    I'm new to this site, so apologies if this has already been posted elsewhere, or this is posted in the wrong place.

    If I make an incorrect rounding error, do I loose a mark? Do I only loose one once, or every time?
    If I made a rounding error on a method mark, and therefore got a slightly wrong answer, would it be ecf to the answer mark?

    Do the examiners allow legitimate definitions that aren't the standard in the text book; something that's correct, but not what we're meant to memorise.

    Are they lenient, and give benefit of the doubt?

    I'm retaking AS, and I know all of G481 and G482 inside out. However I just got a C on G481 as my word answers aren't brilliant. They're mostly correct, but not exactly what's written in the mark scheme.
    - I mark myself harshly.

    Thank you.

    - Again apologies if this is too long, or not structured like most questions.

    - I'm taking OCR Physics A
    - Edexcel Mathematics
    Both at AS and A2 as I'm retaking.
