    SPaG in literature is only 4 marks per question (atleast in wjec) so the most they'll take off is 1/2 marks. it wont affect the content marks

    SPaG applies to the longer questions only and if you have spelled it wrong in one question it won't be dramatic as they will only take 1 or 2 marks off.
