Hello and welcome to Pearson’s Functional Skills blog for July 2021. This month Pearson has been getting practitioners to ask questions of our Chairs of Maths Functional Skills, the chief examiners, if you will.
If a learner gets a calculation slightly wrong but correctly interprets their answer, can they have the decision mark? E.g. The question asks is £100 enough? The correct answer is £98, so should be yes. Their answer £101, and they say no.
