a master file. If I insert this piece of code, there
is a large white space that is created between the horizontal line of the
header and the first exercise.


\startMPcode makes an image so it will take space

for definitions use \startMPdefinitions


\startMPcode
def suite (expr n, t) =
begingroup
numeric u;
u := 5mm;
pickup pencircle scaled 5pt;
for i=0 upto n:
for j=0 upto n:
drawdot (i*u,j*u) shifted(t*u,0) withcolor \MPcolor{darkred};
endfor
endfor
endgroup
enddef;

def Suite (expr n, t) =
begingroup
numeric u;
u := 5mm;
pickup pencircle scaled 5pt;
for i=0 upto n:
drawdot(i*u,0) shifted(t*u,0) withcolor \MPcolor{blue};
endfor
endgroup
enddef;

def cross (expr n, t) =
begingroup
numeric u;
u := 5mm;
pickup pencircle scaled 5pt;
for i=-n upto n:
drawdot(0,i*u) shifted(t*u,0) withcolor \MPcolor{blue};
endfor
endgroup
enddef;
\stopMPcode
