    So for IGCSE (not GCSE) English (0511) my teacher told us to leave a line after completing a paragraph, like a whole line! i honestly think that's a waste of a line and we don't already have enough space that we be skippin lines after each paragraph. Do I think I should? I havent seen CIE mention anything like that although the teacher told me they're going to cut marks for it -_-
    What i always did was add an indent (a two finger space) at the start of the paragraph, isn't that pretty obvious that it's a new paragraph?

    An indent does make it look obvious but at the same time a horrendously massive chunk of text.

    So I certainly understand their point, and if they're going to cut marks if you don't do it I would just follow what they say.
