Notes on marking english papers
I don't tend to create mark schemes for English papers but I have written a few resources which you may find helpful.
- How to Mark 11+ Stories - the general technique may also be applied to 13+ stories, although the criteria are of course more stringent.
- How to tackle (and mark) every type of 11+ comprehension question - a breakdown of all the questions you are likely to encounter at 11+, and how to deal with them. Many of these questions also crop up at 13+ and the general principles still apply. The key difference is usually that there are more Point Evidence Explanation questions at 13+, and examiners expect a greater level of detail, as well as more precise language about linguistic devices and their effects.
