Can someone claify this statement which appears in a Maths exam paper for me?Watch
The statement above appears on a Mathematics examination paper. There are 3 questions in Section B of the paper.
What I want to know is: Judging from this statement, if I have attempted all of the three questions in Section B, will the examiner mark my answers to all three questions and count the marks of my answers to the two questions which I got the highest marks out of my answers to all three questions, or, will the examiner only mark my answers to two questions, and his decision as to which answers he marked will be by random picking and brief judgment of random factors based on e.g. neatness of writing to decide which two were the 'best attempts'?
I answered all three questions and I thought that I did particularly bad on one question while I answered the other two completely correctly. I am worried that the examiner has only marked my answers to two of the questions which includes the one I answered badly, and left out my answer to the question I did perfectly!
Don't worry about it. They'll mark all three questions and use your best two to contribute to your final grade. Teachers like to scare their students that examiners will only mark the first two questions they see etc. etc., but that's not at all true. You'll be fine! Good luck
