    why didn't you put your answers in the answer boxes? If anything you've lost one mark on each question for the answer but i'm not certain.

    As long as they can see your answer inside the boxer of the question it will be marked.

    No marks will be lost for not writing an answer on the dotted answer line.

    The marker has to look through all your work on that page to see if an answer is somewhere, even if you cross out the answer as long as you havent replaced it with a new one and it is still legible you can still get full marks!

    Also, you were worried about failing because of this. We can gather that you won't lose marks but even if you did it would be one mark for the answer and you'd still pass without them. You need about a quarter of the marks from the paper to pass, it's unreal.
