    I'm sure it's not a major problem and lots of people do it, you might be lucky and they mark both, and the one you score highest in is the mark you'll get for that section to be added to your total mark? Or else they'll pick the first one...but sure you don't have to worry about failing! Just be thankful you answered 6 instead of doing 4 and only realising when you have 15 mins left in the exam like me....

    cheers but still cant be sure they wont just say you shouldn't have done it and give me a F, but yeh hopefully they will just mark the first one. I think i might contact them and ask

    Of course you can't assume, but I can't see them being that cruel, I'm sure they have a system because it's common enough, good luck!
