The harshest penalty you should have received would be zero credit for that problem only.

I had one student make an error of a factor of 1000 early in one problem, then later made another factor of 1000 error the other way such they cancelled out and bumbled into the correct answer. I awarded partial credit.

I sometimes used the wrong formula or way to work something out (not using long division etc) but still got the correct answer, they only gave me points for the answer.

This is funny I did the exact same thing in high school I used the wrong formula and got the right answer I got full marks with a comment from the teacher saying they didn't know how I did it but I get full marks and he even gave me extra credit for it luckily I decided to teach preschool and kindergarten so I didn't have to deal with that happening
