3 Answers. 2 Marks.

I’m in the middle of marking prelims at the moment – lucky me!

One thing that has really struck me since picking up the mighty red pen in Scotland is just how many exam questions there are here which require more answers than the marks available for the question. There’s lots of things like “3 correct = 2 marks, 2 correct = 1 mark, 1 correct = 0 marks”

As far as I can remember, these are very rare down south. I find it weird writing a zero next to a correct answer. These Scots really make you work for your marks – “You know a correct answer? Pah! You’ll be having nothing ’till you can come up with two.”

What a strange difference.

So, what do you think ?
