What if your answer wasn't in the markscheme but it's right? Will they still give you the marks, especially for sciences?

The rule is slightly different in biology, where you can sometimes get certain words and phrases in the mark scheme which are underlined so that, unless you have those words, you don't get the mark, even if your answer is otherwise correct. It's harsh but that's the way it is. This can happen in other science subjects too but, in my experience, it's most common in biology.Last edited by troubadour.; 12-09-2015 at 11:02.

if youre answer isnt in the mark scheme its up to the examiner to decide if they award the mark or not - if its maths then they will be more likely to as with maths an answer is often either wrong or right, however if there are makrs for working out they may not award those

If a question asked you about the chemical composition of air and you listed carbon dioxide, helium, neon, argon and water vapour while leaving out nitrogen or oxygen you shouldn't expect full marks.
