m8, the same thing happened to me in my GCSE's: I got an A*. They are sent off as a batch of scripts from your school so it wont be a problem.

aww, you are not alone. I wrote the right centre number of my school on the test paper..and then wrote the wrong one on the extra sheet i asked for..which is if you run out of space of the real paper. For some reason i decided to swap the middle two numbers....:confused:

im not really sure how many times i did that...its only because i had 25 minutes left and i had finished the paper that i decided to check EVERYTHING but dont worry about it. they have your name on there, and your school number, besides as ARROB said they are sent in packs for each school.

Just keep calm
it'll be fine, this stuff probably happens to them a lot.

Don't worry, I totally buggered mine up once and put the centre number as the candidate number and all sorts all over and mine still got marked.
It's just to make things easier for your exams office I think!

I remember i put the wrong question number once and even that had to go through the head of department and the exam board, god forbid the examiner should just have to spend an extra few seconds of his time realising i answered the question above the one i said i had answered :rolleyes: Ah well, not sure how candidate numbers affect exams...

I believe that the candidate number is only there to help the examiner identify you, so if you got the other details ok then you should be fine. also the candidate number has nothing to do with the exam board, its only from your school (mine changed when I changed schools so I went and asked lol!) so you should be ok

I contacted my exam officer! She wouldn't do anything though, just said that if there was a problem they'd call her!!!
And then she shut the door.
IS THAT IT?????

Yes that's it. If your exams officer says it'll be fine then it will be, that's what they're paid for. Exam boards will have contingency plans in order if all the numbers and the names on the front of the answer booklet don't add up, they won't just fail you. Don't worry about it

my brother put down the wrong candidate number on his.
once he got the results, he requested his script
and on the paper, the examiner had corrected his candiate number and it said "caniddate number changed by examiner" on the paper
