    In my GCSE Maths exam in Year 10 I wrote an apology note for the examiner having to waste their time marking my paper and how my mum would cut me off and I'd end up getting nowhere in life without a C in Maths.

    In my R.E exam I asked if they enjoyed reading bullsh*t and in my English Language reading paper I complained to the examiner at the end of the exam about the man who wrote the article using internet explorer.

    I get quite bored...

    I had a spare hour at the end of my Core 3 exam, so I wrote my examiner my current favourite little maths 'proof'. It wasn't particularly interesting, just proving the log rules. Oh, and another about perpendicular lines having inverse reciprocal gradients.

    I got 100 UMS. I liked Core 3..

    GCSE Maths paper, the question was something along the lines of "Johnny has worked out __________ to be true. Show how he is correct" I wrote "Johnny has too much time on his hands and should get out more"

    I got an A.

    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.

    U for Unicorn!

    He does believe. Your just very unfortunate the grading scheme isn't the other way round.

    I once heard a story of someone who built an entire English essay about a serial killer examiner that mutilated children's bodies if that counts. She came out with 10 A*s

    They told us at college that you get marks docked for writing silly notes because the examiner assumes you are wasting time :dontknow:

    'P.S. love your shoes, where did you get them from!'

    One of my tutors had the most amazing snake-skin high tops. They were bloody gorgeous!

    She wrote the website down and the price bless her. Still have that essay in my folder!

    Almost 'lol'ed, but I think I would've actually 'lol'ed if this examiner was someone external

    I only have the guts to do this in mocks, but I've done all the Facebook "legendaries". Circled X and wrote "Found it". In a proof question, I wrote the proof that women are the root of all evil. During English GCSE mock, the question was something to do with write it as if it were a blog, So I drew Google ads boxes everywhere. Then again, All my teachers have a good sense of humour.

    In GCSE last year there was this annoying maths question and I ran out of space so there was writing everywhere, and scribbles. It was basically a right mess.
    I felt sorry for the examiner so I put 'I'm really sorry about the mess, hopefully somewhere here is the right answer"
    Got an A* in maths in the end, got the question right too. good old GCSE times.

    In my product design exam, I drew a rainbow that took over the last question and begged for a mark for it.

    For a French prelim I was confident I had done well in, I missed what the speaker said for a listening question. So I drew a detailed picture of a hostage situation.

    I did this a few times in GCSE. I wrote 'IT'S A MIRACLE!' across my physics paper because I was so happy I understood physics for once.
    I also wrote on the first page of GCSE maths that I was worried my teacher would eat me if I didn't get an A.
    I got an A
