Mark Scheme

Mark schemes are prepared by the Principal Examiner and considered, together with the relevant questions, by a panel of subject teachers. This mark scheme includes any amendments made at the standardisation events which all examiners participate in and is the scheme which was used by them in this examination. The standardisation process ensures that the mark scheme covers the candidates’ responses to questions and that every examiner understands and applies it in the same correct way. As preparation for standardisation each examiner analyses a number of candidates’ scripts: alternative answers not already covered by the mark scheme are discussed and legislated for. If, after the standardisation process, examiners encounter unusual answers which have not been raised they are required to refer these to the Principal Examiner. It must be stressed that a mark scheme is a working document, in many cases further developed and expanded on the basis of candidates’ reactions to a particular paper. Assumptions about future mark schemes on the basis of one year’s document should be avoided; whilst the guiding principles of assessment remain constant, details will change, depending on the content of a particular examination paper.

Past Injustice

...Past Injustices To forge a just society would involve being able to believe in peace within our world. To be human is to forgive those who have wronged us or those who share different beliefs. We are a country who fights for human rights all over the planet. We are a people who see torture and genocide as intolerable. We are one of five countries that still administer the death penalty. Have we learned nothing from the past? "We are witness to human suffering that is caused by violence being treated with violence. The guilty and innocent on death row awaiting their fate is a mental picture that does not seem possible in this century. Killing is never justified! Countless of innocent men are placed in death row with no evidence of wrongdoing and sometimes with clear and unmistakable evidence of innocence. Many groups have committed crimes against other people they viewed as different which meant they must be dangerous and a threat. I know this discussion asked for past injustices and affirmative action as a form of contrition and compensation. I personally think affirmative action is not the answer to past injustices which are still common in every human society around the globe. Just watch the evening news! We will see that the same old inhuman and evil acts against humanity are insidiously creeping back in different parts of the world, even in our own backyard, America! While we may not be directly responsible for past criminal and heinous crimes but we all should......

The Past

...2 1. Hvad er bipolariteten? Og hvilken økonomisk opdeling er der tale om? USA blev centrum i en højtindustrialiseret kapitalistisk verden. 2. Hvorfor blev USA dominerende de første år efter 2. verdenskrig? Og hvad er Bretton Woods-konferencen? Marshall hjælpen. 40 stater skrev under på en traktat om internationalt valutasystem. 3. Hvad er IMF? Og hvilken funktion skulle den have? (International Monetary fund) hvert land skulle betale et beløb af deres valuta og guld for så at måtte trække på deres reserver og altså få fremmed valuta til rådighed. 4. Hvad er henholdsvis Marshall-hjælpen, OEEC, OECD og GATT? Marshall hjælpen er den hjælpepakke USA gav til de vest europæiske lande. OEEC (organizationen for European Economic Cooperation) som dels organiserede fordelingen af Marshall planen. OECD er en opgradering af OEEC, denne organisation har samme effekt som OEEC, bare at Japan, Canada og USA er kommet med i aftalen. GATT (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade) var til formål at sænke toldmurerne. 5. Hvordan er Koreakrigen fra 1950 med til at forbedre økonomien i USA? De var nød til at producere og de brugte 108 millarder dollers otte gang så meget som marshall hjælpen. 6. Hvordan passer udviklingen i den vestlige verden på udviklingen i DK? Giv eksempler fra DK.

Past Life

...Reminiscing the Past... Reminiscing the past...well its nice to rekindle some past experiences especially if those were really interesting and fun. I had a great night yesterday because I was able to visit my former dormitory in UP Diliman. When I was still studying in the university, I stayed in an old building, the NARRA Residence Hall. It's an exclusive dormitory for male students of UP Diliman. Anyways, I was with Leo yesterday and he told me that he will go to UP Diliman to bring something for Kiko. Because of not having been there for a long time, I decided to join him and went there from Las Pinas. It was really a tiring ride from the almost southernmost part of Manila to the northernmost part of the region. Leo and I were able to get a cab from Las Pinas and it cost me a lot for the fare... Well, we arrived in UP Diliman at around 8:30 in the evening. We waited for Kiko at Philcoa Jollibee Branch. Just after 15 minutes, I guess, we saw Kiko outside waiving at us with Anton. I felt happy seeing them again after a long time. They told me that Narra is having their OPEN HOUSE that night. Leo told me that he informed me about it but I cant really remember him telling me that. Anyways, I felt a bit bad because I didnt bring my camera with me...and I was only holding my very cheap Nokia 1110i and left my phone camera in my condo. So it was a little frustrating though...I kept on blaming Leo and Leo kept on telling me that he infomed me about it. I guess it was my fault.....

