Hi. I was also going to use a friction pen for my GCSEs when a girl in my class told me it can rub away over time... Our examiners also told us not to use any friction pens for the exams... I suggest u tell your school and see what they say. It may be too late but hopefully it won't effect your grade. Good luck

Friction pen ink disappears when it is in contact with heat (when it gets photocopied). I know this because my teacher erased a A3 landmark work by accident (laminating it) which I made me get really annoyed (he destroyed 5 hours worth of work).

Contact the exam board or your school immediately

This is coming from a guy who used friction pen from year 7 to all the way to year 10

I hope everything turns out alright! Don't stress too much about it (try and solve the problem asap)!

A lot of papers often get checked at a HQ before they are photocopied. So there's that

Contact the exam board and/or school

Do you think contacting the school and telling them what’s happened is the best thing to do?
