    Wrote outside the corners of a HSC paper

    I wrote outside the corners of the HSC physics paper, will they scan and mark? I didn't realise there were corners for scanning. I've only seen one or two sample papers on NESA which had writing outside the corners, the rest seem to be cut off on the corners or slightly before. I asked the supervisor i had and they said i was safe, but i'm not sure. Am i safe?

    I think they still scan the whole page to be honest

    Pretty sure they cut off just the grey part near the stapling of the pages. Whole page should be scanned, otherwise they would've instructed students not to write outside the box. Don't sweat it

    Youll be fine, i wrote outside the corners also. Anyways the exam only says not to write over the dotted line. What they do is just cut the spine to make it so they can just feed it through the scanner

    The expression was to think outside the box, not write outside the box! Nah but in all seriousness you'll be fine
