    You aren't meant to use liquid and gel ink pens as far as I know, however I haven't heard of anyone getting penalised for it. You should probably check with your teacher or exam officer. One issue with these kinds of pens is they can smudge, making things more difficult for yourself.

    Then instructions to candidates http://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/i...xams-2016-2017 say:
    Do not use correcting pens, fluid or tape, erasable pens, highlighters or gel pens in your answers.

    I doubt they'd care much...
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
