    So if there is a question like
    How many sweets can Dave buy.
    And you answer 5 sweets
    Could you lose marks for writing "sweets" even if you don't need to.
    Thanks for answering my probably stupid question !

    I don't think they care much about writing thinks like sweets. I do it myself since we always got shouted at by teachers for not doing it. The markschemes generally don't specify things like that unless it's units like centimetres though so you should be fine either way.
