    I am sitting here sh**ting myself. I thought I did an alright paper and handed it up. Just realised I forgot to put the ****ing calculator number on it! What can I do? Is it the same examiner who corrects paper 1 as paper 2. Gaahhh. After all the grinds if I fail maths, I will go on a rampage and do some unsavoury stuff to Ruari Quinn. Advice?

    Me... or the number? I feel like a full on r-tard, but knowing the people in my centre I'm sure I'm not the only one

    If forgetting to write the number of your exam calculator is your biggest worry then your grand. It really couldn't matter less.

    Hmmm... Never even thought about it that way.... Maybe I should leave it...

    If you have no calculator number on it how can they prove that you used one?

    Hey you're completely right! I may have forgot it? But then again.. I couldn't do that square root of 1681 in my head

    Dont worry about it I forgot mine too but I dont think it really matters! Just put it in on paper 2 and then the examiner might notice!

    Just write the number of the calculator on Paper Two and state that you used the same calculator in Paper One.
