    Hey guys

    I realized yesterday that one of the pens I had in my pencil case was erasable and I'm a bit worried that I may have used it for one or two of my exams. It's highly unlikely that I have (I've checked the ink content in my other two pens), but since I threw it away straight away I have a bit of a doubt.

    If any of you have any advice or have faced this same situation before, could you tell me what to do and whether there's a large chance it could affect my grade, just to put my mind at ease?

    Thanks
    Dude I wouldn't worry. Last year I took one gcse early (doing the rest now) and I wrote all the question numbers(like 24 different questions) that i answered in the wrong place lol still got 96/100 A*

    They'll figure something out lol

    As everyone else has said, don't worry - if they can't see answers on Scoris, they give the examiner a hard copy.

    I think I did the same today. I think, on the first of my two English Language exams today, I wrote May instead of June. I tried to speak to one of the invigilators in the hall at the time that I realised, but I don't think he understood me. I'm not really worried about it but it's a thought.
    i heard though that they can disqualify your paper because of the alterations on the exam giving the student an advantage but i presume it'll be fine as the invigilators go round and tick of your number anyway!
