I didn't leave 2 lines space between each answer in the English language exam. It says you should leave at least 2 lines space between each answer. I only left one line space and didn't leave any space between one answer. I wrote the question number for each question though. Will this be okay? I'm a bit worried. Thanks.

You will be ok, but why were you unable to follow simple instructions?

Me too. I have a slow processing disorder so I forgot the instruction the second I read it. As long as our question numbers were clear, hopefully we’ll be okay.

Don’t worry guys apparently it’s just because they use the two lines for comments, so it shouldn’t affect your marks

Oh and also there’s a psychology examiner on TikTok - she replied to a comment saying it’s absolutely fine and won’t make a difference and they only do it to help with scanning

That’s not an excuse though. My processing speed is in the bottom percentile and I still remembered to do that. You’ll be fine, it’s nothing to worry about, but that isn’t a valid excuse.

So just because you, with your specific processing speed, don't find it an issue - others can't? There are many reasons behind why someone may have a processing issue and therefore many different ways it can impact people; it's a bit unfair to hold everyone to your standard of what constitutes as an 'excuse' or not. It's also very easy to make little mistakes in the pressure of the exam room, especially given that covid disruption has meant that for many people this is their first serious set of exams.

Regardless Sav055, it will absolutely fine. I was a bit worried after one Literature paper because I used lots of extra booklets and was worried if I had labelled them all correctly/in the right order. Apparently, before they are scanned, someone will look at your work and make sure it's all in the right order/labelled correctly. The two lines thing is just to help with scanning but is not the end of the world, they are prepared for people to make minor mistakes like that.

Don't project your own experiences onto others, we are all different

I'm not using it as an excuse like that, it's my fault that I didn't go back and read it because I knew it was a problem for me. I'm just saying that it's one of the factors mixed with stress from writing as well as the learning difficulties I have on top of my processing speed. If I was using it as an excuse, I would have said 'I didn't leave the gap because my processing speed made me forget'. While I appreciate the 'You'll be fine' , my processing disorder may not be the same as yours. Nether the less, thank you for responding.

Thank you for this, it makes me feel a lot better about a problem I already hate let alone when I get pointed out for mentioning it. Stress does make it a lot worse for my learning difficulties so you summed it up for me pretty well Also, your explanation is really helpful. Thank you for being kind.
