    It's always fun to play that game with friends where you have to put random words into your exams. I gave my friend "stud muffin" for one of the general studies exams, while I had teapot. Managed to fit it in somehow 0.0
    i had 'hot and hungry jungle monkey' for history. I'm not sure my description of mussolini turned out to be entirely accurate...

    Hahaa, niiice. Apart from the occasional smiley face I don't think I've written anything to the examiner..
    By the last question of my chemistry GCSE I was really fed up and had no clue. It was one of those name substance x, y & z things so half realising the question mentioned ethanoic acid my answers were something like vinegar, sugar, tea & toast, haha.

    I made rather a lot of comments on my AS General Studies exams - mostly phrasing answers in such a way that they allowed me to have a dig at GS. An example of a moral value was, "The belief that we shouldn't manipulate fellow human beings: for example, extorting students by setting a pointless exam paper."

    Wrote, "AREN'T YOU BORED YET?" across the blank page. Ummm, what else? Two out of three essays entailed a dig at GS somewhere.

    I also made a massive rip up the middle of one of the pages. :p: Not quite sure what the purpose of that was. At any rate, I'm vaguely concerned that it might come back as a U. Meh.

    'twas the only worthwhile thing about GS, except for the awesome essay question about whether religious belief is an important part of life. Mmmhmm, that was a fine atheist rant.

    .The play has a dramatic structure. But not as dramatic as Hamlet's arse. Hot damn, i'd be the filling to that sandwich.'

    You could try and work in something about the significance of 'ham' in the title and how that affects the overall meaning of the play.

    Back it up with a quote and thatd probably get you a mark.

    O, That this too too solid question would melt,
    Thaw, and resolve itself into an A grade.

    I wouldn't risk 'having fun with the examiner,' especially if it were finals. It could affect the examiner's perception of the student negatively and the examiner might end up being stricter. Though someone I know once shaded all the o's, p's, d's, b's, a's and q's in all texts and questions in an exam. The tr was strict and I don't think his paper was even marked.

    Every English text I have ever studied has resulted in song parodies and/or adjusted quotes. Usually based around sexual innuendo. My teacher, surprisingly, loves me for it.

    I'm going to have to think of some good quotes for my Dr Faustus exam. I'm on high grades as it is, so there's no pressure in this one. Oh, the possibilities

    What other English texts have you studied?

    Urgh, Death of a Bloody Salesman. In my essay on that at AS Level, I wrote three pages about how Willy was a suitable name because he was a total twit, an idiotic moron who got no sympathy from me because all he did was delude himself, talk nonsensical gibberish, and ruin everyone's lives both within the play and of readers who were forced to study his stupid stupid life and death.

    I got 89/90. Hah!
