    Hi, I'm in year 10 and have a german writing controlled assessment coming up in a weeks time. I have just completed writing a draft and it's 620 words long. They say it's supposed to be 200-300 words long so will i get penalised if it's 620 words long? I'm finding it hard to cut it down any further /:

    They cannot technically mark you down for being over, but they will stop marking anything after say 330 words, you are allowed to go over the word count by 10%.
