Hi everyone,

I recently wrote an english essay (1200 words) that included a lot of quotes. I always thought that quotes were not included in the final word count but have since discovered that they are (here in Australia at least) So the word count I gave was in fact wrong. My teacher did't pick up on it and gave me an A+ thankfully but a friend told me that if it is sent to moderation at the end of the year, they may have a machine that counts the words (it is a hard, not electronic, copy.)

Does anybody know if this is true and if I should be worried. (I had nearly 200 extra words of quotes, bringing my essay to about 1400.)

Thanks very much.

Hi,
I have a habit of going over word count and I have been told by teachers that it won't affect myself, so I wouldn't worry if I were you
