Example Candidate Response

ECR booklets provide illustrative examples of candidate work at different levels of performance. Each answer is annotated with examiner comments on the awarded mark and any mistakes the candidate has made. The examiner explains how the candidate could have improved their answer, and lists common mistakes made in this question across all candidates who sat the exam. You can use the existing booklets to demonstrate the examination standard but note that these do not reflect the content changes in the 2020 syllabus. Revised booklets will be available in 2021.
