I wouldn't worry about it. I've done things like putting an incorrect candidate number, etc. and I've never had any problems. The exam board will have you on their database anyway.

They've also got your signature as well. So I suppose that the centre number et al. aren't that important.

Its ok they all get sent off together so it will be with a bunch of papers with (hopefully) the right centre nimber on it. I'm sure you're not the only person who's ever done it so don't worry about it!!!

I realised after the exams that I didn't put the attempted questions on the right-hand column on the answer booklet! I hope that wont cause problems?

my friend put the wrong candidate number + college said it was fine.
i also forgot to put numbers in the right hand column in loads of exams (especially in maths) + iot also said rule off after each question- which i never did. but i'm not stressing about that- just stressing about the rubbish i wrote on all my papers : (

The only purpose of putting the question numbers on the front is to make it slightly easier for examiners to transfer marks from inside the script. It won't affect your marks, so don't worry!

Actually, it DOESmatter if u get it wrong - in an unusual case, if someone else has the same name as you, and also forgot 2 add the candidate number, although this is very unlikely.
