    v. good

    Is it correct to write v. good as a short form for very good, please?

    Re: v. good

    When I was at school, "V good" was a common comment written on pupils' homework by the teachers. Rarely on my science and never on my art homework though.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