Past becoming closer and closer. Now world is called the global village. By taking the advancement of technology people are updating themselves day to day. Now people would like to use credit card to make global transaction rather than carrying cash amount. In such case bank has brought dynamic change in the present world.

And some newly issued banks are coming to enhance this competition. To measure the performance of bank, it is mandatory to measure the satisfaction level of customers. Because today market is customer oriented. Some Policymaker thinks that Customer satisfaction is an important indicator of national economic health.

...candidates achieved Grades I – III in 2008 compared with 47 per cent in 2007. This improvement was also reflected in the performance in both profiles, Profile 1, Knowledge and Comprehension, and Profile 2, Use of Knowledge. While performance on Paper 01, the Multiple Choice paper, declined slightly, analysis of the equating items reveals that except for two items, the profiles are parallel and at the same level in 2008 and in 2006 (the year with which the items were equated). Candidate performance on Paper 02 improved significantly. This may be attributed to at least two factors: 1. This is the third sitting of the January examinations. In addition, there have also been three sittings of the June examinations. This means that a number of past papers are available which help students in their preparation for the examination. The questions were structured such that they were able to better elicit from the candidates the required answer. Also, more attention was paid to the social aspects of the syllabus, with an attempt to integrate the social with the human biology. DETAILED COMMENTS Paper 01 Candidate performance on this paper declined slightly in 2008 over 2007. Candidates experienced difficulties with the following topics: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

The Troubled Past

...The Troubled Past of U.S. African Americans Annotated Bibliography Jennette M. Bird HIS:204 American History 1865-Present Instructor Bruce Carruthers January 13th, 2014 The Troubled Past of U.S. African Americans As we move into the new century, our reliance on the past has never been more apparent to how we should proceed in the future. Our past experiences, in some respects, are still problems in the present. Throughout history, African Americans have struggled with equality. One question that still remains is: How can we (Americans) move forward while incorporating past experiences to overcome this ever pressing issue that has plagued the U.S. for so long? The answers might very well be a combination of understanding our past, while educating and changing the mentality of our nation. In this paper, I will focus on the racial discrimination and segregation the African American population suffered from, and fought to abolish throughout our history to the present day. I will cover events dating back to 1865, such as the “Black Codes”, and the “Colfax Massacre”, leading into events such as the Chicago Race Riots, to more current events that dated around the mid to late 1900’s such as the “Harlem Renaissance”, “The Freedom Flyers”, otherwise known as the Tuskegee Airmen of the 1940’s, and the “Civil Rights Act”. The chain of events that took place that helped shape the society that we live in today, was not always pleasant. Throughout the years......

Recapturing the Past

...“Recapturing the Past” Time is complex; once it has passed, it is lost forever. It is human nature to regret that which is lost, therefore, one feels the need to recreate the past and is a common theme in everyday life. These attempts at trying to repeat the past, however, are usually in vain. The novel “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a great example of this, as the plot focuses on the concept of recapturing the past. The plot of this story revolves around the growth and press of this concept and is told relative to the main character in the story, Jay Gatsby. Fitzgerald’s usage of this character effectively conveys this idea throughout the novel. The story about how and why Gatsby is unsuccessful in recapturing his past, how his actions hurt himself and others around him and how he ultimately fails while achieving nothing. Throughout the story, we learn that Jay Gatsby is a man who depends and dwells upon his past to reach his dream. Through the narrator, Nick Carraway, we can see that Gatsby’s bad habit of holding on the past does not help him get anywhere with his goal. He believes that the past could be repeated, “'Can't repeat the past?' he cried incredulously. ‘Why of course you can!'” (Fitzgerald, 85). This shows Gatsby’s inability to move on from the past. This obsession with the past inspires Gatsby to do everything he does in order to win back Daisy. He gets into the business of bootleg alcohol selling. To get Daisy’s attention, he throws lavish......

