## Leaving Certificate Examination, 2007 Higher Level

General Guidelines 1 Penalties of three types are applied to candidates' work as follows: Slips Blunders Misreading - numerical slips - mathematical errors - if not serious S(-1) B(-3) M(-1)

Serious blunder or omission or misreading which oversimplifies: - award the attempt mark only. Attempt marks are awarded as follows: 5 (att 2).

The marking scheme shows one or more approaches to solving each question. In many cases there are other equally valid methods of solution.
