Method marking .....Watch
Well i took my S1 exam today and i feel so devastated that i did a lot of silly mistakes
I am wondering if there are anything called method marking ....
But during the AS exams i calculated that i would get something like 90 percent in maths as i knew where i made a mistake
I did not take method markings into account
But when the results appeared i got 90 percent
Does it mean method marking is just a myth?
As if my paper was mark on the basis of method marking i would have gotten somewhere between 95-97%
M Method mark, awarded for a valid method applied to the problem. Method marks are not lost for numerical errors, algebraic slips or errors in units. However, it is not usually sufficient for a candidate just to indicate an intention of using some method or just to quote a formula; the formula or idea must be applied to the specific problem in hand, e.g. by substituting the relevant quantities into the formula. Correct
application of a formula without the formula being quoted obviously earns the M mark and in some cases an M mark can be implied from a correct answer.
A Accuracy mark, awarded for a correct answer or intermediate step correctly obtained. Accuracy marks cannot be given unless the associated method mark is earned (or implied).
B Mark for a correct result or statement independent of method marks.
