Using your initiative in an exam

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by reilloc, Mar 9, 2012.

  1. There might be something specific in the mark scheme but the general rule is if the answer is correct and the workings are not actually wrong then it scores full marks!
     
  2. I have not seen the paper but often trig questions are stated as requiring answers correct to, say, 2 decimal places.

    If this was the case it is unlikely that a scale diagram drawn in an answer booklet would be able to provide that level of accuracy so it could be considered that the method wasn't valid in this case.

    However I have to say I admire the students' thinking .... it would be a shame if they got no credit at all!
