I drew the decision tree, schema and table (Multimedia) all using pencil, because any mistakes can be corrected immediately.
I better still be allowed to receive marks for correct drawing and working.

i did a quick sketch of all diagrams (tree, schema) in pencil on the left hand side.
fixed anything i had to. and transfered it using pen on the right handside of the paper.

i've heard (from teachers) not to draw anything you want marked in pencil cause it can smudge and errased away throught the "handling" stage.

so ye =/

I used a pencil, after 13 years of schooling they really do expect you to use pencils.

I use a thick 2B pencil, so there's no way it will get errased.

Yeh, but then if you make a mistake, you're screwed.
so true, then it gets all messy, and then markers get the shits and you know what happens when markers get shitty with your work =/ baha

I had to compromise between messy work and not being able to fix mistakes, so I decided to use a 2B mechanical pencil and I was given a dodgy and smudgy rubber. :burn:

The front of the book said USE PENCIL FOR DIAGRAMS.
So I used a pencil for schema and decision tree etc.

Meh, they would be fuckwits of markers if they marked you down for it.

PEN

bcoz

I NO MAKE TEH MEESTAKES

nah just because I haven't owned a lead pencil since I started year 11. Never occurred to me to get one for the exam, seeing as I always end up with motherloads of free time in IPT tests so if I messed up I could just start over I suppose.
