    I just done my economics unit 1 exam today and it went alright. But, the multiple choice section, I circled on the exam paper instead of the work booklet thing. After the exam my friends said a few others done the same thing and that they score 0 on that section out of 25. Gutted. I went back to the exam room and the invigilator was still there. I told him about the mistake I made on the multiple choice and he said it was fine and that others done it as well and he will collect them in together.

    I am still paranoid and keep thinking I am going to score 0 on that section. I am 100% sure the invigilator did not read out that we were not supposed to write in the exam booklet but then again I did not read the instructions carefully. Any thoughts?


    If the invigilator said you are fine, then you are.

    i did the exact same thing today too,i thought that paper was for the examiner there were like 50 boxes and i got confused, most people in my class said they wrote on both, it was only the last minuite i tried to fill in as many of the boxes but i only managed half.

    My friend did this last year, they just phoned her up and made her sign a few papers saying she accidentally wrote on the question paper. They marked her paper like normal, I'm sure you'll be fine.
