    So if something gives an obvious curve, do you join them dot to dot? Because on all markschemes it says DONT do it dot to dot. Im really confused to how you are supposed to do it then?

    Can anyone help

    Never join dot to dot, but if they show an obvious curve, just draw a freehand line that goes through all of the dots. It is easy to tell if someone used a ruler to join so it will be obvious that you have drawn a line of best fit.

    oh i see, so dot to dot on the markcheme is meant by straight lines, connect the dots style.

    That makes sense, thanks
