    If it's anything like Geography coursework they probably deduct a couple of marks, it's 2 for Geography as exceeding word count does not allow the highest band so if your answer was the top band it usually required answer to be within word limit. Best to check this though with your teacheer. Good luck!

    You DO NOT lose marks for going over nor ignored by the examiner. However, you will not be able to get to the top band as you're not concise.
