    Marking for Short Questions laurajoyce108

    Does anyone know what the deal with short Qs marking is? When they say to give eg: 6+6+5(1),

    does that mean the first and second questions get six marks and third and so on get one. Or does it mean your best two questions get 6 and the rest one? I'm kind of confused as to whether they're trying to make it harder or easier to get marks as they seem to do this a lot.

      First two correct answers would get 6 each and then 1 for every correct answer thereafter :)

      section A is worth 25 per cent so attempt all questions
