This book of suggested answers offers extremely detailed suggested marking instructions to use alongside the student book, that highlight where students can gain - or lose - the extra marks that influence grade awards. This book also contains two new sample practice papers, in addition to those set in the student book, to help give students as much practice as possible for this element of the course.
