    So i don't go to school, and I've never had my papers marked by a teacher so i was wondering just how specific are those mark schemes. Like sometimes I would say 'they have a higher kinetic energy' and the mark scheme would say 'they have more kinetic energy' or something like that, or maybe i would say 'the pressure would decrease' and they would say 'the pressure will be lower' would that still be fine?
    I know it sounds silly but I am not really sure how it works, like when i used to do CIE last year it was a bit easier, (i used to be in school) but i literally forgot how things are in school now lol.
    My current tutor told me not to worry much but i am not sure..?

    Yes -- the examiners are very understanding and those two examples will certainly, most definitely be accepted! Nothing to worry about!

    Sometimes mark schemes have underlined words (very rare but pops up often) which answers MUST include -- however, if you have revised that word is normally vital for the answer and most would get it...
