Mark Scheme
Mark schemes are prepared by the Principal Examiner and considered, together with therelevant questions, by a panel of subject teachers. This mark scheme includes anyamendments made at the standardisation meeting attended by all examiners and is the schemewhich was used by them in this examination. The standardisation meeting ensures that themark scheme covers the candidates’ responses to questions and that every examiner understands and applies it in the same correct way. As preparation for the standardisationmeeting each examiner analyses a number of candidates’ scripts: alternative answers notalready covered by the mark scheme are discussed at the meeting and legislated for. If, after this meeting, examiners encounter unusual answers which have not been discussed at themeeting they are required to refer these to the Principal Examiner.It must be stressed that a mark scheme is a working document, in many cases further developed and expanded on the basis of candidates’ reactions to a particular paper.Assumptions about future mark schemes on the basis of one year’s document should beavoided; whilst the guiding principles of assessment remain constant, details will change,depending on the content of a particular examination paper.

he Assessment Objectives
Assessment in English Literature is unlike that in most other subjects where AssessmentObjectives can be assessed discretely.
Experience of examining in this subject and research conducted into how candidatesapproach answering questions show that there is never an occasion where one can assess asingle Assessment Objective discretely.
Some Assessment Objectives, such as AO1 and AO2, are present in all questions on thispaper.
In this paper, some Assessment Objectives have different weightings in different questions.
The specification and its units have been constructed and the questions have been framedso that the Assessment Objectives are targeted in the proportions set out in the specificationand reprinted below.
