    Do you lose marks as it looks really untidy ;/

      Ask the exam supervisor or teacher for extra paper in the actual exam, the examiners perfectly accept it and a small note letting them know you have continued your essay on another page will be much neater then sentences sprawled all over the place

      I sometimes find myself doing this! The amount of space they give is supposed to indicate how much you write, but i find myself writing more in subjects like history and science. You could try making your writing smaller or shortening your answers on the short question sections. Otherwise, just ask for extra paper. :) I hope this helps.

      yes all the time :O I think it probably happens to everyone sometimes :P But they should really rethink the spaces they give you cause i always start to question myself then....
