I am a 1st time taker of the level 3 exam. Pretty straightforward question, can we use abbreviations in the essay portion? If not, I would like to kick the habit now while answering practice questions. I often use 400K or 4 mill.I also use w/ and w/o a lot. Is that something they will penalize me for? I feel like it shouldn’t be an issue but I want to make sure. In the high stress environment of the exam I could see myself resorting to those abbreviations out of habit.
