General Marking Guidance
All candidates must receive the same treatment. Examiners must mark the firstcandidate in exactly the same way as they mark the last.
Mark schemes should be applied positively. Candidates must be rewarded for what theyhave shown they can do rather than penalised for omissions.
Examiners should mark according to the mark scheme not according to their perceptionof where the grade boundaries may lie.
There is no ceiling on achievement. All marks on the mark scheme should be usedappropriately.
All the marks on the mark scheme are designed to be awarded. Examiners should alwaysaward full marks if deserved, i.e. if the answer matches the mark scheme. Examinersshould also be prepared to award zero marks if the candidate’s response is not worthyof credit according to the mark scheme.
Where some judgement is required, mark schemes will provide the principles by whichmarks will be awarded and exemplification may be limited.
When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of the mark scheme to acandidate’s response, the team leader must be consulted.
Crossed out work should be marked UNLESS the candidate has replaced it with analternative response.

General Instructions for GCE Mathematics Marking
The total number of marks for the paper is 75.2.
The Edexcel Mathematics mark schemes use the following types of marks:
marks: method marks are awarded for ‘knowing a method and attempting to apply it’, unlessotherwise indicated.
marks: Accuracy marks can only be awarded if the relevant method (M) marks have been earned.
marks are unconditional accuracy marks (independent of M marks)
Marks should not be subdivided.M (method) marks in Mechanics are usually awarded for the application of somemechanical principle to produce an equation:e.g. resolving in a particular direction, taking moments about a point, applying theconservation of momentum principle, etc.
To earn the M mark the following criteria are (usually) applied:The equation(i) should have the correct number of terms(ii) should be dimensionally correctIn addition, for a resolution, all terms that need to be resolved are resolved.
AbbreviationsThese are some of the traditional marking abbreviations that will appear in the mark schemes and can be usedif you are using the annotation facility on ePEN.
bod – benefit of doubt
ft – follow through
the symbol will be used for correct ft
cao – correct answer only
cso - correct solution only. There must be no errors in this part of the question to obtain this mark
isw – ignore subsequent working
awrt – answers which round to
SC: special case
oe – or equivalent (and appropriate)
dep – dependent
indep – independent
dp decimal places
sf significant figures
The answer is printed on the paper
The second mark is dependent on gaining the first mark
