    I sat my AS Maths exam today and For a small part, I used correction tape. I was panicking in the exam so I wasn't aware but now I'm just terrified!
    It was an Edexcel exam. Will it be okay?

    I don't know how it appears to people who mark it, but I'm sure that you're not the first person who's done it. I think it'll be fine.

    Same here... I used correction tape to correct a line or two in my M1 exam.
    My teacher said if there was only a little bit of correction tape then it should be fine and the mark shouldn't be affected much...but I am still very worry about it
    I just hope that they will still mark my paper:C

    I asked my teacher and he said they will only get annoyed whilst photocopying but they'll still mark it.
    I'm still worried too..

    Hopefully they will only get annoyed..
    We should probably stop worrying and focus on the coming exams... just make sure not to use correction tape any more

    You shouldn't use correction tape, you should just put a line through it. As you can lose out on marks.

    If you did some working out, and you got the wrong answer so you put a line through it - it could be that the working out is correct in the way you've done it. So you'd still get a mark, even if the answer was wrong. If they can't see it, you can't get any marks for it.
