DD is struggling to finish all comprehensions questions in time (Godolphin papers). We wondered about the technique of tackling the big mark questions first.
Does anyone know if this technique is advised or conversely frowned upon by independent schools when marking?
The highest mark questions are in the middle of the paper for the consortium comprehension precisely so that students don't run out of time and miss out the question with the highest weighting. As to which they should do first - well, if the child finishes the paper, no one will know, will they? But in truth, no marker is bothered about things like that.
