hello, for the HSK 3 writing part where you compose the words into a sentence, does the punctuation really matters?

Yes it matters.

 

Have a look here https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2012/11/22/a-light-hearted-look-at-how-punctuation-can-change-meaning/

 

One example I like is - "Most of the time travellers worry about their luggage"

 

Probably was really supposed read - " Most of the time, travellers worry about their luggage"

 

Go on, splash out, use punctuation, they don't cost anything.:)

 

I don't think it matters what language you are writing in.

Dr. Who doesn't worry about his luggage as he steps into the Tardis.

For HSK 3 you only have to arrange given characters into a sentence.

@mungouk does that mean the sentences don't require punctuation to make sense?

If you're doing the computer-based test then you're simply re-arranging tiles which have characters on them (no punctuation).

Same on the written paper... just re-arrange what you are given. See below for an example.  

 

@LouiseM have you looked at past papers?
