    Internal Assessment 2018
    Hi Beth, it used to work but maybe they have changed the system... one way to find out is to try changing your sample. otherwise you must simply submit the first selection. It shouldnt really matter too much in the end, I hope.

    Hi Stephen, asking students to spell check or correct mistakes is not editing if they do it themselves. Point out that it will make a better impression on the examiner ( although i would hope that examiners are sympathetic to ESL students writing)
