Do you get marked down If you show your workings in pencil but your answer is in Pen ?
CIE asks students to write in pen to avoid working fading during the process of shipping and collating the exam papers. Your exam paper will still be marked if you have written in pencil.

If the Exams Officer notices that a student has written in pencil, it is their job to photocopy the exam paper and send it along with the original to CIE. So if your Exams Officer has done their job correctly, you'll be fine. And even if they haven't, you should be OK anyway.

hey guys! what if u highlight some part of one question by accident!? :( i know its off topic but im really worried..
Hi!
We're told at the beginning of every exam in my school that using highlighters or correctors would be considered malpractice. They even tell us to hand our highlighters in to make sure we don't use them in the exam. I have no idea what the penalty might be though, i'm sorry. D:
