General Instructions 
1. The Marking Scheme provides   general guidelines to reduce subjectivity in the marking.  
The answers given in the Marking Scheme are the suggested answers.  The content is 
thus indicative.  If the student has given any other answer, which is different from the 
one given in the Marking Scheme, but conveys the correct meaning, such answer should 
be given full weightage. 
 
2. Evaluation is to be done as per the instructions provided in the Marking Scheme. It 
should not be done according to one's own interpretation or any other consideration. 
Marking Scheme should be strictly adhered to and religiously followed. 
 
3. If the question has parts, please award marks in the right hand side for each part.  Marks 
awarded to the different parts of the question should then be totalled up and written in 
the left hand margin and circled. 
  
4. If the question does not have any parts, marks will be awarded in the left-hand margin. 
 
5. If the candidate has attempted any extra question or part, marks obtained in the best 
question/part should be retained and the other answer should be scored out. 
 
6. In the Marking Scheme, a slash (/) indicates alternative answers; any one such answer is 
counted as correct. 
 
7. Brackets ( ) indicate optional information; the mark will be awarded whether the part in 
brackets is included or not.
