    Title explains itself! I made about 2-3ish spelling mistakes on my 2018 IGCSE lit exam and I wonder if I'll lose marks for them? I'm expecting a high mark because I've done my absolute best but i just woke up from a dream of which I got an A rather than an A* for the spelling mistakes now I can't stop thinking about it?

    You’ll be fine. I don’t think they’d deduct points from such few mistakes. If the mistake were consistent throughout, that would lose points so don’t worry

    2-3 isn't many and so isn't enough to make a difference

    might depend on question
    some questions are SPAG questions, so points may be deducted

    this is for eduqas, i'm assuming it's the same in edexcel, since most exams have SPAG questions

    And the other was to explore a theme
