MARKING SCHEME
Markers are advised that unless a task specifies that an answer be provided in a particular form, then an answer that is correct, factually or in practical terms, must be given the available marks. If there is doubt as to the correctness of an answer the relevant NCC Education textbook should be the first authority.

This Marking Scheme has been prepared as a guide only to markers and there will frequently be many alternative responses which will provide a valid answer. Each candidates script must be fully annotated with the markers comments, where applicable, and the marks allocated for each part of the tasks.

Throughout the marking, please credit any valid alternative point.

Notice to Markers Where markers award half marks in any part of a task they should ensure that the total mark recorded for a task is rounded up to a whole mark.
