I'm worried about all these method marks they give out. If you skip from 1 step to another without their intermediate (for which they give a mark) will you lose that mark?

For example
http://www.mathsnet.net/asa2/2004/fp15exam_5.html

Between lines 4 and 6 or the solution they have another step which I didn't include. Does that mean I definitely wont get that method mark and only have 7/8 marks for that question even though i did it right?

Generally if you've got the correct method and the correct answer, even if you skip a 'step', you'll get the marks. It's when you don't get the correct answer that they go back and look for possible marks to give you (usually method marks) if you've used them.

With a few rare exceptions, a correct answer will always get full marks for an Edexcel A-level maths exam.
