The M mark is given for a particular stage if the method used is correct. That is if correctly done without numerical errors yielding the right answer. M marks are not subdivided and unless the M marks for a stage have been awarded no A marks can be gained for that stage

  • Examiners will deduct 2 marks if you misread and present the data given falsely.
  • Examiners will deduct 1 mark for an answer not given to the accuracy asked for.
  • Deductions under iii and iv above shall not be more than once on each occasion in one question
  • 1 mark is deductible for premature approximations that do not considerably simplify the subsequent work.
  • Deductions can only be made from A or B marks and not from M marks.
  • Examiners will give zero for results obtained from work they cannot decipher or which is wholly suppressed and 1 mark is deductible for the omission of an essential working.
  • Once a correct answer is stated examiners will ignore any further workings beyond that stage.
  • For geometric proofs, 1 mark is deductible for the omission of an essential reason or for a wrong reason given. But this should not be more than once in a question.
  • 1 mark is to be deducted for the omission of units or for wrong units. But this should not be more than once in a question.
  • If a single question is attempted on more than one occasion the mark for the best attempt is to be awarded to the student.SOS (see other solutions) shall be written against the others.
  • If more questions are attempted then the rubric allows the lowest marks per those extra questions will be deleted. MQA ANSWERED will be indicated by the examiner to indicate he was aware while marking.
