    In my maths C1 and C3 exams there were graphs to draw, and I used a pencil to draw them. I had completely forgotten that I should only use a blue or black pen. What will happen, will I lose marks, or will I not gain any for those graphs?

    I used pencil for diagrams in maths C1 and C2 last year, as well as Physics unit 1 and 2. No issues.
    What exam board are you on? Both my Maths and Physics were Edexcel.

    And if you did the same C3 exam as me, the graph was only 3 marks. An annoyance, but if you did OK on the rest of it it shouldn't be an issue.

    Yeh, that was pretty dumb of you:P: . They could suspect you of cheating because anyone could rub out the pencil and change it?

    I've always used a pencil for drawing mechanisms/graphs etc on my bio and chem papers never had any issues. I'm pretty sure we are allowed to use them
