    1% on a GCSE Maths test (not the final exam) was my lowest ever. I think.
    In A-Level, something like 55% for Psychology? Not sure.

    Let's hear yours.

    D in P.E I think the fact that I was on crutches during pratical exams had something to do with it..
    or it could be me not revising for the exam and being athletically challenged for most of my life
    Or it was all a conspiracy to fail the entire year( I mean nearly 50% of the year got Ds or lower)

    I once got a score of 10 UMS (U) score for one of the AS Physics exams I took - but, in my defense, I did break my arm five minutes into the exam!

    My lowest GCSE grade was a C in Astronomy. To be completely honest though... I didn't revise, so I deserved it.

    Erm if we're talking practice exams/mocks I got a U (37% ish I think) on my D2 mock last year (got 100% on the real thing though )

    If only real exams then 78% on Physics ISA last year.

    Unfortunately I used to have a very nasty habit of swinging on my chair whenever I was thinking about something. Turns out that the first question of the exam completely baffled me and I swung back a bit too far... and fell very, very awkwardly

    You'd think a Physics student would have more common sense than to swing on her chair, but noooo. Oh well. Served me right for being stupid, eh? Plus, the other people in the exam room got their grades bumped for the commotion. In any case, I've definitely learnt my lesson.

    (Also, did I mention that the exam was about forces? :P)

    Woah o.o

    (speechless!)

    Why am I imagining either:
    a) You were trying to see if your answer on the question paper was correct, and the question was about falling backwards on chairs and the force at which the person hits the floor?
    b) The question forced its way out of the paper and hit you, causing you to fall backward?

    XD

    It can be mocks, but it doesn't have to be. But wow, big improvement.

    Subject? Actual grade? (Or is this some other board that grades by A+, A, A- systems that I don't know of, or is this the American system?) Why cry? Troll?
