    haha! The examiners are all sneaky sods!
    They are!! One of our teachers was telling us about when he used to do invigilating, and what games he used to play. There are only three that I remember:

    1) Pacman with the other invigilators around the desks

    2) Doing funny things such as the YMCA (He's 20 stone) at the back of the hall to make the ones at the front laugh

    3) Standing next to the child they thought was the most insecure and reading over their shoulders

    I would have so much fun as an invigilator XD

    Quite frankly, I don't know where they get some of the people from! In mocks I have missed things which are crucial because I've been trying not to laugh too much

    Was taking this hard multiple choice exam that I thought i would fail so I wore a hoodie to cover my face and try to cheat.

    Then the smartest guy in our course happened to sit next to me and we aren't even friends, so I extended my chair so I could lean back, with my hoodie on so the invigilators wouldn't see my neck move and got EVERY answer and got 81% overall

    My old school, secondary, was full of interesting people. Was a real mix, and we all did the exam together, since we had 1 real hall . A lot of things happened there ...... Didn't even mention the fact that i was in set 1 english + R.E, but i had to sit next to set 5 for some reason ... The whole exam the person left of me and in front of me, looked at my paper. I didn't care since i doubt they would pass anyway, and didnt expect much, side note, GCSE R.E is a joke and i got a A* by making up so many things .

    I moved to a new six-form, and now its not to interesting really. All the lower set/ability kids are gone, so not much happens. My friend had to do his exam, with French A-level, since the hall was going to be used after our exam, and french A-level was the longest exam , he ended up being the last person, since not s single person used their whole time for french As-level. and the teacher watching them, he was in a special needs kind of room, for people who get extra time on french As-level., left him for a good 15 mins on his own. he was doing an essay subjcts and any time wasted would have hindered him, so he couldnt really cheat, though it would have helped i think. Teacher came back after 15 mins to tell him he has 10 mins, left again and came back 15 mins later and waited another 5 mins for him to ''write his name on the paper''. So he got extra time, but finished the exam 1 hour after school ended and an hour + after his class did . he did get a C on the exam, so the extra time didnt help.
    ah lol ok. Your old school does sound like it was very interesting!!! I sort of wish more stuff like that happened at my school. Ah your friend was a bit unlucky haha C is still ok though...

    while i was doing my AS MOCK economic paper my RS teacher was polishing a diamond engagement ring right infront of me. He looked so worried. The timing of all this nearly made me laugh.

    Haha that's epic! That would explain why the examiners at my school all keep reading over my shoulder... jokes

    A pigeon landed on the roof of the exam hall and they sent a teacher outside to chase it away despite the fact that the exam hall is like 10m high and there was no ladder . . .

    I once came into an exam an hour late, not because I had forgotten but because my alarm never went off lol .
    I also have extra time in my exams and so one time the exam invigilator said "times up, put your pens down" but I wasn't really listening and I thought she only meant for people without extra time, and so she came up behind me and whispered into my ear "put your pen down before I disqualify you" and I literally jumped out of my seat and everyone was staring at me-I never been so embarrassed.

    These were for both my A2 maths exams, last year
