How do follow through marks work and when are they applied? watch

    • Thread Starter

    In my c4 exam, I got the first part of a multiple part question wrong so subsequently got the rest of the questions wrong. However, the answers were right if you presumed the first part to be correct. Would I get error carried forward?

    If you used the answer you got in the first part correctly for the rest of the questions, you get the marks

    You would get marks for doing calculations with the answer you got, but if there was a mark for say getting the final answer as the number 3 you won't get that. (I think it's called an accuracy mark?)
