    'Look at the back of your page for further information'. Is it correct?

    Hi teachers,
    If I wrote an additonal correction or explanation to one of the student's homerwork sentence. Should I say, 'Look at the back of your page for further information'. Is there a better or shorter one? Is it better to say, 'See the back of your page ...'

    Thanks in advance.

    Normally, if we want someone to look at the reverse side of a piece of paper we write "P.T.O." which means "Please turn over". Your sentence is ok but I would use "Please turn over for further corrections". That way, you can also teach your student(s) another useful English phrase and abbreviation.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your help. I myself didn't know about it.
