Dear Mr Mike,
Just quick question: I see in the marking scheme the model answers normally include more points needed to a full mark. For example: they mark each point 2 marks, in a 12 marks question the model answer has 8 ideas (points). My question is: do we need to write all 8 points as the model answer or just 6/8 points?
Thank you in advance!
Often a marking scheme will say “1 mark per valid point to a maximum of (say) 8”
There may, in total, be 10 or 12 potentially valid points but the maximum available to be scored is 8
If your question is “Do I have to write ALL the points included within a suggested solution to score full marks?” the answer is (most likely) “NO”
It would be a bit unusual for a 12 mark question to have only 8 markable points in the solution
It’s more likely that a 6 mark question should have 8 points in the solution unless …..
….. the question is a double header! “Identify AND explain ….”
OK?
