Then, they grade a second essay, running it through the same process and grading model they had created for the first essay, recalibrating any necessary point adjustments. Eventually they find a model answer and grading system that all the graders can use. Although, grading may seem subjective for each grader, believe it or not, if fifteen graders grade the same exam using this calibrated point system, each grader will typically fall within five points of each other. This is to ensure fairness, equality, and eliminate personal subjectivity amongst anyone grading the exams. Any grader who’s scores are consistently more than five points off from all the other graders is typically removed.

What is Type 1 - Diabetes?
Diabetes can be categorised into 2 types:
Type 1 – Diabetes: Although it is much less common than Type 2 – Diabetes, Type 1 – Diabetes still affects over 2 million people in the UK alone.
We get glucose (sugar) from food. It gives us energy and helps our cells to function properly. Type 1 – Diabetes develops when there is an excessive amount of glucose in the blood (and your body stops making a pancreatic generated hormone called insulin which keeps your blood glucose levels under control). Too much glucose can damage your blood cells over time, make you feel ill, and lead to extremely serious medical problems.
Type 1 – Diabetes generally occurs in children of young adults.
Type 2 – Diabetes: Type 2 – Diabetes is different because it occurs in people over 40 years of age and develops gradually over time. Cells resist (or reject) the sufficient amounts of insulin the pancreas creates, and so therefore fail to be stimulated by it. This has knock-on effect which causes the insulin generating cells in the pancreas to become exhausted and stop functioning properly.
This article will focus upon Type 1 – Diabetes and seek to explain the impact it has on people’s lives.
Symptoms of Type 1 - Diabetes include:
A persistent, raging thirst
A need to pass urine frequently
Problems with vision (images can appear blurred)
Itchiness and irritation around the penis or vagina
Regular bouts of thrush
As we have seen, Type 1 – Diabetes develops when your body stops producing sufficient amounts of insulin to keep your blood glucose levels under control. A lack of insulin means that the glucose is not dispersed naturally and evenly to into your cells through your bloodstream.
It is not known why the body fails to produce enough insulin in some people but does in others, although one theory suggests that is may be due to a problem with the immune system – possibly and autoimmune reaction.
Other suggested causes of Type 1 - Diabetes include:
Viral or bacterial infection
Exposure to cow’s milk at a very young age (. during infancy)
Environmental problems, such as exposure to dangerous chemical toxins in some foods
Also, some people may have a genetic predisposition to developing Type 1 –...
