    In my writing, I seem to have many strikethroughs for words that I find false. However, overall I'm pretty sure my writing can still be seen.

    The examiner will still read it, right? Will they give deductions because of it or they must give it purely to the content and not how many strikethroughs candidates have?

    You mean crossing out? If you can still read it after crossing out they usually still mark it

    They don't mark what you've crossed out. It says so in the exam instructions that are read before exam.

    Yeah, But I got lots of like crossing outs, so I'm worried they'll deduct marks for being messy.

    Explain my C in english where I crossed out everything except for 1 paragraph and you could see through the crossing out easily

    Honestly it could just depend on the examiner but I know some who won't so I wouldn't take the risk personally.
