GCSE (9–1) Mathematics – How to apply the mark scheme and strategies to standardise markings
Watch our free on-demand training about how to apply our mark schemes, general marking guidance and strategies on how to standardise marking for GCSE (9–1) Mathematics. Julie, our Chair of Examiners for GCSE Mathematics, talks through an array of questions from past papers including November 2020 examinations with a focus on the reason, interpret and communicate questions (AO2), and the problem-solving questions (AO3).
This on-demand training will cover:
- the types of marks in the assessment and how to read and apply mark schemes
- looking at a selection of past paper questions including November 2020 examinations
- an in-depth talk through of how to mark more complex AO2/AO3 questions like an examiner
- a variety of real-life student responses to questions and clear explanations as to why marks should or should not be awarded for each response.
As you go through the training, you may find it useful to have the ‘Mark Scheme Training Delegate Pack’ to hand.
