    Hi there,

    I've been asked to write and teach the AQA Classical Civilizations course at my school this year as we're having a year off History...don't ask, but I have to say that I have no idea about marking the extended answers on the Higher paper. The mark schemes seem very vague, described only as 'L1 reasonable answer, L2 good answer, L3 excellent answer' without any explanation as to the differences, and I cannot fathom why one sample response is given a low mark and the next full marks.

    Is there anyone out there who can help?

    Thanks very much.

    James
