This marking scheme is the preliminary version before the normal standardisation process and some revisions may be necessary after actual samples of performance have been collected and scrutinised by the HKEAA. Teachers are strongly advised to conduct their own internal standardisation procedures before applying the marking schemes. After standardisation, teachers should adhere to the marking scheme to ensure a uniform standard of marking within the school. 2. It is very important that all teachers should adhere as closely as possible to the marking scheme. In many cases, however, students may have arrived at a correct answer by an alternative method not specified in the marking scheme. In general, a correct alternative solution merits all the marksallocated to that part, unless a particular method has been specified in the question. Teachers should be patient in marking alternative solutions not specified in the marking scheme. Acceptance of alternative answers 3. For the convenience of teachers, the marking scheme was written as detailed as possible. However, it is likely that students would not present their solution in the same explicit manner, e.g. some steps would either be omitted or stated implicitly. In such cases, teachers should exercise their discretion in marking students’ work. In general, marks for a certain step should be awarded if students’ solution indicate that the relevant concept / technique has been used.
