    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering if I would lose marks for the following:
    Picture 1:
    In terms of this picture, the question asked basically how could someone confirm their conclusions or make the data more reliable..

    I gave the following answers:
    - Repeat the experiment
    - Carry out experiment with greater range of temperatures
    - Test on a different material

    Obviously the 'material' is ambiguous and what I really meant was actually different types of fabrics, not only cotton - so it's actually wrong. But, what I was wondering is that if I gave two correct answers and an extra answer, which is incorrect - would I still get 2 marks (full marks)?
    Also, in terms of the brackets - does that mean that doesn't have to be included in the answer or does it mean it does have to be included.

    Picture 2:
    I listed all the fractions in correct order except two - I wrote them the other way round. Does this mean I would be kicked out of the Band 3 as the answer has not met the criteria because it specifically says 'correctly'. I know this is an idiotic question but lol.. I gave the temperature gradient link but just got the fractions in the wrong order.

    For the first one I think you would get the marks since you give two right answers.
    As you didn't get the second one spot on, I don't think you would get the marks in band 3 for that.

    Thanks :P.
    I make so many silly mistakes in like 5 past papers I've done - all lost 4-5 marks due to silly mistakes. I could always get A* but these mistakes restrict me. I need to start revising lol

    You're better off making the mistakes now so you can learn from them. Good luck for your exams.
