    I'm not too sure, but I could've forgotten to write my candidate name. I'm sure I've written my centre number and candidate number, but I don't remember writing the name. I will talk to the co-ordinator on Monday, but for now I have no way to contact him and my nerves are killing me. Will my paper be cancelled?

    You have to get in contact with the exams office ASAP, but I have heard some offices manually check through each paper and fill in missing information on the front. What exam was this for?

    No idea. I've never heard/seen this situation before until now. Be positive and patient, maybe you haven't actually missed it.

    Id the number is there, then it will be fine. The exam officer checks them anyway and they will confirm its your paper by elimination. If it were me then I wouldnt be worried at all.
