Hello all,
quick question before the exams begin, when the 6 markers turn up, can I bullet point my answers? Or will that stop me from getting higher marks? For GCSE's

yeah, nothing wrong with it, it may help the examiner understand your point(s)
but don't start a new bullet point by carrying on information from the last bullet point

But ask your teacher just in case

AQA have done a Q&A on the forums, and they've said bullet points are fine.

However, I would say that it's not a good idea to do one/two word bullet points usually- you need to explain your ideas!

You also need to make sure to include a conclusion in any questions that ask you to "evaluate" or "justify" to get the top marks.
