If the question is deemed impossible, then it won't be taken into account. I think this happened before.

Only if they decide that there was something wrong with the question.
However, if most candidates found a question impossible then that would be something taken into account when setting grade boundaries

This will generally only happen if they look at the marks awarded for all candidates and see that it is extremely difficult and they deem it at an innappropriate level for A-Level. Generally they do not do this though, only in extreme cases I think
