So, I just realised, in the IAL Economics unit 1 exam I sat for this Monday, I forgot to put a cross in the box, while answering a question from section B.
Section B was such that, it contained 2 questions, Question 9 and 10, worth 48 marks and were required to answer only one of the two questions. Now, I answered question 9, but forgot to cross the box as I was in a hurry and simply started answering the question!!!
Will that cause a problem for the examiner while assessing?
*fingers crossed * 😞😞😞😭😭😭

I doubt it would cause a problem; it will be obvious to the marker that you answered question 9 and not 10. To make sure, I would probably contact the awarding body in some way.

I'm so worried that, I would have walked into their office right now! But living in a country far away, it's almost impossible for me to contact the awarding body I.e. Edexcel. Last time I mailed them, 4 months ago, asking something, I never received a reply from them.

I'd just try and see what response you'd get. Email really early on Monday morning (or whatever time in your country equates to really early on Monday morning in the UK) so you'll be top of the inbox when whoever mans the email account begins work; that might work in your favour. Also, if you don't get a reply first time, keep hammering them, and try as many different relevant and appropriate emails (or even calling them might work) as you can to increase your chances of a response. It's better to have peace of mind rather than sitting with your stomach churning all summer waiting to see if you've lost 48 marks!

I also found this response in the "I didn't put cross in Economics paper B part.. Will this be a problem?" thread (https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=4514848):

I think it's mainly done for the convenience of the marker as they have lots of papers to mark and so it helps them to get to the questions that need to be marked quickly. I wouldn't worry too much about it if you've only written something for one of the questions
