    Hi, I was so stupid when doing this paper, question 5 was to write a letter to an editor of a newspaper about a time you were 'pushed to the limit', but I didn't write a letter I just jumped straight into the content and I didn't even sign it at the end or write 'dear.....' at the beginning!! This was the same for one of my friends as well :| Will we still get a few marks for our answers?? I feel so annoyed :/

    Thank you

    I wouldn't dwell on it since you can't do anything about it. You might lose a mark or two (I'm not quite sure how they mark this), but so long as your content was good, you really shouldn't worry.

    Try to forget about it and enjoy your summer holidays!

    I know we just need to focus on the next exams coming up, I was just worried as I wasn't sure whether I will get any marks on that question, do you think we will get a few marks still ??

    All the best

    I did the same thing. I think it was out of 16, and when I asked my teacher, she said I would lose 4 marks at the very most. What grade are you aiming for?

    I did the exact same thing I don't think we'll lose too many marks as long as the content is good
