    Well in my GCSE history exam... 100 mins I wrote 12 pages.

    (40/100)*12=4.8

    I think I do around 320 words per page.

    4.8*320=1536. About 1500 then approximately.

    EDIT: Didn't see this was in Law, very different exam styles.. oh well, my 2 cents anyway.

    In a 35 minute English GCSE exam I can write around 3 pages, not sure how many words it is though.

    Depends, really.

    If I've got the research and all that done, I'm sure I could write more than 2000.

    Without research...probably about 100.

    If I know what I'm doing then around 5-6 pages so up to 1800 words?

    But judging by my exam performance the other day.....Not many :|

    In an exam? No more than 1200 words. Generally more about 1000.
