Hi!

If I exceed the word count by exactly 10% in each essay. Would it be frowned upon or worse?

Thanks!

I'm not sure if they'd punish you but no way they'll give you more points for a larger essay..

I think you'd be viewed as incapable / unwilling to follow directions.

Schools don't care if people go 10% over the word count, especially if they only do for 1 or 2 essays but meet the wordcount limit for other essays.
