How is Paper 1 Marked

Recommended Posts

Our teacher showed us an example mark scheme for a paper 1 for Lang and Lit and I saw that there are suggestions for what an excellent analysis will have.

When examiners look at our paper 1's will they only give us excellent (9-10) if we mention/elaborate on those points or can we make other points that we support with evidence?

Thanks!

Pertinent, detailed and well-supported commentary will always get you the points.

The answer to your question is "no".

When talking about "suggestions" I suppose you mean the markingscheme? Well, those are meant as suggestions (very good ones and usually _key ideas) but that does not mean you will not be awarded points for making other points, in addition to *some or all of the ones given in the markingscheme. That's what my tutors for English A1 told me, anyway.
