    I know the mark schemes are strict, but to what extent will the examiner reject an answer? For example, if I wrote "allows the formation of enzyme-substrate complexes" and the correct answer in the MS was "enzyme-substrate complexes form" would I be marked incorrect? I understand if there is a genuine biological mistake in the answer, but surely if the answer seems correct and along the exact same lines it would get the mark?

    If anyone knows anything about this please let me know! Thanks

    I hope you would get awarded the mark for that, otherwise that would just be ridiculous
