    As generic as it sounds, I did actually slag off Justin Bieber in one of my exams (I think it was General Studies - Cultural Studies Paper). I got an A in that exam, so I can't say it was a bad decision.

    In my general studies exam I argued that plants might have feelings so it is immoral to eat them. Whenever I get into philosophical/ethical discussions, I start pondering all sorts of bullcrap. :facepalm:

    Inspired by the General Studies thread where people are talking about how they just wrote crap.

    So, what is the most ludicrous thing you have ever wrote in an exam? Also, which exam was it?
    Made up quotes in an R.E exam... And still got the A* :smug:

    Not any major ones, but in a Mock GCSE tech exam I went on a very long rant on a question that was talking about global warming. I refused to answer it... back then I was very passionate about how it seemed/seems to be a conspiracy haha. Teacher wasn't overly pleased.

    Not an exam but official GCSE English coursework in year 10. My attitude towards english in year 10 was bad and I didnt realise this "creative writing" coursework was going towards my grade. I made some stupid modern take on cinderella where gok wan seduces the prince who has gay vibes about him. Got given a D and in the next years parents evening I was summarised as an uncreative writer hahaha.

    Got my act together in the end and A*'d the last exam. Overall a B though. Same thing happened with history too

    A girl in my class, in her GCSE Eng lit exam said that Atticus (in to kill a mockingbird) was black. The WHOLE class cried in laughter.

    (For those who haven't read the book, the whole point of the book was the controversy of a white laywer (Atticus) defending a black man back in the day.)

    got 100% in an AS general studies exam in which every question i wrote about how much i hated david cameron. I even think my final essay ended with the line 'he should be ashamed of himself'.
    examiner was smoking crack when they marked that.

    This isn't mine, but one of my mates once wrote 'Mel Gibson' as the answer on a Biology exam. That was it. Mel Gibson.

    In a Biology GCSE mock exam... it was a question about fungi and why they are of interest to scientists, and I said "Because fungis are entertaining chaps to be with" :facepalm2:

    Not an exam but....

    My mate got an offer from UCL and a week later a questionaire was sent to said person, a word was mispelled in the questionaire so they decided to correct it.

    Rejected

    GCSE Maths Mock. 3 x 5 = 8.


    Normally, simple mistake that would be overlooked after a while, but as I took the exam a year early, (got A*) and have gone on to take Maths and Further Maths at A level (class of 2 people -_-) it gets brought up constantly. I still maintain that I misread my own handwriting...

    That being said, we (incl. teacher) seem to make an awful lot of similar mistakes in our further classes.. 1x1=2 made an appearance last week.. heh.

    Not a statement but in GCSE PSE exam there was a question about the environment and I accidentally put pubic instead of public lucky I had enough time in the end to proof read it.

    Not sure, but my second year Globalisation exam (in which I scored 39%) was probably full of ridiculous statements.
