Grading practise

Grading practise

This section includes examples of exam scripts completed by current and graduating IB economics students.  The section also includes the mark scheme.  When grading the scripts read the whole response and then select the mark band which most correctly fits the appropriate grade. 

Good luck and I hope that you enjoy the practise.  I will add more completed scripts to the site when they become available.

I will release more practise papers as soon as they become available.
