Did an English exam closed when it should have been open book?

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    So for the past year for English literature AS, we've been doing closed book examinations for Keats' poetry.

    I did the exam yesterday and remembered a bunch of quotes, but when I'd finished I read on the paper we were meant to have extracts.

    My teacher checked after and realised this too, sending an email to the exam board.

    She said they'd consider this when marking our exams, but will this affect my grade? I thought it had gone pretty well.

    Firstly, how the hell did no-one realise this earlier?! Like, seriously??!!
    Secondly, they might add on extra marks, because this would effect your grade.
    If they don't do anything, then as you said it went well, it shouldn't be too big a problem, and at least you didn't spend time looking through the text
    Thirdly, your teacher should get fired.
