    They just say use pen because it’s easier to see once scanned. Someone will just mark it on the paper if it doesn’t scan

    I used to be a CIE exams officer - you'll be fine. The guidance given to exams officers is to photocopy the exam script if it was written in pencil so that none of the working becomes illegible once it is transported to CIE.

    Even if your exams officer didn't do their job properly, it's very unlikely that any of your working will rub out unless you used a bad pencil
