Is it essential that you draw a border in the junior cert or is it just for extra marks? Because I find that it just eats into my time in the exams, etc.
It is not essential to draw a border, but it will help for overall presentation. My teacher said to go into the exam room 15 minutes early and draw borders on 5 sheets so you won't be wasting valuable exam time.
i went into my mocks early and lined the sheets as it saved time in the mock, but do draw them if you can as they are part of the presentation mark worth 10% (i think!), so it really could be the difference between the grade you might get vs. the grade you deserve
