    OMG! So I realized I reversed my axes in the Practical exams of CIE Physics. How many marks am I typically going to lose? Would there be an error carried forward for the slopes and intercept. Everything else was perfect except for that slight mistake.

    Did they specifically request that you draw the graph in a particular way?
    If so you'll probably lose all the marks for the graph, but everything else will be fine - you'll get error carried forward I think.
    I made a similar mistake in my chemistry EMPA for AQA my teacher said I'd lose the marks on that particular point, but the rest should be secure.
    CIE may work differently and you may be penalised to a greater or lesser degree.

    Yeah they did specify, But aren't the marks distributed like marks for plotting, line of best fit, correct axes etc. I was hoping I'll lose only the mark for correct axes.

    Plotting the points you may get, and the line of best fit, - as they're independent of the axes. So yeah, you may be onto a winner
