Thanks for all this advice, MPC. I'll be taking my first written exam on May 2 and the information here is really helpful!

I have a question for you or anyone with knowledge of the grading process that arose as I was practicing an old exam. In part (b) of a question they asked for list X but I wasn't sure whether they want list X or list Y, so I write down both (and I don't write anything contradictory - just two somewhat related lists). In part (c) they were looking for list Y, but I didn't recognized that, so I answered with list Z. How much credit would I get on these two parts?

My guess is I would get full credit for part (b), which contained the full answer along with a lot of extraneous information, and no credit for part (c). But is there any chance the grader would realize that I included the correct answer to (c) in part (b) and give me some credit?

Wow, that's getting complicated there....and I'm not sure if such a situation has occurred before.

I really don't know what they would do. It is possible one might get points for having the correct info within the same =numbered= question, but not the proper =lettered= subpart. The questions are graded by number, and the subparts aren't separated for grading.

To be sure, I wouldn't worry about it too much. If you have time enough to worry while you're taking the exam yourself, you have time to write more
