    So I did one of my higher exams, and I didn't notice part of a question, so I continued on labelling my answers as if that one wasn't there. That means that the labelling of the subsequent questions was wrong by a letter (ie. I labbeled f as e, g as f, etc.) The SQA marker should notice but will I be penalised? Will I lose all the marks for the questions I labelled incorrectly?

    Any help would be really appreciated

    No you shouldn't be penalised at all! They will notice if your answers aren't linking up to the questions, my maths teacher tells me if you are getting a lot of the multiple choice wrong in a row they will check your working to make sure you haven't missed a box or anything!

    I suspected it was you! Well, I'm sure you'll have done well anyway, as surely the markers take into account the time pressure, etc and will recognise that it was just a mistake. Now, I really ought to go back to revising history...
    Well, good luck for bio on Wednesday, as well as the rest of your exams.
