If you crossed the answer and wrote the correct answer they will mark it, even if you crossed your answer out it would be marked.

1. Yes
2. Yes

Why in earth do you think the mark wouldn't be awarded if you wrote the correct answer in the space provided for it?

Was the exam a maths exam? I'm assuming it is. I've been reading through marking schemes recently, most questions you get 1 mark for the correct answer, despite what the workings say, and to be awarded the other marks, you need to show correct workings. It doesn't matter if there are incorrect workings also, but as long as they see certain things in your answer, then you get marks for them. Also, it doesn't matter if it's bracketed, everything written will be taken into account

You sometimes get marks for workings even if the calculations are wrong, but the method is correct. The only times I've seen it say "only give mark if working is shown" for the answer, are for questions like circle theorems or some multiple choice, because they want you to prove that you actually understand the concept, and not just guessing

Having marked Biology scripts, I can assure you that if the answer appears and is correct (or the marking points are made in the answer) you will be awarded the marks - answers often can be a bit of a mess and markers are used to careful reading.

I imagine so, however, I've never gone through a biology mark scheme before.
First of all, don't stress about it now. You've done the exam and it's finished, going over every detail and worrying won't change the mark, leave it in the past and try to not stress about it (easier said than done) and try to not think about it until results day

If it will give you peace of mind, Google past paper mark schemes [insert exam board here].
I don't know about various exam boards, but I know AQA has past papers, mark schemes and examiner's reports. Click HERE for the biology ones. Have a read through one or two and see what the standard tends to be Remember that every exam board is different in the way they mark

You're welcome - don't worry that the answer was a bit of a mess or a bit choppy - so long as the correct answer appears, you will be awarded the marks, no question.
