I thought it would be really clever and funny to ridicule the AQA R.S questions stuff like: 'what do religious believers think about pollution?' and I answered: 'I don't know, ask them' then there was 'what's the main cause of prejudice?' and I wrote 'stupid people' and was pretty rude about them throughout the paper...yeah...managed to get myself an E when I was predicted A* :D Thankfully it was only a mock and I managed to complete the real thing refraining from any witty comments about the irrelevance of the questions.

Don't make my mistake, my head of house had to come and 'have words' about my inappropriate communist references and quotes.

Doing a math calculator paper, finishing, thinking all the answers were weird, but the questions were easy.

Then, you spot that your calculator says Radians, rather than Degrees.


Also, my friend had the most awful cramp in his leg. He had to stand and shrieked in pain, we first thought that he was laughing.

I got 4+1 on an algebra paper wrong...

Also, a friend of mine sat an exam and the question was:

'Can you describe the relationship between breathing and cellular respiration'

and she put " Nope, sorry I can't" :')

AS psychology - i'd been wanting to drop it for ages but parents & teachers etc thought i should just do the exam, so in the exam i wrote stupid answers (one of the questions was 'what is a tyrant' so i wrote 'someone who fancies being a bit of a rebel') & comments on how i liked the invigilators outfits haha, & then for the big 50 mark question at the end i wrote about how i hated psychology & hoped that the examiner got a laugh out of my paper!

i was quite proud of my U haha ;)

one of my english literature teachers tells us the same story over and over again about a girl who made a massive mistake in her exam. the exam covers about 12 books but you only answer the questions on the two you've studied,  but without reading the instructions she attempted to answer every single question on the exam paper... on books she'd never even heard of!

In my science mock someones table fell apart and landed on top of them and my friend sat down and discovered that he chair only had three legs.

My geography teacher told us that last year someone answered all 12 sections on the paper when your only supposed to do six, he i still got an A.

In my maths mock I once added up 3+7 wrong I wrote it down as 9, so the whole of a 6 mark question was wrong. I managed to coorect it in the last 5 minutes of the exam.

Also, my friend who is expected to get an A* told me she forgot how to divide 40000 by 100!
