    In my C3 exam, I did the first question but wasn't satisfied with my answer so I did it again and I was happy with the answer I got the second time. However, I re-did the question at the end of the exam because I didn't want to waste time and not score on the rest of the paper. Since I re-did the question at the end of the paper, I didn't have time to put a line through the wrong working out because I was panicking through the rest of the paper.

    Am I going to lose out on any marks for the question or will the examiners simply ignore the wrong calculations?

    Thanks in advance.

    Forgot to say the exam board is OCR MEI.

    Afaik if you are with Edexcel, they mark all attempts and award marks for the highest scoring attempt. I do not know about other exam boards, you'd have to look it up.
