Do you lose marks for incorrect reference?

So I just submitted my EPQ and I realised a few days later that my bibliography might be wrong.

For harvard references its meant be like author (year) title, but for mine i did author .year. title. To be honest i thought it would be fine cause i was just using google scholar citations, but if its not how many marks could i lose?

Depends really. If you were consistent you might not lose any marks at all, but it may only be one or two.

No no actually your way of referencing is also correct. I did mine the same way as you did and it is called the Harvard Anglia style of referencing. Take it from me, I did 53 references and got a perfect score in the EPQ.
