I just realised when I was writing something in an exam, I used more examples than what was required for the marks of the question. I just realised one of my examples was wrong, but the others were right. Question is, will I lose marks if SOME of my answer is wrong but the rest is right and is enough? and yes, I know. I did waste time!
thanks guys!

Well, if part of your answer actually answers the question fully, then I don't see why you'd lose marks. If there's something incorrect along with this, I still don't think you should lose marks.

You'll be fine hopefully =)

Markers can only give you marks not deduct. So assuming your examples related to the question asked, you may gain marks.

seriously?...
weren't you told that if you've answered the question enough, you get the marks?
so obviously if you've answered the question to acquire ALL marks, then why would you lose marks for the rest of the info you put down
