    Hey

    Well I am in a complete panic because I just realised that I might have put the wrong candidate number on my maths and bio paper... DO NOT ask me how I did that, I'm such a ****:mad: Would they still mark it? I mean I am literally shaking because of the fact that they might reject it which means I will defo have to retake

    Go and talk to the head of exams at your school, or ring the school now even and ask for their advice! The sooner the better, it may be that it can be corrected before the exams are sent?

    If you put your full name in legible handwriting then you should be fine. The folks at the exam board will notice that there are 2 people with the same exam number or someone with a non-existent exam number and will be able to sort it out. Trust me, when I worked for one, numerous people failed to put both name and candidate number yet still managed to get their results. Best thing you can do is to inform your exam officer at school and he/she will be able to let them know toso they can look out for it. Good luck.

    Examiners (as in the people walking about for 3 hours and getting paid for it) check candidate number with name at my school (and probably also check the right name was sitting in the right seat).

    All exam papers are electronically scanned before being sent to any markers. It'll probably flag up that your name and candidate number don't match where a real life person will probably look over your details and realise the mistake. I wouldn't panic, I expect that they have problem similar to this all the time. Best of luck with the rest of your exams!

    Don't worry this is the reason they want you to put initials, name, signature on the paper. Just in case one of them is wrong you can be identified. If you have left them all out then it is a different matter, and you should get a U for being a halfwit in the first place!

    I mean, (apart from the signature, which could be illegible) you could only guess who it was through their handwriting, yeah?
