Marking in 2018

Notice board for errors and corrections in the Advanced solutions

  • Problem 9 (Pame): In question 9.2 (Central Pame), 60 is ranhũʔ lien (not: ranhũʔ lie)
    • Not noticed till Sun 18 Feb. If you can take account of this correction, please do. Unfortunately, it won’t affect many scripts because not many candidates offered solutions for Problem 9.
  • Problem 7: For question 7.1.2, the answer should be Ingvar er dóttursonur Einars instead of systursonur.
    • Sat Feb 10 (13.10) This has now been corrected in the solution file for markers.
