    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!
    I did Death of a Salesman and Blake for my AS exam last year, wrote serious essays and ended up with 75/105 I should've tried the rant instead! Especially because it's true. I guess that's why you're doing English at Oxford and I can't wait until my synoptic's over this afternoon so I never have to do it again :rolleyes:

    ooof that exam was a beast. i did the general theme question, about erm....i cant remember..but it was the one that wasnt biff/old man. haha.
    i definitely rambled. and it was the first time i'd written a chaucer/miller essay without notes and in exam conditions lmao.
    yeh had shakespeare today. did hamlet.

    managed to put in "frailty, thy name is AQA", and put a question mark on the "there are no questions printed on this page"

    i would have done more but i was writing like a maniac to fit all the essays in lol.

    That's a complete and utter urban legend. The story varies slightly, but is false all the same.

    My History teacher at GCSE used to tell that story as truth, though. Silly woman she was.
    What is the definition of bravery? (3 hour final philosophy exam at oxford or cambridge)
    This is.

    Is this a question?
    If this is an answer.

    Just remembered something from year 10 science.

    "Name component x"
    Answer : "I think that Vladimir suits it"

    "What is its purpose?"
    Answer: "To confuse me"



    Then in chemistry...

    "To what group to chemicals x and y belong?"
    Answer: "The Chemical Brothers"

    From a History coursework report:

    One examiner lamented the intrusion of slack mondern language:
    There was also some sloppy use of language: "Things began to go pear-shaped for the Third Duma", "When the war began, the fun really started", "The Protestant and Catholics were constantly causing agro (sic) over religion


    Admittedly not as good as yours but it amused me when I read it
    In one of the A Level Spanish ones... "Some students got confused with translation and talked about murder victims being stabbed with spoons and lying in pools of 'sangria' (as opposed to 'sangre', which means blood).

    Not an exact quote, that one.

    I love the examiners' reports, they're hilariously sarcastic.

    In my drama exam about A Doll's House, I came very close to writing the potential hilarity of casting Jonathan Ross as Dr. Rank.

    Think about it

    Actually, I just re-discovered my science papers. One particularly charming answer was in physics, on the same paper as my previous quotes (though they were chem)


    "What equipment is required to make a nail into an electromagnet?"
    Brogan's answer: One suitable large common rat.

    "How is the equipment used to create the electromagnet?"
    Brogan's answer: Feed the nail directly to the rat while holding its jaws open with a cocktail umbrella.

    "Draw a diagram to explain the previous answer"
    ... Oh, for a scanner right now :laugh:
