2009 KS3 Mathematics test mark scheme: Paper 1IntroductionIntroductionThis booklet contains the mark scheme for paper 1 at all tiers. The paper 2 mark schemeis printed in a separate booklet. Questions have been given names so that each one hasa unique identifier irrespective of tier.The structure of the mark schemesThe marking information for each question is set out in the form of tables, which start onpage 10 of this booklet. The columns on the left-hand side of each table provide a quickreference to the tier, question number, question part and the total number of marksavailable for that question part.The ‘Correct response’ column usually includes two types of information:a statement of the requirements for the award of each mark, with an indication of whether credit can be given for correct working, and whether the marks areindependent or cumulativeexamples of some different types of correct response, including the most common.The ‘Additional guidance’ column indicates alternative acceptable responses, andprovides details of specific types of response that are unacceptable. Other guidance,such as when ‘follow-through’ is allowed, is provided as necessary.Questions with a Using and applying mathematics (UAM) element are identified in themark scheme by the symbol U1 . The number indicates the significance of using andapplying mathematics in answering the question. The U number can be any wholenumber from 1 to the number of marks in the question.For graphical and diagrammatic responses, including those in which judgements onaccuracy are required, marking overlays have been provided as the centre pages of thisbooklet.The 2009 key stage 3 mathematics tests and mark schemes were developed bythe Test Development Team at Pearson Research and Assessment.2

2009 KS3 Mathematics test mark scheme: Paper 1General guidanceGeneral guidanceUsing the mark schemesAnswers that are numerically equivalent or algebraically equivalent are acceptable unlessthe mark scheme states otherwise.In order to ensure consistency of marking, the most frequent procedural queries arelisted on the following two pages with the prescribed correct action. This is followed byfurther guidance relating specifically to the marking of questions that involve money,negative numbers, time, measures, coordinates, probability or algebra. Unless otherwisespecified in the mark scheme, markers should apply the following guidelines in all cases.Recording marks awarded on the test paperAll questions, even those not attempted by the pupil, should be marked, with a1 or a 0 entered in each marking space. Where 2m can be split into 1m gainedand 1m lost, with no explicit order, then this will be recorded by the marker as 10The total marks awarded for a double page should be written in the box at the bottomof the right-hand page, and the total number of marks obtained on the paper should berecorded on the front of the test paper.A total of 120 marks is available in each of tiers 3–5, 4–6, 5–7 and 6–8.Awarding levelsThe sum of the marks gained on paper 1, paper 2 and the mental mathematicspaper determines the level awarded. Level threshold tables, which show themark ranges for the award of different levels, will be available on the NAAwebsite www.naa.org.uk/tests from April 2009.3

2009 KS3 Mathematics test mark scheme: Paper 1What if Marking procedureThe pupil’s response isnumerically or algebraicallyequivalent to the answer inthe mark scheme.Markers should award the mark unless the mark scheme states otherwise.The pupil’s response doesnot match closely any of theexamples given.Markers should use their judgement in deciding whether the response correspondswith the statement of the requirements given in the ‘Correct response’ column.Refer also to the ‘Additional guidance’.The pupil has respondedin a non-standard way.Calculations, formulae and written responses do not have to be set out in anyparticular format. Pupils may provide evidence in any form as long as its meaningcan be understood. Diagrams, symbols or words are acceptable for explanationsor for indicating a response. Any correct method of setting out working, howeveridiosyncratic, should be accepted. Provided there is no ambiguity, condone thecontinental practice of using a comma for a decimal point.There appears to be amisreading affectingthe working.This is when the pupil misreads the information given in the question and usesdifferent information without altering the original intention or difficulty level of thequestion. For each misread that occurs, deduct one mark only.No answer is given in theexpected place, but thecorrect answer is givenelsewhere.Where a pupil has shown understanding of the question, the mark(s) should begiven. In particular, where a word or number response is expected, a pupil maymeet the requirement by annotating a graph or labelling a diagram elsewhere inthe question.The final answer is wrong,but the correct answer isshown in the working.Where appropriate, detailed guidance will be given in the mark scheme and mustbe adhered to. If no guidance is given, markers will need to examine each caseto decide whether:The pupil’s answer iscorrect but the wrongworking is shown.4General guidance the incorrect answer is due to a transcription errorIf so, award the mark. in questions not testing accuracy, the correctanswer has been given but then rounded ortruncatedIf so, award the mark. the pupil has continued to give redundant extraworking which does not contradict work already doneIf so, award the mark. the pupil has continued, in the same part of thequestion, to give redundant extra working whichdoes contradict work already done.If so, do not awardthe mark. Where aquestion part carriesmore than one mark,only the final markshould be withheld.A correct response should always be marked as correct unless the mark schemestates otherwise.

2009 KS3 Mathematics test mark scheme: Paper 1What if General guidanceMarking procedureThe pupil has madea conceptual error.In some questions, a method mark is available provided the pupil has made acomputational, rather than conceptual, error. A computational error is a ‘slip’ suchas writing 4 6 18 in an otherwise correct long multiplication. A conceptual erroris a more serious misunderstanding of the relevant mathematics; when such an erroris seen, no method marks may be awarded. Examples of conceptual errors are: misunderstanding of place value, such as multiplying by 2 rather than 20 whencalculating 35 27 subtracting the smaller value from the larger in calculations such as 45 – 26 togive the answer 21 incorrect signs when working with negative numbers.The correct response hasbeen crossed or rubbed outand not replaced.Any legible crossed or rubbed out work that has not been replaced should bemarked according to the mark scheme. If the work is replaced, then crossed orrubbed out work should not be considered.More than oneanswer is given.If all answers given are correct (or a range of answers is given, all of which arecorrect), the mark should be awarded unless prohibited by the mark scheme.If both correct and incorrect responses are given, no mark should be awarded.The pupil’s answercorrectly followsthrough from earlierincorrect work.Follow-through marks may be awarded only when specifically stated in the markscheme, but should not be allowed if the difficulty level of the question has beenlowered. Either the correct response or an acceptable follow-through responseshould be marked as correct.The answer is correctbut, in a later part of thequestion, the pupil hascontradicted this response.A mark given for one part should not be disallowed for working or answers given ina different part, unless the mark scheme specifically states otherwise.The pupil’s accuracy ismarginal according to theoverlay provided.Overlays can never be 100% accurate. However, provided the answer is within ortouches the boundaries given, the mark(s) should be awarded.The pupil has drawn lineswhich do not meet at thecorrect point.Markers should interpret the phrase ‘lines not accurate’ to mean meeting within oron a circle of radius 2mm with centre at the correct point.within the circleacceptedon the circleacceptedoutside the circlenot accepted5

Where aquestion part carries more than onemark, only the final mark should bewithheld.70100for example:0.7! Take care!
