Messed up on form number?

edited May 2011 in AP Tests Preparation
I took my first AP test a week ago, so I didn't really know the process yet. We had a terrible proctor who gave bad instructions. She told us to write the form number for the answer document (which is like 4HBP), but she told us to write the numbers under it and not write 4HBP. I'm not really sure whether this is a big deal, seeing as all the tests seem to have a same form number, but I'm wondering whether it'll impact anything.

Also, I didn't have labels for my free response so I just wrote the numbers in. I asked the proctor whether to write it in pencil or pen, and she didn't know, so I just went with pen. Does it matter? I didn't have labels for this test, so would I expect my scores to be delayed?

    I'm pretty sure the form number is at least somewhat important, but as long as you bubbled in the right exam you're taking it probably won't make a huge difference. And you are not supposed to use pen at all anywhere on the answer sheet.

    Thank you. I wrote in pen on my free response packet because other parts of it was written in pen.

    You should be fine. The form code's not a big deal unless it's one that has a Q or an R. Writing your AP number in pen should be fine, too, since that's what my proctor told me to do when they lost my labels.
