CREAC format on exam

Postby Hutz_and_Goodman » Tue Dec 11, 2012 7:47 pm

I took my first exam today (contracts) and the exam instructions stated to write in CREAC format...i think I nailed the test, wrote 3,000 words in an hour and a half, but realized when I got out that i didn't do this (I used some version of IRAC). I have a lot of experience with writing, and am a strong writer. Does anyone think this will be a point deduction (failure to follow the format)?

If you went into any depth in the rule portion, it's pretty much an explanation. So you're fine unless you blithely wrote UCC language (assuming UCC-oriented Ks class) and analyzed as if everything's a straightforward application thereof.

Don't sweat it.

C = I
