    Just did my English igcse language paper3 (directed writing and composition).

    All went well until I realised that Mr Schmit had moved from the city to the country AND BACK .
    Ie. I wrote the whole thing as if schmit was still living in the country.
    Realistically the only thing that would be wrong is the tense ie. The kids don't like the slow internet vs The kids didn't the slow internet .

    What's the most marks I would lose? Surely content marks only?! Just a slight misunderstanding from the text... Someone help!!!

    Thanks

    I dont think more than 2-3, not sure whether that would be content or grammar, as tenses are technically part of style and accuracy marks.

    Thanks a lot - just worried that as well as a writing problem it will be less marks for content too as I failed to fully understand the text :/
