Assumptionsabout future mark schemes on the basis of one year’s document should be avoided; whilst theguiding principles of assessment remain constant, details will change, depending on the contentof a particular examination paper.Copyright 2015 AQA and its licensors.

3MARK SCHEME – GCSE ENGLISH LANGUAGE – PAPER 2Marking methodsIn fairness to students, all teachers must use the same marking methods. The following advicemay seem obvious, but all teachers must follow it as closely as possible.126.96.36.199.Refer constantly to the mark scheme throughout marking.Always credit accurate, relevant and appropriate answers which are not given in themark scheme.Use the full range of marks. Don’t hesitate to give full marks when the answer meritsthem.The key to good and fair marking is consistency. Do not change your standard ofmarking.
4MARK SCHEME – GCSE ENGLISH LANGUAGE – PAPER 2INTRODUCTIONThe information provided for each question is intended to be a guide to the kind of answersanticipated and is neither exhaustive nor prescriptive. All appropriate responses should begiven credit.Where literary or linguistic terms appear in the Mark Scheme, they do so generally for the sakeof brevity. Knowledge of such terms, other than those given in the specification, is not required.However, when determining the level of response for a particular answer, examiners shouldtake into account any instances where the student uses these terms effectively to aid the clarityand precision of the argument.Level of response marking instructionsLevel of response mark schemes are broken down into four levels. There are two, three, four,five or six marks in each level; dependent upon question.Please note: The sample responses in each Indicative Standard/Content Descriptorcolumn are not intended to be complete, full or model answers. Instead, they are thereas a guide, to provide you with part of an answer, an indicative extract of a response atthe required level. If a student was to continue to develop a response at that standard,they would gain a mark at that level.Step 1 Determine a levelStart at the lowest level of the mark scheme and use it as a ladder to see whether the answermeets the descriptor for that level. The descriptor for the level indicates the different qualitiesthat might be seen in the student’s answer for that level. If it meets the lowest level then go tothe next one and decide if it meets this level, and so on, until you have a match between thelevel descriptor and the answer. With practice and familiarity you will find that for betteranswers you will be able to quickly skip through the lower levels of the mark scheme.Step 2 Determine a markOnce you have assigned a level you need to decide on the mark. You may well need to readback through the answer as you apply the mark scheme to clarify points and assure yourselfthat the level and the mark are appropriate.The Skills Descriptors column indicates the different skills that students need to demonstrate intheir answer for that level. To achieve full marks in a level, students should meet all of the skillsdescriptors in that level. Students achieving marks at the bottom of a level will ideally have metall skills descriptors of the previous level and at least one of the skills descriptors in that level.An answer which contains nothing of relevance to the question must be awarded no marks.

The image of‘pots of burning fat’ has a bizarrebut authentic effect on the sensesof both smell and sight –melodramatic and intriguing of itselffor the modern reader, sinceburning fat has connotations ofdanger and error rather thanentertainment.The authentic direct speech of theman, which enhances his‘countryman’s’ dress, is engagingfor the reader, who is also thenenticed to ‘come for’erd’. Theadjective, ‘tragic’ and the noun,‘swell’, attached to theprofessionals who ‘foot it toperfection’, suggest that theirperformance is beautifully contrivedboth on and off the stage.At the bottom ofthe level, astudent will haveLevel 3 and atleast one of theskills descriptors.This indicative standard is not amodel answer, or a completeresponse. Nor does it seek toexemplify any particular content.Rather, it is an indication of thestandard for the level.

Thedescription of the stalls as ‘gailylighted up’ gives the sense of abright, colourful and seductivescene which is also suggested bythe word ‘attractive’ in the phrase‘the most attractive goods’. Thealliteration in ‘pennyworths ofpickled salmon’ helps it seemmouth-watering, whereas the word‘bilious’ in ‘species of snail floatingin a somewhat bilious-lookinggreen liquid’ is revolting and alsomakes the reader feel sick.

Dickensdescribes a ‘state of perpetualbustle and noise’, and vehicles‘crammed with people atutmost speed’ making thejourney seem risky, perhapsdangerous, even lethal, butdoes so employing an extendedlist of lively sights and sounds,whereas Elizabeth Day, whosegeneral tone is one of wryhumour, describes her trainjourney to Castle Cary as theheight of civilised calm,sophistication and quiet, withstudents ‘sipping Pimms andmaking polite chit-chat’.This indicative standard is not amodel answer, or a completeresponse.

Elizabeth Daypresents a different, civilisedand controlled, 21st centuryversion: ‘It’s a very safe, familyfriendly atmosphere’ says EdThaw, and ‘the crowd remainedgood-humoured throughout.’She cites peoples’ thoughts toreinforce her changingperspective. This perspective is,in contrast to the 19th century,‘ almost nice’.From Elizabeth Day’sperspective, the idea of going toGlastonbury was one of‘undiluted horror’, and her use ofwords like ‘horror’, ‘devastation’and ‘terrible natural disaster’ todescribe the scene reinforce thisinitial view. However, thischanges as she realises that theexperience is not as bad as shefeared and language choicesvary accordingly to describingGlastonbury as ‘almost civilised’and, at the end, ‘almost nice’.Dickens, on the other hand ispositive, enthusiastic, and joyfulabout the Fair all the waythrough. Although he describesladies ‘screaming’, completechaos and a dangerous crowd‘swinging you to and fro’, thetone is always one of joy andcelebration and actually positive.Elizabeth Day thoughtGlastonbury was a nightmarewhen she got there because shedescribes the place as ‘a sceneof near devastation’ and that thepeople ‘look like survivors of aterrible disaster’.On the other han
