    Ok peeps! Heres a question for you!
    For each part of paper 2 of the AQA English Language GCSE paper you are advised to write 2 sides of A4. I choose the decribe question and just couldn't think what to write. I ran out of time and only wrote a page and around 5 lines. My handwriting is relatively small though (about 8 words per line).

    How badly would not writing enough effect my grade? The content mark for the exam is out of 18, so considering this how many marks would be deducted due to this? Please let me know what you think!

    Yeah I know what you are saying, but you could hardly go into an exam, write a paragraph of quality and get a decent grade could you? There must be a limit where they start deducting points. I just wondered if anyone knew how much of an effect it is going to have on my final grade.

    Well, you have done the exam now. If you feel like you made a fair number of valid points you'll be fine. Just think ahead to the next exams as there's nothing you can do about it
