What does awrt mean in mark schemes???

Sometimes it says "accept awrt" and I have no idea what that means :confused:

And "cao" "cso"??? Also When it says"M1 A1" then a tick, after only giving the answer :"20i+10j + (3i+8j)t", where is the M1??(method mark)? Do you get both M1 and A1 for just writing that or do you have to show the extra work out to get the M1??

If you know any other expressions, please put them done as well, thanks:rolleyes:

M mark is for method
m or dM mark is dependent on one or more M marks and is for method
A mark is dependent on M or m marks and is for accuracy
B mark is independent of M or m marks and is for method and accuracy
E mark is for explanation

or ft or F follow through from previous
incorrect result MC mis-copy
CAO correct answer only MR mis-read
CSO correct solution only RA required accuracy
AWFW anything which falls within FW further work
AWRT anything which rounds to ISW ignore subsequent work
ACF any correct form FIW from incorrect work
AG answer given BOD given benefit of doubt
SC special case WR work replaced by candidate
OE or equivalent FB formulae book
A2,1 2 or 1 (or 0) accuracy marks NOS not on scheme
ñx EE deduct x marks for each error G graph
NMS no method shown c candidate
PI possibly implied sf significant figure(s)

does this include if you give your answer with a recurring number? (Specifically in AQA A-Level Maths)
