After finding out my Edexcel results login, I just realised you were meant to write the full name on the exam papers. I just wrote my First name and Last name!

Will they still be able to mark my papers, given that I wrote my candidate number and centre number fine?

Sorry if this is stupid, but I'm just panicking!!

EDIT: yep. probably deserved that neg. stupid question, sorry!

It's absolutely irrelevant and you should not worry. They could find out who you are from your center number and candidate number so your name is pretty much there for clarification.

you could write "MC F. Dong", and as long as your candidate number and centre number are there, they'd know where to send the marks.

No, you're fine, they tend to go on candidate numbers, not on names anyway. And unless there's two people at your school with your name it won't even be an issue.

I think my middle name is on the system but I have never ever wrote it. Not once. Mostly because I don't know how to spell it. My mum is half foreign so my grandma gave me that middle name. Begins with Se... from there I don't know what it is.

And yes, I have recieved results for them. Lol.

I've never written my middle name on exams, it doesn't matter in the slightest

They really won't care; your surname, candidate number and centre number gives them all the necessary information to identify you. AQA don't even ask for your first name, just your surname and initials.

These exam worry threads are funny The only time when you'd have a reason to worry is if you wrote your exam in pink permanent sharpie or wrote expletives all over your paper. I've never written my middle name on an exam paper and it's never been a problem.

I didn't put my middle name either- a) I hate it b) It wasn't down on my slip with candidate number etc c) I didn't really want it on my results certificates

Even with a pink sharpie I think you could survive... was at this GCSE science thing once and apparently every year the chief examiner gets a pile of 'unscannables' to mark (e.g. when people write in pencil or something). But unless you particuarly want to annoy the chief examiner, I'd stick to black pen :L

At least you don't have four, then a triple-barreled surname.
