    No, but you should really ask for extra paper, or you run the risk of it being illegible

    No, its a judgement call. If it's, like, an extra line, just go under. Do NOT try to squeeze an extra paragraph in in tiny handwriting, they just won't bother trying to read it

    You can't write outside the box in which the lines are in as exam papers are sent electronically to the markers and get cut around the outside. I would definitely ask for extra paper

    It's fine, I used to do that all the time. Just make sure it's legible and not all over the place or excessive.

    You know how there's a border around the lined area (I think it's usually a slightly different colour)? You can't write in there because it won't be counted. Anything inside the lined area is fine as long as it makes sense and can be read. I even once bullet pointed diagonally across the page cos I was really running out of time.
    If you run out of space in the lined area you'll need to ask for extra paper. I suggest if you get onto your last page putting your hand up then so they have some time to get to you before you actually run out of space.
    So again, anything that can be read inside the lined box is fine, bit anything else is a no go.

    Hope that helps.

    Because each marker marks the same of one question, for example, they mark all question 1B's and it means the papers can stay anonymous as well and it's easier to distribute them I suppose and make sure none are lost and also anything that is in the box will be marked
