- For Teachers
I am studying a grammar book talking about the uses of the Present Perfect tense.
In American English, the 'Simple Past' is often used instead of the 'Present Perfect tense'
1. I just arrived.
2. He didn't do it yet.
1. I've just arrived.
2. He hasn't done it yet.
When I sit for an open examination, shall I answer the questions in American or British way?

British exams accept American English and spelling- just try to be consistent.
