Hello, for Corporate and business law (English) Is it possible to have marks if you correctly choose 3 correct answers only out of 6 answers.
Can half marks still be obtained?
or in cases whereby you have to choose 2 answers, and you got only one correct answer, is it possible to have half of the marks?
For both section A (MCQ) and section B (MTQ)December 5, 2019 at 2:24 pm
I’ve just attempted section A of the ACCA’s specimen law exam within which there were 5 questions where I had to select 2 options from a list of 4
When I selected 2 correct options, I scored 2 marks.
When I selected 1 correct and 1 incorrect, I scored …. no marks
So it’s all or nothing
(Thanks for the question – I had previously not known the answer!)December 5, 2019 at 3:46 pm
Thanks for the answer.
But what about section B where we have MTQs and the answers weigh 6 marks.
Won’t we score any marks for partly correct answer?December 5, 2019 at 9:03 pm
I think that you’ll find that those 6 mark questions are subdivided into 2 or 3 separate smaller sections worth 2 or 3 marks per question
However, tomorrow I shall access part B and, if I’m wrong, I’ll get back to you (I’ll get beck to you even if I’m right!)
OK?December 6, 2019 at 8:22 am
thanks a lotDecember 6, 2019 at 12:11 pm
Just tried question 46 from the ACCA’s specimen English law paper
It seems that, where you have to select 2 options from a possible 4 available, you get credit for 2 marks if both choices are correct and you get 1 mark if only one of your choices is correct
So, in summary, in Section A , it’s all or nothing whereas in Section B you score for each correct option that you choose
