    In the mei fp1 answer booklets, for questions where you have to indicate stuff on an argand diagram there is just a blank space, so do we just sketch it? Even though we have to have precision with loci etc. I thought they would've had graph paper but it doesn't look like it.

    Yeah, just sketch it. It doesn't need to be very precise, just showcase the relevant features, label the important points.

    do we need to write all the numbers on the axis (like a normal graph), only show the numbers of point of answer, or no numbers at all?
    Because i looked at the mark scheme and it has no numbers at all, but idk if they can penalise us for that?

    You don't need to write all the numbers on the axis and it's good practice to label the essential points but sometimes they aren't worth any marks, I'd say best to show the essential points for safety and because it's good practice.

    Just as a last-minute aside, examiners sometimes look for symmetry in your Argand diagram. So if you have a complex number and its conjugate, make sure they are roughly symmetrical about the axis.
