Word Count after first submission

Morning all,

I am looking for some advice after reading and hearing some conflicting information.

I have been referred on four AC for one of my untis and I am concerned about word count. I already cut a lot of text out to meet the word count and now I am worried that when I add in additional text on my referred AC, it will take me way above the word count limit. I am also worried that if I reduce text in the AC I passed, that I may then fail those elements on re-submission. 

I have heard that I can't amend the AC that have already been marked as a pass and only amend the AC that were referred, adding this in highlighted text. However if I am already at my maximum word count, how to I expand the answer and stay within word count?


Please could anyone offer any advice?

  • I don't think there is a word count is used on resubmissions as long as it is within a reasonable amount
