For a 3 marker, it's unlikely that you'll get a mark off for that.However, you would lose marks if you just outlined the steps. The questions said "explain." (if I remember correctly)

are you sure. but listing them is the same as explaining them. they are pretty much explaining.
look at the spider? how can you explain that?
well im not sure. i cant remember the question too.
btw there was another step i think. something about not holding it. i cant really remember what i wrote.
and how stupid it is that they wont give us our papers back. like wat if they make mistakes while marking them? we wont be able to fight for our marks. >.

lol, to prevent us getting the papers, I think they said that they can destroy our papers on the blue sheet.
Well, I thought we needed to say that once we touch the spiders, it's easier to catch them later or whatever they said.

exactly. They directly gave out the answer. It was a band 1 question, IMO.

I've actually found living and working in the community a bit of challenge to do due to time limit.I wasted too much time on Module A, leaving me only 22 mins for Module B.
