    In a Core 2 paper, I couldn't get an answer to part of a question so I just wrote "Let's assume that the answer is 2" in order to carry on with my working for the next part. I looked up the answer in the mark scheme when it came out and it turned out to be correct which pleasantly surprised me

    Tad aggressive. I was just asking the question as it seems rather adventurous and optimistic, that's all.

    I once wrote 'I don't think I can do this' after I scribbled a paragraph out in my GCSE English Language exam and I started again underneath and got an A*. The school got the script back as an exemplar and at the side the examiner put 'Yes you can'. Honestly, best feeling I've ever had. A stranger having belief and faith in me!

    'Hi Examiner, hope you are well. Sorry for my sloppy writing from hereon in, but 1.5 marks a minute for 90 minutes simply isn't fair game.'

    In GCSE RS there was a question about why people would want to get confirmed (in a church, I can't remember the exact wording) at the time I was about a week away from getting confirmed as a Catholic. I decided to tell the examiner this

    Wow didn't realise people did this. I got told I'd seriously get penalised for it if I wrote notes. But regardless in my mechanics exam last year I wrote a note to my examiner saying that I have a migraine and how unfair it was, and drew a unicorn in the next answer space. I got a U. He either had no sympathy or doesn't believe in unicorns.

    In my Maths Unit 2 GCSE retake paper, I wrote a message on the last question (which I could not do) which constituted of "Sorry for my stupidity - I don't think Maths is my forte."

    3 marks off an A



    totally didn't cry :emo:


    Also, this isn't a message per say, but in the English Language GCSE exam in January I did a little smiley face at the end of each question. Got an A*!

    C4 exam. Saw the final 8 mark question and genuinely couldn't even understand it.
    I ended up figuring it out eventually (much to my relief) and felt a bit too cocky so I wrote, "I got 99 problems but this ***** ain't one". I even drew the giraffe from 64 Zoo Lane on the edge of the booklet.
    I ended up getting a B, two marks off of an A. :unimpressed:

    Do we realise that the exam script has to be checked by more than one examiner?

    I think an examiner told my English teacher, who told us one lesson, that if you write any notes to the examiner, then your paper automatically is sent to the chief examiner. I don't know what that means, but honestly I'm not going to risk it...
