    I had an exam which was published by the OCR examboard. However during the exam I was so rushed into actually answering the questions and remembering the information, that I think I have not written the questions properly in the margin. By this I mean there was a question which u needed to write 3a and 3b but from what I can remember I only wrote question 3. I'm really stressing out as I don't know what the examiners will do about this situation. Similarly I may have forgotten to write question 2 but for each question I did rephrase the question in my writing so the examiner should know what question. I still feel VERY scared. Please HELP???!

    The examiner should be able to work it out from the context of your answer, and you are very unlikely to be penalised. don't worry bout it anyway, you cant change it now

    Hopefully they will be able to understand especially as it is an A2 exam and therefore even more important. I feel as though they may think that I am wasting their time for not writing the correct question which is so stressful for me
