IGCSE Chemistry: Will I be penalised if I make a spelling mistake in the name of a chemical?

A candidate’s level of English is not assessed in Cambridge examinations (except English examinations), so examiners will not penalise candidates for misspelling the name of a chemical, so long as the name is still recognisable. Extra care should be taken with similarly spelt chemicals such as ethene and ethane.
