General Marking Guidance
All candidates must receive the same treatment. Examiners must markthe first candidate in exactly the same way as they mark the last.
Mark schemes should be applied positively. Candidates must be rewardedfor what they have shown they can do rather than penalised foromissions.
Examiners should mark according to the mark scheme not according totheir perception of where the grade boundaries may lie.
There is no ceiling on achievement. All marks on the mark scheme shouldbe used appropriately.
All the marks on the mark scheme are designed to be awarded.Examiners should always award full marks if deserved, i.e. if the answermatches the mark scheme. Examiners should also be prepared to awardzero marks if the candidate’s response is not worthy of credit according tothe mark scheme.
Where some judgement is required, mark schemes will provide theprinciples by which marks will be awarded and exemplification may belimited.
When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of the markscheme to a candidate’s response, the team leader must be consulted.
Crossed out work should be marked UNLESS the candidate has replaced itwith an alternative response.
