 General Marking Guidance
All candidates must receive the same treatment. Examiners mustmark the first candidate in exactly the same way as they mark thelast.
Mark schemes should be applied positively. Candidates must berewarded for what they have shown they can do rather thanpenalised for omissions.
Examiners should mark according to the mark scheme not accordingto their perception of where the grade boundaries may lie.
There is no ceiling on achievement. All marks on the mark schemeshould be 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 theanswer matches the mark scheme. Examiners should also beprepared to award zero marks if the candidate’s response is notworthy of credit according to the mark scheme.
Where some judgement is required, mark schemes will provide theprinciples by which marks will be awarded and exemplification maybe limited.
When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of the markscheme to a candidate’s response, the team leader must beconsulted.
Crossed out work should be marked UNLESS the candidate hasreplaced it with an alternative response.
