    Should be okay. As long as you wrote your name clearly, plus the centre number and name, breathe. They only put that on there for extra info in case they can't read your writing etc. Don't worry!

    Yes it should be fine. Did you not include your school? ( you are in school/ college right?)

    Definately call them. You'll have to find out if they can find your papers, can't say this has ever happened to anyone I know. There's a slight chance you'll do it again....there's no proof that that paper belongs to you if your name isn't written on it... Sorry.

    do they mark section A and section B separately? because if they dont, i believe it will be ok because the section A has all my information

    When did you sit the exam?
    Call your college/school up and talk to them about it (preferably your IB co ordinator)! I don't know when papers get sent off but you might find they're still in the college and the situation can be rectified.

    It all gets scanned at some point, so I'd imagine everything gets separated, therefore I would imagine it could definitely be an issue if your sheets don't have your candidate number on!

    How about if you didn't write your centre number but wrote everything else?
