You answer sheet will definitely be sent for correction and for sure it will be checked and there wont be any problem so just stop worrying and focus on your next examination.
Writing set name on the answer sheets just do ease for the teacher who will check your copy but if you haven't written it then that doesn't mean he will not check it.So, just be relaxed and best of for you further examinations.
