haha :( oh well, can't believe i forgot to go back and correct my mistakes, remember kids, correct any mistakes you made on the spot, rather then leaving it on the last minute.

Damn that sucks. I guess your HSC is doomed. Better start getting ready to say "You want fries with that?" for the rest of your life now. LOL jk. I think I did a similar thing. Doubt they will care if it's just one word. Seems silly to penalize you for it.

Depends on the rest of your essay, if it's good you might lose a may mark.
It won't make a huge difference, also depends on your handwriting and if they can tell what era you actually intended

@OP

I did something similar in my trials.....I was doing a related text for belonging, when I wrote POLAND in it somewhere (from Skrzynecki), and so the sentence didn't make sense....my teacher circled it and put a big quesion mark....haha

I Lold.

But you'll be fine dude, don't stress. The worst case scenario will be that they'll deduct possibly 1 mark off your response. But I wouldn't know, I'm just using some common sense. Keep studying and stay focus!