Mirrors the Past

...own; also, they made us very distant to our own culture and tradition, even singing our national anthem was restrained. As a result, we have always been imported-minded. We just accepted how we were divided and ruled by the Americans. The elites, illustrados, and principalia during Spanish era were given different positions in the government that is why they had the opportunity to get the support and sympathy of Filipinos. Filipinos are not unified; we do not perceive what we suppose to perceive, we just normalize the fact that we are divided and ruled due to rhetoric and deceiving benefits/promises as if we accept as it was (let it be) even if it is worthless to us in the very beginning. Our character now is mirrored to what we are in the past....

...status. Once an aneurysm ruptures, blood accumulates between the brain and the subarachnoid space (a thin wall surrounding the brain), thus resulting in a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). As blood collects in this space, it compresses and damages the surrounding brain tissue. The tissue injury Causes the surrounding blood vessels to be susceptible to vasospasm. Vasospasm is an abnormal constriction of the blood vessels of the brain, which can result in additional tissue damage through diminished blood flow to the brain. The combined effect of bleeding and vasospasm can result in serious neurologic impairment or even death. Diagnosis A thorough neurologic exam is performed to assess mental status and determine specific deficits. In the past, examination of the cerebrospinal fluid provided evidence of bleeding in the subarachnoid space. Today, 3-dimensional spiral CT angiography or magnetic resonnance angiography (MRA) of the brain are the standard tests used to diagnose cerebral aneurysms. Video x-rays of blood vessels using injected dye (Cerebral Angiography) provides even more detailed images of the blood vessels in the brain, often visualizing the exact location of the aneurysm. Treatment Cerebral aneurysms, once ruptured require urgent medical attention. The goal of treating patients suffering from rupture of a cerebral aneurysm is to control the immediate symptoms and prevent further bleeding. Upon arrival to the hospital, a patient's vital signs, such as......

Getting Past No

...William Ury stated, “ Negotiation is the pre-eminent form of decision-making in personal and professional life.” Negotiations happen consistently through our daily routines. Most people make them without even realizing it. In some way, shape or form, negotiation takes place in most of the decisions we make. The book, Getting Past No: Negotiating in Difficult Situations, by William Ury, presents many points, ideologies and a framework of preparation to negotiate with confidence and manipulate tough negotiations from conflicting arguments to joint problem solving. A few of Ury’s teachings, from the book, relate to personal approaches I have learned throughout my life, while the rest can be applied in my daily interactions at work and in my personal life. One of the key ingredients to an effective negotiation is preparation. Through my job, I have been introduced to the Lean Six Sigma process. As I first started reading Ury’s book, the first connection I made with the Lean Six Sigma training was not to fix yourself on a single solution or your original position. One of the practices taught in this training was using the DMAIC process to analyze daily processes and find ways of improvement. The DMAIC process lays out the necessary steps to improve a process, design or problem. These steps are to define, measure, analyze, improve and control. Much like Ury’s teachings, during the define phase it is encouraged to throw out as many ideas possible for alleviating a......

We have to discuss the methods of inquiry and how they are used in criminal investigations, then the steps to reconstruct a case and how we illustrate the concepts through a hearsay case, then understanding the fundamentals are identified witness, offenders, connecting evidence from the scene. A method of inquiry must be based on the assembly of the obvious, experimental, and measureable evidence subject to specific value of reasoning.

You will read how my family and life experiences shaped me into the person I am today. I grew up in a small town called Louisburg. Louisburg’s population is about 5,000. Also the town is north of Raleigh, North Carolina. I have a lot of family in this town. My parents live here. I’ve lived in Louisburg almost my whole life. I’m now 34 and I got a birthday coming up on Sunday the 4th of September. I now stay in Raleigh, North Carolina. Growing up in Louisburg was a blessing for me because my parents always supported me in what ever I wanted to do in life. My mom was more strict than my dad. You would think that my dad would’ve been the strict one because he is a man, and plus I’m his little girl. Just the opposite, I could get away with things with dad more easily than with my mom. Especially growing up, mother always wanted to know who I would be talking to on the phone, who I was going to be hanging out with. My mom was an old fashioned woman. She had to meet all my friends including my boyfriends, she would call all my friends parents to see if the story I had told her was accurate or not, if the story didn’t sound right I didn’t go out anywhere I had to stay home. My dad on the other hand was a different story., I was......
