For the cie igcse english language reading paper, when answering the question on powerful words and phrases, do you have to give a small overview of each paragraph from which you are taking words from? Another member of the forum said that 1 mark was available for an overview of each paragraph (as shown in the image I have attached). Is the marking allocation of what this person has said true? Mark schemes say an overview "may" be given. Do you have to give overviews to get 10/10. Lastly, is each analysis of each word worth 1 mark?

max 9/15 for reading. bullets must be equally focused for 10+

not if it was all wrong as you stated. this would mean an unequal distribution due to incorrect bp3 hence no bp3.

if you sat this years paper, bullet point 3 was about what a woman's plans would be for the rest of her trip as her husband was in hospital. I said things like, she couldnt wait to go home and she was ashamed to show her face around the resort where her husband injured himself being stupid... would that get some marks?

It's not really about what you say, it's about how much you say and if it is equal to the others. Of course there is right and wrong information as some of it is factual, however with BP3 it is more implied and if that's what you got then that's what you got. However, what you have said isn't really anything to do with what was asked, in fact it is more like something you would say for BP2. If BP1 and BP2 were perfect, you can still be capped at < 9 for nothing or incorrect details on BP3. What I'm trying to say is that you don't get marks for specific things, it is a more general mark. This general mark cannot be over 9 if there is uneven focus on the bullets. Hope this helped.
