In most subjects that i do, eg accounting, english, phyiscs, there is a clear cut mark allocation for theory/written responses. A ranking if you will, which details what type of answers get what marks.
I am yet to find the media mark allocation. In Media all questions are written, and there are roughly 65mrks for 2hrs writing time. I find little correlation between the amount of space provided to answer questions, and the mark allocated to the question. Some 3 mrk questions will have 5-6 lines for an answer, whereas a 5 mrk question may have a whole page.
I could probably fill in all allocated writing spaces, but not in the time provided. Are they looking for quality or quantity? How do i know how much to write to earn x no. of marks?
