Dot Points for Theory Questions?

Hi everyone, is it acceptable to use dot points for answers to theory questions on the exam, or is it generally encouraged to use full sentences/paragraphs?

Thanks.

I don't think you'll lose marks, so its something you might want to keep in mind if you are running really short on time.

Yeah if u are running out of time then yeah write it dot points, but you can never get full marks (according to my teacher) if you write in dot points. probs should have made that clearer in my answer
