Should I use a different coloured biro for quotes?

    This question is for anyone who teaches or corrects Leaving Cert English - should I use a different coloured pen for quotes? Apart from green or red, obviously! I always have done this to make quotes stand out, but I'm wondering whether correctors prefer it or not.

    Absolutely no need to change colour of pen for quotations . Just keep on writing. Best of luck in your exams. :)

    Personally, I find it very annoying, I can spot a quotation without a flashing neon light over it:rolleyes: Addressing the question asked in a suitable structure is far more important than quotations.

    Don't bother. Just keep your handwriting as neat as possible. And please, don't bother 'quoting' at length from the texts in your comprehending section.

    Definitely don't. For one thing, it's a time waster and for LC English you need all the time you can get! Best of luck :)
