    This is from OCR...I don't what exam board you're doing though...What resources are candidates allowed for the Final Task?
    Writing Notes Form (Candidates). This is written during the preparation stage and can have a maximum of 5 bullet points with no more than 8 words per point [40 words max] which can include conjugated verbs.

    • Writing Information Form (Teachers). This gives suggestions of information to include.

    • A bilingual dictionary

    OCR wrote: What is the maximum word limit for the Writing Controlled Assessment unit?

    Candidates aiming at grades G – D should produce between 100 – 175 words per task..

    Candidates aiming at grades C – A* should produce between 200 – 300 words per task .

    Is there a minimum / maximum word count?
    No, but if candidates write too little, they tend to self-penalise, as there would not be enough content in their writing to gain marks in the higher bands for Communication.



    Although there is no maximum, candidates are strongly encouraged to keep within the recommended word ranges, as overlong work can also become self-penalising.

    Yes you can.

    Between 250-300 is A* level.

    If you go over 300 and they actually count, you lose marks for not conveying message clearly.
