    So I asked for extra paper and finished one question on the front side of it but wasn't sure if I was going to add more, so then extended another question on the inside of the extra paper booklet. Never did have time to add to the question on the front side so leaving a massive gap before having another answer over the page. Now I'm paranoid that they wont check and the answer on the inside wont be noticed so won't be scanned. Can somebody reassure me that they will find/give suggestions of what to do it so I can stop worrying about it.
    I don't know what's up this exam season, I'm worrying about every tiny detail after each exam and getting really hung up on what I cant change.
    I mean, if they don't mark it and my grade seems abnormally low I could just ask for a remark and make sure that it is known that there is something on the inside of the extra booklet, right?
    Somebody else must have done this, I'm just being stupid aren't I? Hopefully, I just need reassurance

    Papers get scanned nowadays and they won't choose which pages to scan, they will do the whole lot. It is highly unlikely that they will skip over a page when it's on a screen in front of an examiner. Now I've never done this but you have to remember that thousands of students take exams every year and it is pretty much guaranteed that this has happened before. They will know to look out for these.

    Anyway, like you said, you can always get a remark if you get a suspiciously low mark.
