I was wondering, does it matter if you go over the advised word limit on any of the questions in an GCSE English Language exam as on question 1, it advises you to "write about 250-300 words." Will you be deducted points? Or will they only mark the first 300 words? Thanks in advance.

Not really unless you've exceeded on a large scale and wrote 2 times more than they said. Otherwise I don't think the examiners would spend time counting each word.

Didn't realise there was a word limit. What board?
