Accumulating tips for L3 essay questions

From my research, so far I have these pointers below. If anyone else has any to add, please do:
  • Don't adopt a 'university essay' approach, bullet points, phrases and to-the-point works best
  • Pen or pencil works, whichever you personally think works best for you
Questions I have - if anyone has answers (or additional questions), please add:
  • Do examiners penalize you for crappy handwriting? Under the time pressure I'm not sure how good my writing will be, and it tends to get lousier the less sure I am about what I'm writing :smile:
  • How are they graded - are they looking for simply 'the answer' and anything else will not work, or does understanding of the subject, even if the answer is ultimately wrong, merit some points?
