General Marking Guidance
All candidates must receive the same treatment. Examinersmust mark the first candidate in exactly the same way as theymark the last.
Mark schemes should be applied positively. Candidates mustbe rewarded for what they have shown they can do rather thanpenalised for omissions.
Examiners should mark according to the mark scheme notaccording to their perception of where the grade boundariesmay lie.
There is no ceiling on achievement. All marks on the markscheme should be used appropriately.
All the marks on the mark scheme are designed to beawarded. Examiners should always award full marks if deserved, i.e. if the answer matches the mark scheme.Examiners should also be prepared to award zero marks if thecandidate’s response is not worthy of credit according to themark scheme.
Where some judgement is required, mark schemes will providethe principles by which marks will be awarded andexemplification may be limited.
When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of themark scheme to a candidate’s response, the team leader mustbe consulted.
Crossed out work should be marked UNLESS the candidate hasreplaced it with an alternative response.
