    So, I'm an American currently living in the UK. I am aware of the different spellings but I was wondering if examiners are able to consider the fact that -for example- I spell color without "ou"... or will I get marked down for 'SPAG' (Spelling-Punctuation-And-Grammar)??? Just really need to know if I need to start studying the different spellings for my GCSEs so I don't miss out on marks.
    -Thanks in Advance!

    It's likely you could use SPAG marks for american spellings so learn them if you can
