Question 1: Response Guidance

Mark Scheme

It is important that you understand the mark scheme, because this is what teachers are looking at to judge your work. I want you to focus on how you can get the top marks for each question.

  1. Identify and interpret explicit and implicit information and ideas
  2. Select and synthesise evidence from different texts

Successful Response

Make sure:

  1. You highlight your source to locate possible answers that correspond with the statements
  2. On your source sheet, write down the letter of the four statements you believe to be true.

Make sure you are certain – get it right the first time!

  1. Once you are certain, shade in the four circles that you believe are the correct answers.
  2. Leave a circle untouched until you are completely certain.

We all make mistakes:

  1. If you realise that you have shaded the wrong circle, cross out the whole box.
  2. If you change your mind and decide that you want a crossed box, draw a circle around the box to indicate that you want this to be your answer.
