Hi!
I search on the dictionary
Straight away (idiom) = immediately
Straightaway (noun),(adverb) = straight

Sorry
I'll check again
all of this, which means immediately.

My dictionary gives "straightaway" as a variant of "straight away", so it can mean "immediately".

Personally I'd usually write it as two words, but it was written as one word in the Cambridge book.

I see examiners can be paid one pound seventy five sterling per task. I can see why they only spend five minutes on each submission.

Exactly Sunita. Unfortunately they spend very little time on each person's answers.
