Instructions to Examiners
1
Give due credit to alternative treatments which are correct. Give marks for what is correct; donot deduct marks because the attempt falls short of some ideal answer. Where marks are to bededucted for particular errors specific instructions are given in the marking scheme.
2
Do not deduct marks for poor written communication. Refer the script to the Awardsmeeting if poor presentation forbids a proper assessment. In each paper candidates may be awarded up totwo marks for the Quality of Written Communication in cases of required explanation ordescription. However, no candidate may be awarded more than the total mark for the paper.Use the following criteria to award marks:2 marks: Candidates write with almost faultless accuracy (including grammar, spelling andappropriate punctuation); specialist terms are used confidently, accurately and withprecision.1 mark: Candidates write with reasonable and generally accurate expression (includinggrammar, spelling and appropriate punctuation); specialist terms are used withreasonable accuracy.0 marks: Candidates fail to reach the threshold for the award of one mark.
3
An arithmetical error in an answer should be marked ‘AE’ thus causing the candidate to lose onemark. The candidate’s incorrect value should be carried through all subsequent calculations forthe question and, if there are no subsequent errors, the candidate can score all remaining marks(indicated by ticks). These subsequent ticks should be marked ‘CE’ (consequential error).
4
With regard to incorrect use of significant figures, normally a penalty is imposed if the numberof significant figures used by the candidate is one less, or two more, than the number of significant figures used in the data given in the question. The maximum penalty for an error insignificant figures is
one mark per paper
. When the penalty is imposed, indicate the error inthe script by ‘SF’ and, in addition, write ‘SF’ opposite the mark for that question on the frontcover of the paper to obviate imposing the penalty more than once per paper.
5
 No penalties should be imposed for incorrect or omitted units at intermediate stages in a calculation or which are contained in brackets in the marking scheme. Penalties for unit errors(incorrect or omitted units) are imposed only at the stage when the final answer to a calculationis considered. The maximum penalty is
one mark per question
.
6
All other procedures, including the entering of marks, transferring marks to the front cover andreferrals of scripts (other than those mentioned above) will be clarified at the standardisingmeeting of examiners.
