This is about the comma. I am unsure about using it in sentences like this:
“There are specific instructions in the guidelines all about the numbers in this particular paragraph, so be sure you look at them and make the right choice.” - Is it correct that I have placed it before so, or should I place it before and or before both?
“Another issue applicants seem to have trouble with is paragraph length, so the guidelines clearly state how long your paragraph should be.” - I believe that I might have wrongly placed it before so as it is a long sentence. Is it right that I did so or should I divide the sentence into two?
“That style is described in the guidelines and sample documents are provided, so you can see the difference between clean and full verbatim.” - Should I place it before “and”? Or am I correct about placing it before “so”?
“Finally, remember that the instruction on this test is that it should be in clean verbatim.” - Is it correct that I have placed it before “Finally”?
“In this audio, I have started some sentences with words such as “and” and “so”, and I have used words such as “gonna”.” - I am sure that placing it after “In this audio” is wrong.
“If you transcribe those words just the way I said them, you’re not following CV style, and you’re going to get rejected.” Placing it before “and” is wrong too I believe.
Advises and guidance will be highly appreciated.
