Would I be correct in assuming ... that answers to comprehension questions must be written in complete sentences and not beginning 'because...'? Do children nowadays lose marks for this?
This is exactly the question I came to the forum to ask. On some answer sheets for English test papers, the answers start 'because...' and the space given for the answer doesn't really allow for the answer in a 'full sentence'. Does anyone know whether the Essex English 11+ exam requires 'because' type or full sentence type answers (or where I can find out)?
