    Hi everyone. I am so worried now that results day is around the corner because I remember clear as day that I forgot to write my name in block capitals in both of my R.E. exams and one of my Psychology exams. Will this have any bearing to whether or not my paper gets marked?
    I'm sure that the exam board would understand that you were stressed and the exams took over. It shouldn't affect your marking as they only do this for measures of being able to read your name, as long as it's readable it shouldn't cause a problem. If there was a problem I'm sure that by now someone would know. Don't worry and just enjoy the last few days

    As long as it's legible, you shouldn't have to worry.

    It will still get marked as your exam officer should have seen and corrected this. Either way as long as your writing is legible it will get marked so don't stress. At least you didn't do as bad as me, I wrote in gel point pen in English and RS which apparently we weren't allowed to use.

    Yes please just for aqa though. Thank you very much ☺
    Here

    Biology
    B1 | A* = 40, A = 35, B = 29, C = 20
    B2 | A* = 43, A = 38, B = 32, C = 23
    B3 | A* = 45, A = 40, B = 34, C = 25

    Chemistry
    C1 | A* = 47, A = 42, B = 36, C = 22
    C2 | A* = 44, A = 39, B = 33, C = 20
    C3 | A* = 43, A = 38, B = 31, C = 24

    Physics
    P1 | A* = 43, A = 36, B = 29, C = 20
    P2 | A* = 42, A = 35, B = 27, C = 18
    P3 | A* = 46, A = 39, B = 31, C = 23

    These are pure predictions.
    I have seen the paper, but not the mark scheme.
    This is pure estimate based on previous experience of past papers.

    That happened to me as well and I also put my surname in the forename box and vice versa on a few of my exams. I'm hoping that it will be ok.

    It doesn't matter, capitals or not.
    I didn't write ever in Block Capitals and my results still came through fine!

    They deal with it as normal through your candidate number.
    They don't need your name.
    They only use it when you ask for a remark to confirm your name.

    Did anyone do the WJEC exams? :~)
    I'm WJEC for all my subjects except Science. I've only sat 6 exams as I've just finished Year 10; I sat the Unit 1 Welsh paper, Unit 1 I.C.T paper and Unit 2 Thematic Study History paper on The Changing Role of Women. What exams did you sit?

    Yes i did. How did you find it? ☺
    I found it difficult. In my opinion it was harder than last year's paper. I really hope the grade boundaries go down but I don't think they will

    How did you find it? What did you get in your controlled assessment?

    Would you be able to predict EdExcel science and maths or are you only familiar with AQA? )
