    It will be fine. They'll have human operators to correct any problems with the scanning process.

    In 50 years time, when you're chucking another wheelie bin into the garbage truck, you'll remember the time you doodled on the barcode. "Never again".

    You'll be fine, the exam board won't deliberately not mark a paper because of a mark on the barcode. The people scanning will notice if it won't scan and will sort it out, don't stress

    In some of the exams they say not to write anything in the bar codes because they cut the bar code border off it, meaning if you were to write an answer or anyhting on the bar code it couldn't be marked You'll be fine they'll still mark it
