I wouldn't say "Memorise" mark Schemes, but look at them of course. Patterns emerge from subjects - I found this the case in science. The mark schemes give you an indication about HOW to answer the question, and what should be included. One shouldn't rely just on it - learn, test yourself and check with the mark scheme!

iwhy should you make a mark scheme?

if you want one go onto the awarding board and memorise their mark scheme they have online.

I think it is not useful to memories the mark scheme because the questions may not appear. It depends on the subjects of the mark scheme you are looking at. For example, in Maths and Science you can memorise the mark scheme because in my experience there was a lot repeating questions in couple of the past papers.

Its good for certain subjects like Biology and Chemistry but don't depend on this method!

 its useful to memorise the mark scheme but it depends on what subjects you do, its good to look at them because then you know what exactly you get the marks on  so you can get to the point instead of going off the point ,like in psychology describe and evaluate questions are good to memorise because the mark scheme shows possible answers for many different studies .you also write more like a mark scheme saving time in the actual exam but the most important thing is you must make your own notes otherwise there's no point

to be honest if you look at the past mark schemes they are kind of the same. i not saying learn the scheme by heart but learn the topics in dept in the markscheme. Because most of the questions are very similar

although they change the questions, the context remains the same so if you practice questions, it will give you a qestion on a topic say "how enzymes work" and you do it, the mark scheme will say what its looking for and if you ever get a qestion on that topic then you will have an idea of what to write, so practice questions and look at the mark scheme to revise, so if you get a similar question, the mark scheme for that particular question will be similar to previous questions.

first revise all your notes, then memorise the markscheme. That way if an unfamilar question comes up you can resort to your knowledge and if the same question comes up you can refer to the markscheme.

what i believe is to do exam papers so get a feel of how the questions are composed, from there on this would improve your knoledge of understanding making it easier to pass

its good because ive seen questions that have been repeated over the years so if you have an idea as to what the mark scheme is looking for then its alll good but obvs its not a long term thing, its just a good thing to do on top of revising normally..
