## EDEXCEL GCE MATHEMATICS General Instructions for Marking

1. The total number of marks for the paper is 75. 2. The Edexcel Mathematics mark schemes use the following types of marks: M marks: indicated. A marks: Accuracy marks can only be awarded if the relevant method (M) marks have been earned. B marks are unconditional accuracy marks (independent of M marks) Marks should not be subdivided. method marks are awarded for knowing a method and attempting to apply it, unless otherwise

3. Abbreviations These are some of the traditional marking abbreviations that will appear in the mark schemes and can be used if you are using the annotation facility on ePEN. bod benefit of doubt ft follow through the symbol will be used for correct ft cao correct answer only cso - correct solution only. There must be no errors in this part of the question to obtain this mark isw ignore subsequent working awrt answers which round to SC: special case oe or equivalent (and appropriate) dep dependent indep independent dp decimal places sf significant figures The answer is printed on the paper The second mark is dependent on gaining the first mark
