    fucked up

    Is it right to say "I fucked up in (on?) many questions/sentences"?

    I'm trying to understand the usage of phrasal verbs in general, if you have some tip on phrasal verbs I would be glad to "hear" it...

    Re: fucked up

    That's quite a strong word to use in that context. I'd expect people who screw up exams to use some expression like 'screwed up'. 'I really screwed up my answer to no. 1' - no preposition. And if they made a mess of the whole exam... - 'made a mess/hash/botch of'.

    Re: fucked up

    In North American English,
    Ex: I fucked up on the test.
    Ex: I fucked up on question 4.
    There are two pronunciations: fu[k] + [t]up, fu[k]+[d]up
