In reading this marking scheme, the following points should be noted:
A forward slash / before an answer indicates that the answer is synonymous to that which preceded it or is an alternative answer. Answers separated by a forward slash cannot therefore be taken as two separate answers.
A dash - before an answer indicates that the answer is a separate answer, which may be considered as independent of any other suggested answers to the question.
Square brackets [ ] indicate material relating to the marking scheme which is additional information for the benefit of examiners.
Round brackets ( ) indicate material which may be given in the candidate’s answer but which is not considered to be essential to gain full marks.
N.B. The answers given on the marking scheme should not be considered as the only possible answers that may be accepted. Answers which are synonymous with or equivalent to those on the published marking scheme are also acceptable.
A penalty system involving the deduction of marks may apply in certain questions in order to prevent the possibility of candidates "listing" all the possible answers to a particular question. In such cases, a correct answer may be cancelled out by an additional incorrect answer.
