If the writing was outside of the border, probably not, as only everything inside the black border is scanned in.

But if you're talking about the space below a series of lines, then it should be fine, especially since you indicated with an asterisk that there was more in your answer.

I'm not absolutely sure! I think examiners are given individual questions to mark, so they can only see parts of the page, but I think that they might be able to see the whole page if they realised that the answer was not complete. It might depend on the examiner.

I was talking to friend about this and she said she did the same thing for pretty much all her exams, she even did arrows around the page. but she said that as long as it is within the border everything will get marked because the paper is scanned and everything inside the border is scanned and viewed by the examiner so i am assuming they can clearly see that a question has not finished and is being carried on so it should get marked. Hopefully !!
