    I mean, (apart from the signature, which could be illegible) you could only guess who it was through their handwriting, yeah?
    no. if the exam centre number is on it it's fine. they can contact the school/college and see who it was. there's only going to be like one person without their name written on the paper of everyone who took the exam.

    Hi, I feel like I've done the same thing and written down the wrong candidate number. Was your exam still marked even though you put down the wrong candidate number?

    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
    The chief examiners will use the paper to add to the celebratory bonfire they have each year to celebrate the failure of thousands of hopeful children.

    Don't worry, the exams officer at your school will check each paper for name and centre number before sending them off, which is enough for them to identify who the paper belong to.

    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).
    Our examiners get annoyed if you ask for paper at the beginning of the exam because "they need something to do"
