On the mark scheme, you will see some abbreviations. It’s important that you understand these for two reasons: you need to be able to mark your work accurately but you also need to know what the examiners are looking for.
Let’s look at the different types of mark available.
M method marks
These are for a correct method, such as the grid method for multiplications.
P process marks
These are for a correct process in a problem-solving question. You would get it for identifying that you need to multiply.
A accuracy marks
These are for a correct answer. Unless the question requires you to show your working, the correct answer also implies the correct process or method.
C communication marks
These are for communicating, for example coming to a conclusion or explaining an answer.
B unconditional accuracy marks
These are marks purely for the right answer if there are no marks for the method or process.
All the other abbreviations are relatively self-explanatory. There is a table at the start of the mark scheme which explains each of them.
