    We've all done something like this. How many of us have read a fraction on a tape then made the mark on the wrong side of the whole number?
    Are you running the drywall panels horizontally? Just sacrifice a few inches and cut it to fit. Or start from the other end of the wall and make the cut at the short end.

      Or you can sister another stud at the center and keep going with the drywall. But you still don't want both top and bottom meeting on the same stud in the center. You need to stagger the joints.

        I just hung a job the framers did the same thing. What I did was start the drywall in the center of the walls and filled in. Be careful with lay out so you don't end up with small peaces in the corners.
        Mine was 2' centers on metal studs 10' stand ups.
