Hello,

Today I sat the OCR GCSE Christanity. At the end of the booklet there is lined paper so that you can carry on writing if you don't have enough space. I did this but I got confused instead of writing 1ami wrote the page number instead. What will happen, is the OCR paper scanned or will the examiner realise my mistake.

Hi there!
I am doing Edexcel for RS so this may not be relevant, but according to my teacher, each question on the paper is marked by a different examiner. Was there 2 questions on the same page? If so i'm not sure what will happen :/

Best of luck anyway!

Thats not correct , papers get scanned and sent to the examiner to mark electronically. did you write " Page 9 " or just 9 ?

Hey dude don't worry. I was told by my RE teacher that the examiners had to do a great big cross across all pages to show that they have read and marked it. I also think it will be obvious what question you were answering. Also how did you find the exam? I sat the same one and it was much harder than the past papers

I will try and make myself more clear as it seems not a lot of people do ocr. So there is 3 question blocks but you only answer 2, that part was fine. Each question blocks is 1a-e. on the first page you have question a,b, and c. Then on the next page you have question d, and question e has its own page. I used up all the space in the booklet, so at the back of the booklet there is lines, in the margin you're supposed to answer what question you had continued such as 2a. However, I wasn't sure if it meant page number or question number so I did it wrong. Now I'm really worried

I'm not sure, do your school do ethics,Islam,Christianity and Islam. I found the paper quiet accessible it was much nicer than the ethics paper. I liked the 12 mark questions. I did core beliefs and special days and pilgrimages.

They arent stupid and are used to marking exams.
If you wrote 9 when there was no question 9 that will put them on alert and it will be an obvious mistake that wont confuse them. Dont worry.

Focus on your next exam.

Okay that makes me feel a bit better, I've got marks gospel and Islam soon so hopefully I don't make any mistakes. Does anyone know how ocr marks papers, does 1'question go to different people.

Hey man don't worry, I did the exact same thing and asked the exam invigilator afterwards and she said it's fine, because the examiners aren't trying to mark you down so they will be looking for any credible answer that they can see and match with the questions
Relax bro, you're fine

I still feel like I'm explaining it badly, I was supposed to write 3e in the Margin but I accidentally wrote 8e as it was page number 8 question e.

Btw dont you fill out on your exam paper which questions you answered? Also they are bound to look at the extra space section, especially if you ran out of space. its normal just to write continued.

Okay thanks. For ethics we had to write out the question number for every question but not Christianity.

Hi,
I do OCR exam board for RS and my teacher said you have to write the question because different people mark your different questions so you have to write your question your page number is not relevant to the marker but fingers crossed they may be nice and try to find marks. oh and i'm sorry if i've scared you
