    I'm doing WJEC A level maths and i'm having a problem with showing all the steps in my calculations as i tend to skip steps i find obvious. However these steps are a B1 mark each on the mark scheme, does that mean I wont get full marks for the questions even if I got the right answer and its obvious that i used the method in my calculation?

    Although it's annoying I think you should definitely show each line of working in your answer. If they are specific marks in the mark scheme then you probably wont get the mark. Must be frustrating but I would say try and write a line per mark for 3/4/5/6 markers and about 2 lines per mark for 7+ ones.
