Hi all,

I'm practicing for the October MAT exam and am finding it impossible to mark the long answer questions - perhaps because I am so used to a step by step A Level mark scheme. How have you marked answers that are partially correct? Is it just right or wrong? Is it down to examiner discretion? Ahhh... I have no clue.

Any advice would be appreciated. Many thanks!

The MAT mark schemes include the marks for parts - say 4 marks out of the total 15 - and then a more detailed mark scheme used by the markers will provide finer grading - so that a solution might say receive 2 or 3 of those 4 marks. But those finer mark schemes aren't made public.

Oh okay that makes sense, thanks!
