GCSE mark schemes

For sciences (bio chem physics, specifically aqa but if not it’s fine) has anyone spotted any trends in the mark scheme? Cus for me I get there’s specific ways to answer qs but idk how to say them

State the obvious. The AQA mark schemes often have stupidly obvious answers that everyone thought but didn't write, to ambiguous questions such as Evaluate this method/medical procedure or suggest an improvement to this experiment.

But I would say mark schemes are like learning a different language - obvious nowhere near as challenging, but once you do enough exam questions, your intuition becomes a lot better.

Examiners have weird minds.
