does anyone know what examiners do if a student gives an answer that isn't listed on the mark scheme with other answers but could possibly be correct? Do examiners check/ask about answers they are not sure about as in- not sure if the answer a student gave- whether it's correct or not?
In my AS law exam, I wrote an answer that isn't on any of AQA's past paper mark schemes for the same question. After looking at their past paper's mark schemes- it only listed two cases and mine wasn't on there.
I know it's valid though since I had gotten the answer from Parliament's Hansard site which explains the conversations held by ministers from both houses of Parliament. I did spell it wrong however which is freaking me out but if they typed my point google, they would see it isn't me making up answers.
My fear is that when an examiner is marking my work, he/she would automatically think it's incorrect because it isn't listed on the mark scheme without checking it's validity.
