Writing Question 1The mark scheme is divided into bands; there are two marks available within each band.Markers should first decide which band the piece of writing fits into best, and then refine and adjustthe mark further by deciding whether the performance merits the top mark within the band.

  • 3. Grade 9 Writing Mark Scheme: Writing Question 2 – The StoryExaminers should begin by looking at the Task Achievement criterion first and decide on a mark for this before considering the other three criteria. A markshould be given for each of the four criteria, which are then added up to get the complete mark for each candidate. To allocate marks 2 and 4, examinersshould consider the descriptions for marks 1 and 3, and marks 3 and 5 and decide how far the candidate’s performance falls between the two sets ofdescriptions. Candidates may have a very flat profile, scoring 3 marks for each of the criteria for example, or may have a very ragged profile, scoring highermarks for some criteria and lower marks for others.
