    Strange question: is anyone planning to use highlighters during exams?
    Definitely for my English exams but probably not for any others - I will have them in my pencil case though

    That's my first exam, the reason I ask is that many teachers believe we aren't allowed them (although really they don't have a clue) but invigilators never bat an eyelid (because they don't know unless it says on the front of the paper), however when the paper is scanned and sent to the examiners, although you wouldn't be penalised if you weren't meant to use them I'm concerned they may me more inclined to mark harshly...

    I will definitely for English as the texts are separate to the paper anyway so they don't get sent off, but what about other subjects?

    I'll just underline then. We've always been told to use high lighters or underline key word whenever we do past papers.

    Our teacher gave us a paper that had only questions that the majority of the population got wrong and this came up. I didn't know how to figure the percentage unsaturation either but we looked at the mark scheme and it said that unsaturation was 67% so therefore it is 33% saturated fat. This is why it didn't show it was 30% saturated fat.

    I plan to use it for English to see the most important bits. I'm planning to use it for health and social care to highlight the scenarios but I don't know if I'm allowed.

    Been super productive today. Guess it's because exams start in MONDAY!

    Revised RE most of the day as it is my first exam. Looked at the topics
    -Wealth and Poverty
    -Medical Ethics
    -War, Peace and human rights.
    Did a bunch of past paper questions on them and looked at all my weaknesses. Asked my family to listen to me as if it was a story(helps me remember things more!).

    Also did 2 listening French past papers - both of which I achieved A*s. Finally!

    I also revised Data handling, Use of maths by revising the data section in maths and watching bunch of videos on it as well as learning the definitions.

    It is my understanding that you can use highlighters in any exam and do whatever you like to the exam paper as long as nothing is done to barcodes and your answer is written within the lines and in black ink

    That annoys me too!! It's great though, that you can take it and use it to your advantange - there is nothing to stop you still using them as competition
