I'm probably being a bit thick but trying to mark a Christmas Carol mock and the student has written a pretty decent answer but he's focused mainly on the novella as a whole rather than on the extract. How much do I mark him down? it doesn't say anything about that on the mark scheme. Well, under AO1 I suppose if he's not referred enough to the extract then that would mean he's not responding to the task, so he'd be in perhaps Level 2 for AO1 but higher Levels for the other AO's. Does that sound right? So basically his grade's going to be pulled down by his AO1. I wonder if that makes sense to anyone. I think I'm losing the plot!
