I'd say SCZ is probably the more common abbreviation.

As long as you use the word in full the first time you use it (in a particular answer), followed by your preferred abbreviation in brackets, then any sensible abbreviation should be fine. I wouldn't suggest just using an abbreviation and hoping the marker recognises what word you mean.
