Hi. :wave: No you won't lose marks dadori. You may not gain any extra marks either, but it is good that the Examiners will see, by your example, that you know the H&S side of what the question asked and if they were in doubt by your reply, this could also prove your knowledge. ./thumbsup..

If you had time to do this in exams, well done and good luck with your results. .salut

I have a habit of writing everything coming to mind, feeling that a short answer isn't legit enough, with practice it will be what is being asked only.

That's right Safety Bear. Sometimes the Waffle ruins the actual reply.

Will you lose marks if questions arent as per command words but the detail is there?

Yes, if you were to bullet point instead of explain then you will not get full marks, although you would get some points
