HEYY,
I am finishing my EPQ and I realise that I have 5500 words. Will I get penalised because of this? I don't wanna lose marks because of this.

Have a nice day everyone

The general consensus on academic essays is that word counts that differ by up to 10% either way are fine, so just cut it down to ensure its below 5,500 words and you should be good to go.
