If more information than marks allocated is given
Stop marking when maximum marks is reached and put a wavy line and ‘max' in the right hand margin. If, for example, three reasons are required and five are given
Mark the first three irrespective of whether all or some are correct/incorrect. If whole process is given when only part of it is required
Read all and credit relevant part. If comparisons are asked for and descriptions are given
Accept if differences / similarities are clear. If tabulation is required but paragraphs are given
Candidates will lose marks for not tabulating. If diagrams are given with annotations when descriptions are required
Candidates will lose marks If flow charts are given instead of descriptions
Candidates will lose marks. If sequence is muddled and links do not make sense
Where sequence and links are correct, credit. Where sequence and links is
incorrect, do not credit. If sequence and links becomes correct again, resume
Non-recognized abbreviations
Accept if first defined in answer. If not defined, do not credit the unrecognized
abbreviation but credit the rest of answer if correct.
Wrong numbering
If answer fits into the correct sequence of questions but the wrong number is
given, it is acceptable.
If language used changes the intended meaning
Spelling errors
If recognizable accept provided it does not mean something else in Life
Sciences or if it is out of context.
If common names given in terminology
Accept provided it was accepted at the national memo discussion meeting. Copyright reserved Please turn over Life Sciences/P2 (Version 1) (Full-time) DBE/November 2011 NSC – Memorandum If only letter is asked for and only name is given (and vice versa)

Code-switching of official languages (terms and concepts)
A single word or two that appears in any official language other than the

should be credited, if it is correct. A marker that is proficient in the relevant
official language should be consulted. This is applicable to all official languages.
No changes must be made to the marking memoranda without consulting the Provincial Internal Moderator who in turn will consult with the national Internal Moderator (and the External Moderators where necessary) Only memoranda bearing the signatures of the National Internal Moderator and the UMALUSI moderators and distributed by the national Department of Basic Education via the provinces must be used during training and during the marking period.
