Just a few qs that you hopefully don't mind answering

1. Can you write your answers in science exams as bullet points for 4-6 mark questions? I've always done this in lesson and my teacher has never said anything but just making sure I won't lose points for this in the exam

2. In exams where you have to write a long answer and are given lines to write it on, if you run out of lines can you continue to write underneath them? (as long as you are within the box)

1. For 4 markers you can, for 6 markers if it says the question is assessing spelling, punctuation, grammar then you can’t, full sentences and paragraphs.

2. You can continue underneath, there is also spare pages at the back of the booklet sometimes, or you can ask for extra paper, labelling which number you are answering and continuing your answer

1. You can use bullet points for questions that don't refer to marks for 'Quality of Written Communication'. These are usually 6-8 marks or more.

2. I'd advise asking the invigilator for an extra sheet - they have lots specifically for this. If your paper has to be scanned in, notes in margins may be lost. Stay within the lines .

Good luck.

Yeah, we're always advised to write in bullet points where we can because you are clear on what points you've already made
I've never seen spag marks come up, at least for igcse

Yes you can.
Science teachers also advise students to use bullet points if they are running out of time to make all their points because you normally get one mark per point regardless of whether it’s written in bullet points or paragraphs
