# Modern Studies marking Guide watch

1. Ok i have been looking at the marking guide for the moder studies 2009 exam

It states this on paper 1 and 2

Zone Mark: C Pass = 10 or 11
B Pass = 12 or 13
A Pass = 14 and above

(Differs on paper1 for marks)

My question is for the finale mark do i have to gain a pass in all of my essays for the mark from that essay in paper 1 to be added to my finale mark?

For example If in question 1 i got 10 marks question 2 i got 8 question 3 i got 7 question 4 i got 7

So a total of 32 marks but because the 2 questions with 7 marks are nto pass do they count? Or do they ?

Thanks
2. No. Its the overall total that counts.
so for paper one you would have 32 out of 60.
then that 32 is added to the other paper.

and then your toal score is divided by 90.

Yep this is how it is worked out.
So in theory you could get 0 in Q1 3 in Q2 and 15 in Q3/4 then get 30/30 in paper 2 and still get an 'A'.
