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 berewarded for what they have shown they can do rather than penalisedfor omissions.
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 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 be preparedto award zero marks if the candidate’s response is not worthy of creditaccording to the 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 replacedit with an alternative response.
Quality of Written Communication
Questions which involve the writing of continuous prose will expect candidates to:
write legibly, with accurate use of spelling, grammar and punctuation in orderto make the meaning clear
select and use a form and style of writing appropriate to purpose and tocomplex subject matter
organise information clearly and coherently, using specialist vocabulary whenappropriate.Full marks will be awarded if the candidate has demonstrated the aboveabilities.Questions where QWC is likely to be particularly important are indicated (QWC)in the mark scheme, but this does not preclude others
