    Hi!

    I sat the IGCSE Physics exam today and for one of the questions (a four marker), I realised I did the right working and the right answer (which I confirmed with friends and on the unofficial mark scheme) but stupidly at the last minute I changed my answer and put a different one on the answer space. If I didn't scribble out my original answer and the examiner will still see it, is it possible to still get four marks out of four or is the most three?

    you will get something if you didn't cross it out, but if you wrote your new answer on the answer line, they will have to credit you for that somewhat

    It is dependent on exam boards and the course etc - some exams allow for transcription errors which will give you the marks
    Fingers crossed!
