    Hi,
    Just wondering how many marks do you think they take off? According to my teachers they sometimes take off marks, how much do you think or have found?

    I got 28/30 = 56/60, but i don't know how much they could take off?

    They will only take marks off if your teachers have like 'over-marked'

    The exam board usually ask for a certain number of courseworks from people and they check them. If they are marked correctly then they assume that the other pieces are marked correctly. So if ONE person has been overmarked by 1 mark, everyone in that group looses 1 mark. Thats what we got told anyway...

    So really you could have any number of marks deducted, depends how good your teacher was at marking.

    No it wasn't some of them were only out of 7. You could only ever get as much s 30 then it was doubled to 60 and added to How far How fast which is also out of 60 to make 120.

    Depends how fairly your teachers marked the moderated sample.
