DD has been sitting some properly timed past papers and also going through some bond books. My question is regarding some of the questions where there is more than one possible answer, i give this simple example:
Write six synonyms of the word 'said'?
The answers given were cried, exclaimed, laughed, replied, shouted, thought (at the top of the answer sheet it says possible answers to most of these questions are given in italics).
DD put asked, explained, told, informed, wondered, chanted.
I googled synonyms of said and 5 of her 6 were right (not chanted). Now if this type of question comes up will the marker have a more extensive list for the answers of will just 6 answers be on their sheet and if it's not one of those they don't get a mark.
I'm really worried that they could be penalised in this way.
