    ...So like, my college are nobheads in the sense that they don't do January exams so i had to go and register to do retakes in another college...
    I did a biology retake on Tuesday and i realised today that i have a separate candidate number for the centre i'm doing retakes in... but i put in my normal college candidate number in...
    I went to the office after my exam today but then they said that the papers have already been sent off... and the head hasn't gotten back to me yet...

    ...Should i be worrying?
    Sorry if this seems rather trivial, it probably is but i'm quite scared at the moment, lol

    Happens more often than you think sweetie.

    Just 'fight' with whoever is in charge of the exams, and constantly be in the know. This can be fixed, because they gather almost thousands, and then scan them. Make you you tell them all the information of what you did write on the exam paper.

    AQA Biol Unit 1 eh? Me too! If you found it hard, then I feel you.

    Sorry I can't feel the position you're in now!

    the examiners would be aware of the mistakes since they will see that is it an invalid candidate number and they'll hopefully fix it
