Practice Paper Set 3 - Marking Support

We know how important getting the right mark is for you and your students. To help you mark these papers consistently and reliably we are providing some free marking support resources.

Webinar – mark your mocks like an AQA examiner

Watch our on-demand training webinar hosted by our Head of Curriculum – Maths, Andrew Taylor. During the 45-minute session, Andrew explores:

  • the marking principles that AQA examiners apply when marking your students’ exams
  • the different types of questions and marks in our papers
  • real examples from practice paper set 3 that your students have been sitting this term.
Our training is free and on-demand, so you can come back to it at a time convenient to you. Or why not use it as part of an INSET day for your maths department?

Marked exemplar responses and examiner commentaries

These resources are designed to help you understand the marking principles used in live examinations and apply them to these papers by allowing you to:

  • consider a selection of questions and answers from practice paper set 3 and how you would mark them
  • see how they were marked by one of our senior examiners and their justification for doing so.
This process is similar to the one undertaken by examiners for live examinations and is intended to serve as standardisation for these mocks, giving some confidence that marking data will be reliable and consistent.
