  • General marking guidance  All candidates must receive the same treatment. Examiners must mark the

    last candidate in exactly the same way as they mark the first.  Mark schemes should be applied positively. Candidates must be rewarded for

    what they have shown they can do rather than be penalised for omissions.  Examiners should mark according to the mark scheme – not according to

    their perception of where the grade boundaries may lie.  All the marks on the mark scheme are designed to be awarded. Examiners

    should always award full marks if deserved, i.e. if the answer matches the mark scheme. Examiners should also be prepared to award zero marks if the candidate’s response is not worthy of credit according to the mark scheme.

     Where some judgement is required, mark schemes will provide the principles by which marks will be awarded and exemplification/indicative content will not be exhaustive.

     When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of the mark scheme to a candidate’s response, a senior examiner must be consulted before a mark is given.

     Crossed-out work should be marked unless the candidate has replaced it with an alternative response.

    Specific marking guidance When deciding how to reward an answer, examiners should consult both the indicative content and the associated marking grid(s). When using a levels-based mark scheme, the ‘best fit’ approach should be used.

     Examiners should first decide which descriptor most closely matches the answer and place it in that level.

     The mark awarded within the level will be decided based on the quality of the answer and will be modified according to how securely all bullet points are displayed at that level.

     Indicative content is exactly that – they are factual points that candidates are likely to use to construct their answer.

     It is possible for an answer to be constructed without mentioning some or all of these points, as long as they provide alternative responses to the indicative content that fulfils the requirements of the question. It is the examiner’s responsibility to apply their professional judgement to the candidate’s response in determining if the answer fulfils the requirements of the question.

    Placing a mark within a level  Examiners should first decide which descriptor most closely matches the

    answer and place it in that level. The mark awarded within the level will be decided based on the quality of the answer and will be modified according to how securely all bullet points are displayed at that level.

     In cases of uneven performance, the points above will still apply. Candidates will be placed in the level that best describes their answer according to the descriptors in that level. Marks will be awarded towards the top or bottom of that level depending on how they have evidenced each of the descriptor bullet points. If the candidate’s answer meets the requirements fully, markers should be prepared to award full marks within the level. The top mark in the level is used for work that is as good as can realistically be expected within that level.

  •  If the candidate’s answer only barely meets the requirements of the level, markers should consider awarding marks at the bottom of the level. The bottom mark in the level is used for an answer that is the weakest that can be expected within that level.

     The middle marks of the level are used for an answer that is a reasonable match to the descriptor. This might represent a balance between some characteristics of the level that are fully met and others that are only barely met.
