the lead is 0.5mm hb if that helps I'm not sure if that is allowed? it says on the candidate information that you need a pen and a hb pencil but would that include mechanical pencils with hb lead???

Do you mean through the whole paper, or just some questions?
yeah as long as they can read it when its scanned. if you think about it, there are some questions where they specifically ask you to write in pencil so as long as you pressed down hard enough and weren't writing super faintly, they'll be able to see

I'm not quite sure how you did that tho, it does say on the front of the paper and also invigilators do tell you - can't believe the invigilators
didn't pick you up on it tbh.

If they can't see when it's scanned, they're supposed to send it to the higher examiner who will mark the paper I believe! So try not to worry!
