    Ahhhh nope. Edexcel Geography? AQA French Reading? AQA Sociology? OCR Physics Unit 2?
    why dont we all do it in our general studies exam as A) the majority of people will be taking it and B)it's not as important to fail on cos no-one really gives a toss.

    waddya think folks?


    p.s.
    during my maths gcse i circled the "x" everytime it asked me to find x. i got an A:eek:

    EDIT: i just remembered about this story i heard where a guy wrote on his philosophy exam to the question "what is risk?", and he put "this is". nothing else.
    he went to oxford

    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.

    I sometimes leave a message for the examiner
    Today was GCSE textiles I wrote a small passage about how AQA are stingy in the amount of lines they give you to write and how 2 hours for a textiles exam is uneccessary. :rofl:

    Lucky I don't have to do general studies or critical thinking for AS next year

    crap. this thread is totally out to get me.
    This SITE is out to get me. My revision for Welsh tomorrow is lying right next to me, but I'm drawn into discussions about winding examiners up, Jeremy Clarkson, kissing family members, and various other random topics that are in no way going to help me get three A's.


    Damn procrasination habit.

    Those pages marked "BLANK PAGE" are a gift.
    i always wonder who came up with the idea to print something on a blank page.

    clearly not a blank page anymore. that person was an idiot.
