    I done my edexcel biology exam today. When I saw my exam paper it says foundation tier. I thought I was meant to do a higher tier so i told one of the examiners that I had the wrong sheets. So she gave me a higher tier exam paper. When I got home I realised that I was meant to do foundation -_-. Am I in trouble?

    The question is, do you think you did well on the higher? If so, I'd assume you're better off.

    im not sure how that will register on the system. one person i know wanted to change foundation to higher and they did all sorts of paper work and computer changing and you had to pay.

    I dont think they'll register it because of all the names and numbers on the system. I mean your candidate number is probably registered for foundation. Ask your teacher tomorrow just to be safe

    I once came out of an exam accidentally did the Alevel paper instead of the GCSE one. Its calm thought I got an A* and towards the end told the Examiner they told me its fine I gave it to them they sent it off and I managed to complete my GCSE this year got 100 percent. Its all good mate. I also go to both Cambridge and Oxford YK I'm your typical TSR Member.

    This happened to a girl in my class today and my teacher said it should be fine but you may have to pay a minor fee as your name and candidate number was not entered for higher or something like that.

    Probably not; I'm sure you'll be fine. If anything make your teacher contact the exam board so they can change your registration; hopefully you did well in the exam!
