Advanced Mathematics - Setting out

Setting out

In short-answer and extended-answer questions, set out work neatly. Be
systematic; label each section and use a pen (it's easier to read). If you
find part of your work is incorrect, cross it out with a line diagonally
through that section and indicate where your next attempt is. The marker
will look for the answer elsewhere, but if it is wrong they will come back
to your crossed out work and try to allocate marks.

If you do get part of the answer wrong, you may still pick up
consequential marks - as long as your mistake has not trivialised or
over-simplified the working.

For example, if part of the problem was to integrate a complex function,
and your wrong function is much easier to integrate, you will not get the
marks for that part of the problem.
