Now, I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place but I need someone out there to help me feel better and stop having hysterical laughing/crying fits. Moreover, I'm not sure if TSR is the place to find other people who sometimes make mistakes in exams as everyone on here appears to get straight A's.
I'm a first year and I've just had an exam. I've written an answer to the question "How far do you agree that Indian nationalism is a patriarchal ideology?", now, brace yourselves, because what I did is very stupid. Stupid doesn't even cover it. I, in my petrified state, have mistaken patriarchal for patriotic. Hence, I've written an entire essay on why Indian nationalism was communalist and not patriarchal (thinking it meant some type of patriotism). I've laughed and cried so much that I'm now drained and wondering whether I should get in a box and stay there.
Now, has anybody out there ever made a ridiculous mistake in an exam? Anybody want to make me feel better?!
My best friend managed to write 'conservationist' instead of 'conservative' about twenty times in a politics essay last year. Fortunately it was only a tutorial essay, though, not an exam essay... hee hee.
