Hey guys this must sound really dumb, I'm taking the CIE chemistry A level on my own and when I'm asked to draw a structure for organic chemistry, I just draw the full displayed formula, as I learnt this was a guaranteed way to get the marks, is this true? Adding to this, when I'm asked to draw a chiral molecule, I draw the full displayed formula with the relevant bond angles, however the marking scheme shows a skeletal layout, is my method correct or do I draw skeletal in these situations, thanks a lot

If they don't specify it must be the displayed formula just draw the skeletal one, it's much easier to use and quicker to draw. There's no need to put in bond angles (that may very well not be quite right anyway).
