I wrote the answer CH2(BR)CH(BR)CH2OH for a question but the mark scheme says BRCH2CHBRCH2OH!

Isnt it the same thing?

I think it is the same thing, because the mark scheme one says that there is a CH bond in there, whereas you have put the CH bond in yours aswell. The mark scheme have just wrote it in a different way. Hope this helps :)
