    Don't worry there is literally nothing you can do. You will be able to tell an inaccuracy on results day for yourself!

    Note that examiners have to mark every single page of a script before the marks can be entered to the system however so if you're worried about them not seeing an additional page or missing pages hopefully this fact settles your mind. Good luck!

    Of course, it will happen, because examiners are humans, and humans make mistakes. However, they are professionals and pretty much know the markscheme inside and out, from how many papers the mark, so the chance of marking incorrectly is minimal. So just sit back, and relax. Examiners are most of the time teachers/tutors etc., so they do have a large amount of knowledge in the subject they are marking for. They have to go through a large amount of training, too, having to mark several sample (non-student) papers correctly, so it's not like you'll have people that are extremely unexperienced marking your aper.

    Yeah me too. This year they're making it tougher on remarking apparently. Fingers crossed the examiner is competent.
