STEP Support Programme

sketch diagrams/graphs

Would I lose mark if I use my pencil to sketch the graph? Or I should use my pen instead of pencil?

STEP papers are marked using the actual scripts, rather than being scanned and sent to markers electronically, so using pencil should not be a problem.

Make sure that it isn't too faint.
