Methodology for nerds:
Spoiler:
Show
So, I took similar questions from previous papers to use as a template for the mark scheme. I took the ums conversions for that paper, and multiplied each conversion value by the proportion of marks in this years paper which were from the similar questions. I then summed the values across all the different papers to get a set of results which look loosely correct. Some conversions (particularly the top 10) are lacking. This is because a lot of these UMS values do not have raw values attached to them on the old papers, and so it is difficult to anticipate where these will fall. Sometimes, if only one or two raw values are missing for that UMS value, I will bisect the interval between the two adjacent conversion values, to help get more conversions on my list. If anyone has any questions about my methods, ask me and I will send you my spreadsheet and you will have a nerd-gasm at how complex it looks.
