ceciliebossow tells us more.
OP here! Wow! I didn't really expect this to be posted, but cool that it did! I thought I might explain myself a little (although it does not make this less stupid). This actually occurred a few months ago on a final exam that was marked by an outside examiner. Thankfully the final grade also took another exam and an assignment into account, so I still got the final grade that I had expected (and actually completing the question is unlikely to have improved the grade). Before the exam started, we had five minutes to read through the questions, and I only got to read until question 9, so when completing the questions afterwards, I completely forgot to check the backside of the examination booklet (where question 10 was located). I know it was my own fault, but I am always really nervous - almost panick-y - when it comes to exams. I felt absolutely terrible afterwards, when I realised my mistake, but there was not much to do, as the exam was over by then. Thankfully it all turned out alright anyway. Thank you for all your feedback! I have been reading through all the comments and I appreciate what you have to say - even when you say "YDI", because I know I do. It was not very clever of me ;-)

hey if you aced the rest of the questions you shouldn't get a bad grade. maybe...
I've been there too. Hopefully you did well on the first nine questions and still got an A.
Hopefully the teacher understands and allows you to redo the backside or somehow gives you extra credit.
Especially if there was an odd number of questions... People generally prefer having things in even sets of numbers, and most tests would have 10 rather than 9 questions. That also makes grading easier on the teacher. I've only ever had one exam that didn't have a round number of questions- it had 43- and the first thing I did was ask the prof to confirm that I wasn't missing anything because it was such an odd number.
