We recently had to write an essay about whether or not we thought athletes made too much money. The teacher spent about a month teaching us formatting and the likes. I hated it. So I wrote my essay how I write normally and turned it in. On a scale of 1-6, my teacher gave me a 2. The county which then went and graded them gave me a 6. They didn't mention one complaint about the way I wrote it. English at this point is purely subjective and it drives me crazy. RS6 for reading.
