It just came to my mind and want to ask you something that really bothers me. Will a question in exams be normally marked when you do first part (b) and then part (a)(the two parts not being connected)? Cause I did by mistake part (b) in a question and then part (a). Of course I clearly indicated it, but is it all right?
Thanks

Yes, don't worry about it. So long as you've answered the question, you'll get a mark for it. Examiners want you to do well, they're not as strict and precise as they're made out to be.

Are part a) and b) part of two different questions? If they are then the question number should be clearly indicated.

This question was made of two parts (a) and (b) (each part different). By mistake I did first (b) and then (a). But I clearly indicated 4(b) and then 4(a).(it was question 4)

In maths, I always answer the questions inm different orders. If I do say a few questions and then realise that a part which I did could be wrong, I just cross it out and do that part later. As long as you have clearly stated the question and part then you'll get the barks. It's all part of doing exams, whether you intentionally or unintentionally do it.

Sometimes marks will even be awarded for a question answered correctly on another part of the paper if sufficient knowledge is show. Examiners try to award as many marks as they possibly can - they were students once, you know!

Don't worry so much, I go all over the place with my answers, whatever order I can answer them, and provided you clearly indicate 3a) ii), 4b)iv) etc you should be alright.

It also helps if you put this in the space indicated on the front of your answer booklet if you are going "round the houses"

It's interesting isn't it, the doubts you start to get way after the exams are finished. Yesterday I freaked out to think that I may have accidently missed out a page on my french, this would be supported by the fact that I finished ages before anyone else. I suppose it's just exam nerves though.

If you read the front of the paper, it should say that you can answer the questions in any order as long as you label the questions clearly, which you did, so don't worry.
