    Was just wondering if anyone's noticed a pattern of incorrect marking within the Reading L3-5 paper this year? Specifically questions 13 and 20 where marks have not been awarded for correct responses.

    I received an email that's been going between local heads with this information on it, and within half an hour of checking scripts I've found a total of 9 missing marks!

    Woulod be interested to know if anyone's found similar...

    Were these both find and copy questions? The marking of these are usually very harsh and sometimes even minor copying errors are not accepted in the mark scheme or guidance given to markers.

    Yes, they were both 'Find & Copy' The Mark Scheme booklet is very clear on what is acceptable. If they have written ANYTHING extra, then no mark.
