    You don't get marked on SPAG in those questions so I don't see any reason why not; I've always used bullet points in my answers in science questions to lay it out in a clear format, so that the examiner can quickly read through and see my key points, and my teacher has never marked me down for it

    I don't think so. I think the best is to put it into sentences and explain. I always try to explain what i'm writing about by saying 'therefore this leads ti etc'. Its best to be safe just in case

    Okay, thank you I figured using bullet points would help me to stay calmer and get to the point in the exam x
