How you are marked

The maximum score for each question is 100%. For every hint used, your percentage score is reduced by the ratio of that letter to the total letters required in the answer. For example, if the total number of letters within the gaps is 50 across the whole response, then each letter is worth 2 percentage points. Each hint will therefore reduce your score by 2 percentage points.
