    or even better in year 7 i got threatened with detention for drawing on a white board during a maths lesson and i started crying in the lesson but she never gave me the letter so i survived but i did end up getting detention during year 11 cause in graphics i forgot to bring in my homework lol #badass
    Once you're in year 11 teachers do everything possible to get you into trouble 😒 but then again when you're in year 11, you just don't care anymore, people just square up to teachers😂

    everyone says D1 is easy yet I only just scraped a B for that last year cause the paper was a mess and so hard tbh
    I'm triggered from that.

    My unit grades for maths were AAE. You can take a guess at what the E was in. Ended up getting a C overall and nearly losing hope in applying to good unis.

    This year it wasn't hard. Just physically impossible to complete in time.

    Yh trust me I couldn't care less about my detention really cause it was literally just me sitting at a computer for 40 mins one day after school with all these other kids who had been forced to stay behind to meet these stupid ' milestones '

    Yh I was just glad I got a bloody B like I hardly revised d1 I just thoughht I would wing it and if I wasn't for doing FM AS I would've got a B last year which wouldn't have been good seeing as I'm going to do maths at uni ... I really hope you do better this time around !

    In primary school, we got told that you mustn't start a sentence with 'because'. GCSE level teacher: "Try mixing up your sentence starters; for example, start with the connective 'because'. Student: "But Sir, in primary school we got told you can't start a sentence with 'because'. Teacher: "Well, they were lying".
    In year 10, my geography teacher used to pick on me at least once a lesson. This time, he asked me to answer a question about freeze-thaw weathering (basically to describe the process) and I started my sentence with "because" since it was verbal feedback. As soon as I said "because" he cut me off with "ah! you can't start a sentence with because. when you're in an exam...blah blah blah" I ended up having to repeat my answer 4 times EVEN THOUGH IT WAS GEOGRAPHICALLY CORRECT, all because I started with "because" smh

    ~ this one i knew was a lie: my teacher warns me that i need to turn up on time or i will get a detention, so i tell him i dont care because a detention is only a punishment if I feel it is, and i dont really care. Im cool with staying after school for an hour or whatever. So he goes and tells me that universities get told about our detentions and wont accept me. I nearly facepalmed

    My attendance at college was 78% but I swear if I'd known how much it didn't matter it would have been even less.

    This question is a 'sure' question i.e. it WILL feature on the exam paper. (Unless you set it, how do you know )

    Teachers always promise sweets but never deliver or they say things like if you win you get a prize and then the prize ends up being ' the pride of winning '
    I have a huge tub of sweets in my desk now! I will never tell such fibs again.

    This is a golden thread. Join in with the discussion before 26 August 2016 to be in with the chance of winning an iPad air 2!

    I remember being in reception, so only about 4 or 5, and our teacher told us that a rocket was going to the moon that day and if we worked really really quietly we'd be able to hear it take-off..

    It totally worked. We were silent for the whole day, but never did hear that rocket go off.



    What are the fibs your teachers told you at school to get you to be quiet, or stop asking silly questions?


    Other golden threads:
    I used to believe my teacher genuinely had eyes in the back of her head. She was terrifying and i figured it was definitely possible
