Hi! I did my first Microeconomics paper last week. My technique is to work through the paper back to front, because it just works out for me since I’m less stressed when I’ve got the harder questions out of the way. The only problem is I used 2 additional booklets, and although I labelled each start of the question correctly, I’m just paranoid about how they mark our papers!

For one question, I ended up writing on the first additional booklet, and then continuing it onto the 2nd one. So in essence, my response was on 3 booklets! (Actual Paper, Additional Booklet 1, Additional Booklet 2). I read somewhere that examiners for essay subjects only mark like one question each and I’m really worried about them only having access to half of my answer due to my unconventional way of answering the questions

Can anyone put my mind at ease?

Yes I wrote “—> See Additional Booklet—>” underneath on the main paper. I also labelled each additional booklet as 1 and 2.
