    Can they penalise you for writing over 150 words in the writing section?
    Worth checking the markscheme -

    What I would imagine is that there's a small amount of leeway (maybe 5-15 words either side) and then get penalised after that.

    That's just the way of questions like this, id look up the paper myself but I'm not 100% sure which part it's in so I would suggest looking it up because it'll be in the mark scheme

    Hey does anyone have the igcse edexcel french book by yvette grime- i need it for my studies and i would like to buy it from anyone who has it. it is cureently out of stock and im stressing out right now
