    Would that have made a difference in the marking because I accidentaly did it on a writting heavy subject and the grade came back excedingly low (it was a foreign language) one that I am fluent in. And could I, and should I, get it remarked?

    It wouldn't have, no.

    That shouldn't have made a difference. How far away were you from the grade boundary? You can get a remark if you genuinely think you did better than the result you got, but bear in mind that the result can go up or down, and if it doesn't go up by at least one grade then you won't get a refund.

    A remark is a reasonable shout, depending on how important this exam is to your overall goals.

    If the front of the paper said to write in black ink, then unfortunately you may have disqualified yourself. If you break the rules of the exam, they have the right not to mark it. Plus all papers are scanned and marked on computer now, and I believe the machines only pick up black ink.

    That's not true. If the scanner can't pick it up, the examiner will have asked to see the actual script.
