Mark scheme notesUnderlying principle
The mark scheme will clearly indicate the concept that is being rewarded, backed up by examples. It isnot a set of model answers.For example:(iii) Horizontal force of hinge on table top66.3 (N) or 66 (N)
correct indication of direction [no ue][Some examples of direction: acting from right (to left) / to the left / West/ opposite direction to horizontal. May show direction by arrow. Do notaccept a minus sign in front of number as direction.]
This has a clear statement of the principle for awarding the mark, supported by some examplesillustrating acceptable boundaries.
Mark scheme format
You will not see ‘wtte’ (words to that effect). Alternative correct wording should be creditedin every answer unless the ms has specified specific words that must be present. Such wordswill be indicated by underlining e.g. ‘resonance’1.2
Bold lower case will be used for emphasis.1.3
Round brackets ( ) indicate words that are not essential e.g. “(hence) distance is increased”.1.4
Square brackets [ ] indicate advice to examiners or examples e.g. [Do not accept gravity][ecf].
Unit error penalties
A separate mark is not usually given for a unit but a missing or incorrect unit will normallycause the final calculation mark to be lost.2.2
Incorrect use of case e.g. ‘Watt’ or ‘w’ will
be penalised.2.3
There will be no unit penalty applied in ‘show that’ questions or in any other question wherethe units to be used have been given.2.4
The same missing or incorrect unit will not be penalised more than once within one question.2.5
Occasionally, it may be decided not to penalise a missing or incorrect unit e.g. the candidatemay be calculating the gradient of a graph, resulting in a unit that is not one that should beknown and is complex.2.6
The mark scheme will indicate if no unit error penalty is to be applied by means of [no ue].
Significant figures
Use of an inappropriate number of significant figures in the theory papers will normally only bepenalised in ‘show that’ questions where use of too few significant figures has resulted in thecandidate not demonstrating the validity of the given answer.
