for one of my exams i did a question wrong so i wrote on the next page which was a "blank page"
at the end of the question i wrote "continued on next page - blank page no.19" but my brother told me they dont scan that part?
is this true?

Why didn't you inform the examiner so that they can make a special note of it? It is likely that the page will not be scanned UNLESS they noticed it and are kind enough to do so.

"continued on next page - blank page no.19"

Since you wrote that ^^... Theres a good chance examiner will notice and probably scan that blank page or get access to the real paper..

However, I'm only basing my answer off what I've read on the TSR.

I don't think Edexcel usually scan blank pages, or anywhere outside of the 'official' writing space. You should tell your school and see if they can do anything about it, but it might be too late now and you might have to cross your fingers and wait. Chances are the scanner-people will notice and they'll scan that page too, so you should be fine.

It says on the front 'only write in the spaces provided' and your teachers should tell you not to write on blank pages. Next time ask the invigilator for an Additional Answer Sheet and attach it to the paper at the end of the exam.

All the pages of your answer book are scanned in , even the blank pages (Edexcel) so I wouldn't worry too much about it.It woudn't be a good idea though to include working on blank pages without a note somewhere to say you've answered the question in a different place on the paper.

I'm talking about my Maths exams but the format might be slightly different for your subject but I don't think that very likely.

As you put "continued on the next page", at your answer, the examiner will know what you've done. You'll be fine.

couldn't you get another page to tag on the end?

tell your chief examiner. isn't there a thing where you can have it specially marked for w/e reason? i answered a paper in pencil on accident and my dad's mate(examiner) told him that they college will put it for special marking or something. that was aqa though, if it makes a difference
