Length
below length, the examiner adjusts the maximum mark and the mark given propor-

Handwriting and Spelling
Poor handwriting, spelling errors or faulty punctuation are not specifically penalised,
but the overall impression mark may be adjusted if it is felt that communication is
impeded. American usage and spelling are acceptable.
Irrelevance

who deliberately misinterpret the question are penalised.
