Is bullet points acceptable for written elements of FS exam?


Just wondering if you get less marks if you bullet point key points for some of the written tasks where bullet point is appropriate and then expand into sentences etc in areas where it is needed?

Or does the examiner expect full sentences and paragraphs on all written areas?

    Hi Topcat

    Bullet points should be fine. I used them for the Pro/Con Analysis part.
    I found this useful for where I needed to reduce word count, and if required put see Ref X. a more detailed description can be found there.
    A lot of the time you find yourself repeating things. But always better to make sure all points are covered

    Just noticed I'm talking about wrong thing...AArrgghh

    But Yes, Bullet points will be fine.
    Its easier to get your point across and remember its easier fro the examiner to read.
    I used a load of them. Stating everything I needed in a short space of time, then once all done, I went back and expanded on bullet points.
