    General Marking Guidance

    All candidates must receive the same treatment. Examiners must mark the first

    candidate in exactly the same way as they mark the last.

    Mark schemes should be applied positively. Candidates must be rewarded for what

    they have shown they can do rather than penalised for omissions.

    Examiners should mark according to the mark scheme not according to their perception of where the grade boundaries may lie.

    There is no ceiling on achievement. All marks on the mark scheme should be used

    appropriately.

    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 candidates 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 may be limited.

    When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of the mark scheme to a

    candidates response, the team leader must be consulted.

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

    Placing a mark within a level mark band

    The instructions below tell you how to reward responses within a level. Follow these

    unless there is an instruction given within a level. However, where a level has specific guidance about how to place an answer within a level, always follow that

    guidance.

    2 mark bands

    Start with the presumption that the mark will be the higher of the two. An answer which is poorly supported gets the lower mark.

    3 mark bands

    Start with a presumption that the mark will be the middle of the three.

    An answer which is poorly supported gets the lower mark. An answer which is well supported gets the higher mark.

    4 mark bands

    Start with a presumption that the mark will be the upper middle mark of the four.

    An answer which is poorly supported gets a lower mark.

    An answer which is well supported and shows depth or breadth of coverage gets the

    higher mark.

    Mark schemes will indicate within the table where, and which strands of QWC, are

    being assessed. The strands are as follows:

    i) ensure that text is legible and that spelling, punctuation and grammar are

    accurate so that meaning is clear

    ii) select and use a form and style of writing appropriate to purpose and to complex

    subject matter

    iii) organise information clearly and coherently, using specialist vocabulary when

    appropriate.

    Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Marking Guidance

    The spelling, punctuation and grammar assessment criteria are common to GCSE

    English Literature, GCSE History, GCSE Geography and GCSE Religious Studies.

    All candidates, whichever subject they are being assessed on, must receive the

    same treatment. Examiners must mark the first candidate in exactly the same way as they mark the last.

    Spelling, punctuation and grammar marking criteria should be applied positively. Candidates must be rewarded for what they have demonstrated rather than

    penalised for errors.

    Examiners should mark according to the marking criteria. All marks on the marking criteria should be used appropriately.

    All the marks on the marking criteria are designed to be awarded. Examiners should always award full marks if deserved, i.e. if the answer matches the marking criteria.

    Examiners should be prepared to award zero marks if the candidates response is

    not worthy of credit according to the marking criteria.

    When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of the marking criteria to a

    candidates response, the team leader must be consulted.

    Crossed out work should be marked unless the candidate has replaced it with an

    alternative response.

    Handwriting may make it difficult to see if spelling, punctuation and grammar are correct. Examiners must make every effort to assess spelling, punctuation and

    grammar fairly and if they genuinely cannot make an assessment, the team leader must be consulted.

    Specialist terms do not always require the use of complex terminology but the vocabulary used should appropriate to the subject and the question.

    Work by candidates with an amanuensis, scribe or typed script should be assessed

    for spelling, punctuation and grammar.

    Examiners are advised to consider the marking criteria in the following way:

    o How well does the response communicate the meaning? o What range of specialist terms is used?

    o How accurate is the spelling, punctuation and grammar?
