3 weeks ago in AS OCR Physics exam my group was given the old formula booklets, which lacked 2 formulas that were actually needed in the paper. I thought that maybe the formula booklet just hasn't changed and my concerns were wrong. But then I observed that in one question I needed the formulas that weren't there. Again I convinced myself that I must've been wrong and perhaps we were supposed to know by heart these two particular formulas. But then after the exam I asked a friend and she told me she thought something might've been wrong with the booklet. She also had gone to our teacher and asked her if for the next exam we could have the right booklets. So I thought that everything was done and there's not much we could do about it as the exam was over. This is my first year in the UK and I didn't quite know that such cases could be considered. But a few days ago one similar thing has arisen regarding different exam. After that we knew that there is something like special consideration and decided to ask one teacher about the formula booklet and the one question issue, but he said it's pretty much too late. Do you guys know if there's really nothing that can be done now? I probably didn't lose much because of that though, maybe 1 point or slightly more as the question took me some time. But the thought of the situation really makes me go bananas and I have nightmares about missing an A by this one freaking point. ( Send some emotional support please!!!

Take it up with the exam officer.
You should have made them aware of it at the time as I think they have to lodge a requst within 7 days of the end of the series of exams, so Physics.
If this has happened again, then make a complaint to the school that exams are not being conducted properly. It's too late to take it up with OCR, but the school might check it out to avoid mistakes in the future and if they were wrong you might get an apology.
