    Is there any way of looking at the mark schemes for the exams that we have taken in June 2005? If not, why is it that the boards don't release the mark schemes until we get our results?

    I think, its because they don't yet know what the grade boundaries are.

    You can't. They are not released yet. You would find them online at around september and onwards.

    If they release it now, students can see the mark scheme online and they will know the answers.

    If any of the teachers at your school are marking exam papers for anything then they will have a copy of the mark scheme. They probably won't show them to you though..can't actually see the point in looking anyway as it will only cause stress, can't change what you wrote so you might as well wait till results day. My drama teacher is marking theatre studies papers so has the mark scheme for the AS resit I took. I only know this because I was telling my other teacher what I wrote and he said that whilst we did the exam they were looking at the mark scheme. I don't want to know what it said in detail as it will just cause me too much stress!!
