    For the summary question (Question 3), am I allowed to go over 15 bullet points?

    For example if I cannot decide between two points and which is more important, am I allowed to put both? (if I'm already on my 15th point, can I go on to do a 16th point or more?).

    P.S. Good luck everybody!

    My English teacher advises my class to go over 15 points in case one of the first 15 points is wrong or invalid for a mark, in doing so, you can make sure you may have all the points, or a considerable amount for the marks.

    Good luck on your exams too!

    Yeah I was thinking that would massively increase my chances of getting the right marks!

    I was just worried that I would get marked down for going over.

    Good luck

    to clear the confusion - for part a ONLY write 15 points as there are only 15 lines provided for you
    for part b where you need to write your points in continuous prose you can write as many points as you please but remember it's a summary so keep it concise

    I'm doing the exam tomorrow too.
    There are always more than 15'right'points on the mark scheme.
    Make sure they are different and no repetition!
    If you do more the 15,they still wont give you a mark.

    Also be prepared for a split focus in the question e.g 2 things you need to look for or get points about.

    I hope you do well tomorrow.

    I don't think they give you extra lines though, there's only 15 lines

    I'll stick to 15 points to be on the safe side. Wouldn't want to be marked down for nothing

    No you cant as the whole point of the question is for the examiner to see how you choose whats important and pick up from te text. If you put two points in one thwy will only mark the first and give you no credit for the second. You shouldnt write more the 7 words for each point but you are able to quote from the text and so its easy! Good luck
