Hi,
My question could go for any exam.
Basically how do you let an examiner know that you mean to put a paragraph in. Urgh this is so hard to explain what i mean but, say I write a really long paragraph in the exam and then read it and think that I should make that paragraph into two. How do I let the examiner know that the paragraph isnt one but two?
Do you get what I mean? PLease any help would be most appreciated.

For example: People often sya that they had their best years in their 20's or 30's. But not me. Mine were definitely in my 40's. They were full of fun and mischief, much better than the years before. Right now I can look back on that exact moment that I decided to change my life for the better. (should be a change of paragraph) I sat crossed legged on the floor of a bright, colourful room. A bright colourful room full of prospect and happiness. But that made no difference to me, a woman with a thundercloud for a head.

See here I wrote a paragraph when it should be two but how do I indicate to the examiner that I meant to make it two?

I think you put // where you want to insert paragraph break.

And at the end of your essay, you can write “//=paragraph break” to make sure.
