    Different teachers are saying different things at our school so it's pretty bloody annoying. Those extra 400 words will make a big difference and obviously it's going to be no good handing something in if its over the limit.

    No. There's no allowance at all, so it has to be below or the exact limit from what I've heard. Sorry!

    Edexcel website:

    Word limits
    The maximum word length of the total assignment is 4000 words. While a precise total limit is not attached to its constituent parts, students are advised to devote approximately 2000 words to each part.
    It is the centre’s responsibility to inform students that there is no tolerance on the prescribed word limit. Students are required to include a cumulative word count at the bottom of each page. Teacher-assessors and moderators will discontinue marking once the prescribed word limit is reached.

    I do Early History, so I'm doing Spain with Edexcel, part a on the Spanish Armada and part b on Charles V's abdication if you know about that. I know most of my friends do the china course, so what did you do your part a and b on? Do you have much to cut out??
