    I have an upcoming exam but I find myself overwriting the word count 350-450 words. I'm worried. Will they deduct marks for overwriting or is it compulsory to stay within the word count range?

    They will mark up to the limit. They won't bother with the rest. So in other words u would have wasted time

    One really good point to look up would be figurative language which includes things such as similes, metaphors, onomatopoeia, hyperboles etc. which is used alot in descriptive and narrative language. Also would be important to look up structures of different text types such as reports, letters, accounts, journals because they appear often in directed writing.

    Hope that has helped. Just taken my First Language English papers so feel free to ask any questions (:
