    Do you think I might lose marks because the examiner and/or my teacher might find the violent scenes inappropriate?

    So I recently finished my English coursework, and I know I went WAY over the word limit (though teachers assured that they wouldn't check, as it wasn't a limit, as such), and I'm kind of worrying that it may be too long. (The story is 7 sides of A4)

    I'm also worried that they might find the scenes of torture and cruelty (the best sensory description in the story) too violent and/or sadistic, yet the message I wanted to show is of how someone can fall so low after suffering from torture and mental illness. I just hope they understand that the violence isn't uncalled for.

    What do you think? Do you think I might lose marks because the examiner and/or my teacher might find the violence inappropriate?
    This really depends how it was written. If it is violence that doesn't serve a purpose in the story then that would be completely different to relevant violence. But if it's justified and actually part of the story then it won't be found inappropriate.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
