I did the AQA RS and English Literature exam yesterday I wrote the entire thing with a gel ink rollerball pen (black) it didn't smudge or anything will this cause any problems?

I only realised after the exam that it specifically said not to use gel pen

I guess it will most likely be fine. I did all my exams with a fountain pen. The problem is, gel pens and fountain pens don't dry as quickly and sometimes smudge and will become illegible when your papers are photocopied.

As long as you don't smudge it at all, you should be alright. Don't worry too much!

I did this for biology. I have spoken to my form teacher and she said that they normally try to scan papers but if that doesn't work they will just send them. I hope it will be ok.

ok thanks, it wasn't a shiny gel pen or anything just a normal rollerball but it said gel ink rollerball. I spoke to the exams officer yesterday and they said it should be OK

you'll be fine, if it doesn't scan they'll send the physical copy, they only make such a big deal of it so everyone doesn't do it because it would take ages
