The company is based in London but can arrange visits to steam train locations anywhere in the world. It organises the travel, reserves the accommodation and offers optional activities. Each group is limited to a maximum of 24 people and is accompanied by a guide provided by Train Travellers.

Sometimes small groups of people book together to go on a tour. Children are welcome if travelling with an adult. At the start of each holiday, Train Travellers provides a driver and limousine to take clients from their homes to the nearest mainline railway station. From there they travel by train to a meeting point where they join the guide and other members of their group. The meeting point for international travel is in London. For journeys within Europe travel from London is then by train. For more distant destinations travel is by air. For tours that stay in Britain, the meeting point could be a suitable railway station outside London. 8 Sample Assessment Materials © Edexcel Limited 2008 Edexcel IGCSE in ICT Activity 1 – Using art/imaging and graphics software DO NOT SPEND TOO LONG ON THIS ACTIVITY Task AG1 Open a suitable Art package.

Edexcel IGCSE in ICT © Edexcel Limited 2008 Sample Assessment Materials 47 48 Sample Assessment Materials © Edexcel Limited 2008 Edexcel IGCSE in ICT General Marking Guidance All candidates must receive the same treatment. Examiners must mark the first candidate in exactly the same way as they mark the last. Mark schemes should be applied positively. Candidates must be rewarded for what they have shown they can do rather than penalised for omissions. Examiners should mark according to the mark scheme not according to their perception of where the grade boundaries may lie.

There is no ceiling on achievement. All marks on the mark scheme should be used appropriately. All the marks on the mark scheme are designed to be awarded. Examiners should always award full marks if deserved, i. e. if the answer matches the mark scheme. Examiners should also be prepared to award zero marks if the candidate’s response is not worthy of credit according to the mark scheme. Where some judgement is required, mark schemes will provide the principles by which marks will be awarded and exemplification may be limited.

When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of the mark scheme to a candidate’s response, the team leader must be consulted. Crossed out work should be marked UNLESS the candidate has replaced it with an alternative response.
