How will this be marked?Watch this thread
In an exam I spent about half of my third paragraph speaking about contextual knowledge outside of the set time period of the question. How much will this affected the mark I get for the essay? To put it into context the things I was mentioning wasn’t too far away from the question (a few years or so), I feel quite confident the rest of the essay was well written (I hadn’t made the mistake elsewhere), I had written quite a lot (5-6 pages) and I managed to conclude. I get that it would get anywhere near top marks for this reason but how bad would it be for this essay as a whole? Any advice would be much appreciated.
