Loose a mark would seem the obvious one

if the examiner is kind you will lose 1 or 2 marks due to communication or standards of working/ lose no marks at all as he'll understand and be kind

however if the examiner is an ******** he'll think its the other question and thus it will be completely irrelevant to the question and you'll fail

The examiners arent completely stupid, they should realise that you made a mistake with it and mark the other question, I wouldnt worry about it

I remember during my exams, I wrote the wrong question number and answered a different question. I realised after the exam, and the school secretary contacted the exam board. They said that the examiners will know which question I'm answering and just continue to mark it as normal, ignoring the incorrect number. So everything should be OK.

No, just don't worry about it until results day. If you get very low marks then send it for a re-mark; though that's unlikely. Today in history I started answering part C in the area for part B, though I did make a massive note on the top of the page. :p:

Just be happy it's over...

Yea...

Basically, I just started answering on the second page and then realised, panicked, got over it. I actually think I ****ed history up; two years of serious, hard-work for nothing, eh? Well, I'll find out on results day.

Honestly, I couldn't give a ----. The test is over, the exam I was least worried about screwed my over. I just want to see what happens on results day. What's worse is knowing you've screwed up (even a little), it makes exams feel like they've never ended until you receive your results.
