Latest exam papers with examiners' comments
by Janet Prescott - Tuesday, 30 May 2017, 10:02 AM

The February 2017 papers for level 3 have now been released with the examiner feedback, so these have been added to your classroom revision areas; level 2 were released a couple of weeks ago and are already uploaded.

Remember, the examiners' comments are useful to help you to see what their intentions were, if you find RHS questions confusing or ambiguously worded; but as their feedback has to cover a wide range of answers which were eventually agreed to be acceptable, you may find that it looks as if you are expected to write a much broader or more detailed answer than the allocated marks suggest.

Think of these as 110 - 120% of the answer; anything over 70% would be getting you a commendation!

Apologies - Cornelia's pointed out that  not all the level 3 papers have been updated with the comments, only Plant Growth and Unit 1 of Garden Planning.  I will chase up on Monday and try to find out why they aren't available with the others!
