    I sat the CIE IGCSE English Language Reading Paper in May. For the question on powerful words an phrases, did we have to give an overview of the 2 paragraphs where we took the words from? Someone else on the forum said we had to and that the marks were awarded as follows:

    1 mark for Overview Paragraph 1.
    1 mark for Word 1 Paragraph 1.
    1 mark for Word 2 Paragraph 1.
    1 mark for Word 3 Paragraph 1.
    1 mark for Word 4 Paragraph 1.
    1 mark for Overview Paragraph 2.
    1 mark for Word 1 Paragraph 2.1 mark for Word 2 Paragraph 2.1 mark for Word 3 Paragraph 2.1 mark for Word 4 Paragraph 2.

    This sums to 10 marks. Is the person who said this right? Also, is it possible to get 10/10 without giving overviews?

    Which exam code and question paper is this?

    It seems a very precise way of awarding marks, which I'd consider to be unusual, but the mark scheme will tell you
