Have you ever written a message to the examiner?

    The other day in my psychology exam, I crossed out a line of one of my answers but then realised it was right and didn't have time to re-write it, so I drew a small arrow pointing to what i'd crossed out and wrote "Don't ignore." I'm not sure if they'll listen but without the sentence i'd crossed out, the rest of the answer doesn't really make sense so they can't really ignore it.
    Anyway, i'm just wondering if anyone else has written a message to the examiner in an exam before, either for a similar reason to me or to be funny or deviant.

    I crossed out an entire page of working before realising it wasn't actually wrong in my maths paper the other day, I didn't have time to rewrite it so I had to write the examiner a note then. Put a smiley face as well

    I always think to myself: "what will they think when they read this?"

    I was a cheeky sod and crossed out the 10 ms^-2 for the acceleration due to gravity in the question and wrote 9.81 ms^-2 on top of the 10 ms^-2 in GCSE physics loool
