    I had a derp moment in my Germany exam for History in which I thought that the second part of one question was a different question and , basically, I may have ticked the wrong box and answered a question different to the one I ticked. Will this lose me the marks for the question?

    I don't think so.. They may figure out what question you answered from your answer (if you made it specific enough). I think the ticking box thing just indicates to the examiner what question you'll be answering. Let's hope it's okay

    Nah you won't. I did the exact same thing in my RS GCSE exam and I got 48/50 (A*), the examiners aren't stupid, they'll work it out
