For my OCR Biology exam, I answered some of the questions with notes to the examiner and messages about how much I hate Biology... Do you think my paper will be disqualified?!

You won't get disqualified, but the examiner may be a bit peeved off that you roasted their favourite subject

You'll give the examiner a good laugh, at least.

I would laugh at that.

I wish bonus marks existed for your humour.

Why would you do this?

Normally stuff like that is ignored, but if it is deemed inappropriate (sounds like it is) then you could get an official warning and if it was deemed offensive then they could deduct marks. Not the brightest thing to do.

Good one. Like saying how much someone hates the subject is grounds for an official warning rofl.

To the OP: Dw my dude, I'm pretty sure you're probably not the first or last person to ever do this.

Are you saying I am incorrect?

Do you actually know what the rules say?

Do you even know there are rules to deal with such situations?

I think you need to chill out with the scaremongering. No need to get heated on a forum man.

PS: I won't be replying anymore, I'm not here to start an argument.

Can you tell us what you specifically wrote; if it's something light hearted, then it should be fine, but if you started swearing or something related, you may get DQ'ed

Unlikely to be disqualified, but the examiner might not mark your paper positively and may not give you "the benefit of the doubt" on some questions.

There was a question about an experiment that someone should do... and the question was what experiment should this guy do...
And i answered with: He should take a gun, put it next to his head and blow his brains out, so GCSE students dont have to learn about stupid experiments that theyll never do.

It isnt scaremongering. you should read what I wrote. I stated that they normally ignore stuff like this, but there are rules for such situations where they deem the responses to be inappropriate. That makes them eligible for a warning and then it increases if the remarks are mildly offensive and for which the penalties are 2-5, then theres a further level of sanctions at 6-9 for more serious infringements.

This is correct, but you seem to know better.

Its from JCQ the Joint Council for Qualifications, which covers all the main exam boards.

They will probably ignore it, but if the comments start to get out of place (obscene or offensive), then there is the facility to sanction you. Just do your exam and leave the comments at home.

I dont think what you write was offensive, maybe just inappropriate and immature, so in the unlikely event they dont just ignore, then a possible level 1 warning imo. Its probably not worth the paperwork

It should be the same for every single exam board.

Again, exam scripts are there for you to write write your answers in them. You shouldn't write stupid stuff, or even draw pictures. Several people got told off in their final mocks for drawing pictures. They were told that their examiner could refuse to mark their paper if they saw them.
