    If I written a letter instead of a report will I get 0 marks for that piece of writing? Just needed to know because that could be the reason why I fail tomorrow. Any help?

    No, don't worry - a lot of people did. The relevant marking criteria is form, which is only a fraction of the whole mark. Good luck for tomorrow, I'm sure you'll be fine!

    I'm pretty sure provided it's got the content the examiner was asking for, that you'll get the same amount of marks as if you did a report.

    I really don't think it makes a massive difference. You might lose a mark or two, but nothing major.

    Good luck!
