Writing over the lines in GCSEs

In a lot of my GCSE exams some of my answers went off the lines in the blank space right above the next question or just the blank space below the lines. I didn't write outside the box (where it says do not write). Will my full answers still be marked? I didn't put an arrow or asterisk to show I went off the lines.

I did this to
And so did a lot of people! (There is rarely enough space)
I wouldn't worry as long as it not in the "Do no write here or perish space"
You're fine

Only thing,
If you are overly concerned about this then I would advise you make good use of the additional answer page - There were times where I didn't even bother answering the question where it was on the question paper and just used the additional space as I know there wasn't enough space for me.

To clarify;
You're fine!
