    I want to know if I can use a highlighter in my GCSE exams to underline key things in questions because this helps me stay focused to the question if that makes sense?

    Of course not!
    And don't you dare think about moving a muscle in the exam, or even looking around, or even breathing!

    You can, you can't write in a highlighter as it won't be picked up properly when it's photocopied

    Yes, just don't highlight your own writing as it won't show up when the paper is scanned.

    Is it ok to do something like this below?

    I highlighted the line on the diagram so that I can clearly see what I'm supposed to be looking at.

    And say in English can I highlight text in extracts?

    Yes its fine, dont worry.


    Are students permitted to use a highlighter pen?

    Highlighter pens may be used by candidates to mark up the question paper if that is the way they have been taught. Highlighters must not be used on the candidates answer scripts.

    So on maths papers I can highlight diagrams and parts of the question but not my final answer on the dotted line?
