    Alright, thanks! This is calming me a lot. Just making sure; so, though I registered with full name, and I used my first name in printouts, it's most probably okay right?
    If they cna trace your paper to you, then they will give you the marks imo. They can do that as everyone else has told you becayse they have the unqiue candidate number, which i assume was correct? That will identify you to your record and school etc. I think you will be fine, but if that worried you can contact the esam board to notify them and they will make a note of it. I do not think thats needed and you will be fine.

    Go and do your other revision.

    Here are 3 exams officers who will tell you there is nothing to worry about, I am assuming, since, in my experience, exams officers check the papers for missing information on the front before sending them off.

    I have already got my full name in the front page of the booklet. Just that in my printouts I use my first name and center number and candidate number only. I fear they will give me deductions for not using my full name as I was entered into the database that way.

    Every paper is checked before it's sent off - they have to go in order so it's simple to check against the candidate list. Names are added if they are needed and we check the candidate numbers are written clearly - you'd be surprised how panic can affect what people write on the front page!

    Exams aren't marked on a basis of punishing you for things like that. If it's got your centre number and candidate number on, they will know whose it is and you'll get the marks your answer deserves.

    I didn't think it was only our exams officers who did this, but needed to make sure. I apologise for getting your title wrong!
