An exam board has admitted making a mistake in a physics A-level exam sat by students at around 1,200 schools and colleges.
Four schools have contacted AQA to complain after the paper, which students sat yesterday, contained a typing error.
The exam board has admitted a mistake was made but said the question could still be answered.
An AQA spokesman said:
We meant to ask students to compare a 150 kÎ© resistor - not a 150 Î© resistor as it said in the paper - to a 300 kÎ© resistor.
At this stage it looks as though most students haven't been affected by this, but we're letting our examiners know and will make sure it doesn't affect students' grades.
