You should be fine as you can still get in the top band even with some minor grammar inconsistencies.

It would only be a couple of marks at most and if you believe that the rest of your essay is impeccable then I’m fairly certain it won’t affect your overall grade.

No point worrying now, ultimately it's down to the examiner

remember that the examiner gives you marks for the good things you’ve done so they’re not going to see you’ve emitted the apostrophes and immediately mark you down. If the rest of your essay is good you will still be able to get a relatively decent grade overall as you still have Section A

if thats true then they should count up to 14 marks and see ive ****ed up with my apostrophes, and then deduct 2 roughly.
correct?

Why are you making such a fuss of this?
Jesus Christ, people have done worse in exams. Not to be rude or anything but I find this worry ridiculous.
