    Do you know if you would get full marks on a question worth 3 marks, if the working is wrong but the answer was correct

    Depends how. If it's just done with a different method you'd get full marks but if they can clearly see you have got the answer by pure luck then I doubt it. Some mark schemes do give full marks for just giving the answer though, it really depends on the type of question.

    Thanks for the help. Could I expect to receive 1/3 and still get an answer mark?

    No.

    1 or 2 of the marks are awarded for correct showing of working.

    You can never get an answer mark without marks awarded for a method

    Ok, 0/3 it is then for that question. I should be able to get an a* still, so it's ok. Thanks for the help!
