    If the question is 'name two' and it's two marks and you name three and one is wrong, you will probably get one mark.

    I think it's +1 for right and -1 for wrong, depending on the total marks. I.e. 6 mark question, you write 4 right and two wrong, you would get four.

    If they ask for two examples and you write three, most examiners are told to mark the first two answers you put(ignoring the third, even if right).

    If they don't instruct how many answers/points to give, they mark everything you write, I think.

    You might do..
    the general principle is 'right+wrong=wrong'.

    But don't worry about it, I think you should get the marks.
