    No you didn't, why lie?
    You either didn't read my comment properly, or just love making assumptions.

    It was all done on mocks marked by my teachers. I also still did the questions, just included those messages as well.
    And obviously I knew the teachers were the type that would not get offended or get me in trouble for it.

    But you don't have to believe me, you sad child.

    Classics paper (marked by my teacher / mock)
    I wrote "I have such a bad cold, so unless you want me to die of all this thinking and writing I recommend you give me full marks for this question because I'm seriously so tired to do it" - it was only 5 marks and I managed to answer everything else correctly (A* :woo:) but I genuinely was ill which made it harder for me to work

    I am always doing this in my exams :L

    This year I've got 7 maths exams and I'm putting maths jokes and nerdy stuff in them all... In s1 today I drew a normal distribution graph and next to it a paranormal distribution graph (a graph with a ghost instead of a bell shape XD )

    Not really a note to an examiner, but still, AQA Level 2 certificate in Preparation for Working Life... serious stuff.

    One question was asking me what the effects would be on someone if they drank a lot of beer, I put "She'd be drunk." Then on another question about someone not having a job I said something like, "She'd have a lot of time on her hands, and may be thinking of funding an intergalactic invasion of Earth."

    And RE, at the end of one question I just put, "I've run out of ideas, sorry."

    In a DT test, there was a question on CAD/CAM and I had no clue... so I wrote: I don't know the answer to this question so I'm going to draw a cat instead, as they sound similar.

    I did, I actually got 4/12 for it, but I was also given a detention and made to retake the test -_-

    Well during a mock I had on Wednesday I had one HELL of a breakdown. I wrote this:

    "I'mgonnafailI'mgonnafailI'mgonn afail turtle (then a doodle of a turtle) I honestly believe I cannot do this, I have no idea why I'm doing Computing, please don't bother marking this. I'll be leaving now."

    I then handed in my paper 50 minutes early and walked out. True A* material right here

    Never in an exam that counts but in mocks or past papers marked by teachers I do it all the time, usually apologies for my awful handwriting or for going off topic, and also little notes like "i think thats a word" Haha

    I have a tendency to include hidden messages - never as explicit as you all! My latest religion one I included how a religion student achieving his grades and going to university would cause more pleasure than not doing so and would be viewed as a moral act in utilitarianism

    I'm tempted to write in one of my maths papers: I have discovered a truly remarkable proof which this page is too small to contain .
    I was having quite a bad day, this cheered me up, thanks for that

    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!

    That is so awesome, I didn't think they'd actually do that. You should look back on it everytime you feel stressed and it'll make you feel good. Well done for getting such a good grade too.

    Why? Couldn't you think of anything funny to say?

    "**** Maths" All over the pages
    "Why?" All over the pages

    I also recently coloured in every hole in letters on my physics test. It's safe to say I've failed my first year of Civil Engineering and I couldn't care less!

    I wrote help a lot and what is this, and I have crossed out parts of questions I don't like. Not that it has got me any more marks...

    I was forced to do Additional Maths in high school, so I bull****ted my way through a two hour paper and wrote a letter to the examiner about how our teacher was so bad that he didn't even tell us his name.

    It wasn't even a lie.

    I also refused to answer a Latin translation properly as I didn't understand it so I drew a comic book strip of what I thought was happening. Something to do with a giant snake. Ended up getting a B on that paper!

    Reading everyone's comments on here. It seems I must be the only to have sent the examiner nothing but wrong answers.
