    More than enough! I wrote the exact same amount and I got 250 words or a bit less I think. My handwriting is small so depends on your handwriting!

    Mine is pretty normal sized, neither big nor small, but I'm sure I'll be fine I didn't even see that it must be between 200-300 words, all the past papers I've done usually says "around 200-300" but even if I went under it's only 5 marks lost

    Thanks but the *******s have entered me for foundation tier (highest is a grade C).
    I'll complain, not sure if it's too late.

    you've got to be kidding me !! im probably gonna get a C knowing that and english is my best subject that gives me no hope for my other exams !! hope you get your A at least
    English is my worst subject and having that confidence was actually the biggest achievement since I've been struggling with english my whole life hahaha! Oh well. What's the point of worrying? The exams done and we can't do anything about it hahaa!

    I don't think u'd lose 5 marks if it was under the word count. I think you'd lose more if you went over since its a summary!

    Wrote all the same points (that DamnDaniel2 put up) apart from 3 - thought this was too closely related to the point about '30% of crops' as both talked about fruit etc.

    Hahaha yh I guessed a few because I didn't know which one to choose. I was going to choose the CCD thing but didn't lol.
    For the loss of healthy food I also developed it by saying that the health of the world will regress etc is that ok? Or will they mark me down for developing?
    I also wrote without bees we wouldn't have advanced medicines today as honey has been used in medicines since the egyptian times?

    I wasn't able to count how many words I wrote for each question, but from what I could tell while looking at it, all of my answers seemed to be over the word limit...
    I was pretty content with the quality of my answers though.
    Do you think I'd get a lot of marks off for writing too much?! I'm so worried now haha
