But do we lose marks only for writing for example 310 words ? I usually aim for 270 but at the end i have 290-310. Is that a problem ?

Hello maam, are we allowed to use the expression ‘in my experience’? My friend told me to avoid personal pronouns rven in writing task 2? But the instructions said to give opinions, experience and such?
