Not necessarily. Do you write on every second line? Because I do. I have small handwriting and I wrote 6 pages. The reason being that the topic was so broad it would be impossible to do it justice with 300 words. To write "breadth and depth" without giving details, examples and a variety of points in a couple of pages? anyway our teacher always says to write a bit over the limit. All the past responses have been over the limit too. In a 40 min english essay you can write how many pages? 40 mins is a lot of time and I had about 50 to do this essay.MarsBarz said:Don't worry about it. If you did over 3 pages you did way too much. In fact read the examiner's comments next to the past papers on BOS. They always say that you're wasting your time by writing over the given limit.
Okay fair enough. I'm just saying if you did write over the limit, why is that such a bad thing? It's not an advantage, however for those people who actually did study, there are so many things you could say for that question (b). If you chose the first one then obviously your answer will be more concise and to the point because the topic is fairly specific. That's just the nature of the question.MarsBarz said:Quality over quantity . I didn't study for French extension at all anyway. With maths extension tomorrow (today lol), I haven't had the time to study for it. My teacher wasn't too good this year either and we haven't even had that many lessons. But in the end I think I did alright.
Sorry!gravity said:ok quite clearly he was trying to comfort me and u ruined it
Also the difference between this and english is that it shows you actually know more about the text than someone else, rather than mere opinion.
