Did anyone make any stupid mistakes in their GCSE exams?

I missed out on 2 marks in science because I didn't write down the correct equation for me to rearrange it and then substitute the numbers in. I did it on higher tier but not on foundation. I also can't do separate papers higher and foundation, I am more comfortable with combined science papers. What I did was invent my own equation with what the question was asking for as the subject of the formula and substituted it Guess it could be because I went more stupid and other factors and it's good I did foundation.

Hallo... in the real GCSE i left out 12 markers in my business and sociology exam. I had really poor time management, so don't worry it can still turn out well. I ended up getting 9s in both:smile:

It can turn out well if you did higher, not if you do foundation

honestly i did WAYYY worse than expected in my exams as i really struggled with time management in pretty much all of my papers (turns out i actually should've had extra time). i literally missed like 4 x 6 markers in geography and got a 5 (i was predicted an 8). i also missed a 20 marker in my english language paper 1. despite all of that im doing the subjects i always wanted to do in the school i wanted to do them in :-)
