Does it matter in the exam, what order you write the terms in.
For example : 13x^2 + 2x^3 -9
Or do you have to write it with the cubed term first then squared term.
Also what about a^b -2a. Is that the correct way of writing the final answer?
And would the examiner mark you down for writing the terms in the wrong order even though it's the same answer ?

There's no right order. It is generally simpler for you to use later on if you descend in terms, so the largest at the front, but it is completely personal preference and, provided your writing is clear, you wont drop any marks.
