    well this isn't my mistake or choice, whatever you want to call it, but this boy in my geography told my teacher he didnt want to go to the exam that day because it was his birthday...

    If you got the name wrong, but said the business, they will give you 2 marks for both answers.

    on my french mock the question asked ''why was the baby in the article injured?'' and i saw ''soeur'' and ''balcon'' and i didnt understand any more so i said the sister pushed it off the balcony. still got an A though HA
    Lol! In one of my french last papers there was a question about guide dogs. It asked for things that the dog could do, and one of the acceptable answers was 'bring the phone to the owner'. The amount of people who put 'answer the phone' was actually quite something!

    In geography last year I left a six marker to come back to at the end and forgot all about it, even though I had 5 minutes when I could have done it. So I ended up getting an A, and I was only a couple of raw marks off an A*...

    in my maths exam a few days ago I had like 2 minutes to answer a 5 mark question so i started panicking

    Time was up by the time i put pen on paper so i had to duck down and estimate the answer I estimated writing 50 or 55 so i ended up writing 50

    when i went home the answer was 55....fml

    Something similar happened to me. I missed a question in my history exam thinking I still had time at the end. Ended up completely forgetting about it up until the last two minutes where I wrote a line. I got a mark for that line but I was one mark off an A*! If I had answered that question I would have gotten a much better grade overall. It's incredibly pisstaking

    Start of the year Geography mock exam, I guessed the answer to 'why does a river erode?'
    The fish don't have enough food so they eat the river banks. The more starved fish, the more the river erodes. I got named and shamed!

    I have done some mistakes for example couldn't believe fluoroacetate would stop the TCA cycle by merely inhibiting aconitase. Therefore I thought harder than necessary ending up with a wrong answer.

    Did all the working in a computing exam correctly for a stupid, simple binary question.

    Accidentally missed off one of the 0s in the answer box.

    Examiner was not generous.

    Cost me the A*.
    Wow, what a **** that examiner was!
