    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently on the BPTC, and have an advocacy exam coming up. Advocacy is my strong point as compared to opinion writing etc, so I really need it to go well. Trouble is, my skeleton argument is already submitted, and looking through it now it's riddled with errors. I should stress that I proof-read and proof-read, I think I over-read it, if anything!

    How I didn't notice the errors I don't know, they're all either typos or just misused wording. I'm really worried about the impact this will have on my overall marks for advocacy, and the course as a whole. Anyone with post-BPTC experience have any idea how badly this will affect me?

    Thanks so much for any help.

    Is this question serious? You are being examined on a subject in which words are the be all and end all. Odd typos will be overlooked most likely if the work is substantively good. But misused words?

    The best you can do is make sure you perform to an outstanding level in the oral exam, and this will ofsett the lesser skeleton mark to some degree . You could also possibly claw back marks by “housekeeping” at the beginning of the assessment and pointing out and correcting material errors in the skeleton without labouring any points too much.
