    Might sound stupid, but wobbly tables should be in there somewhere... they're a huge ****ing distraction, even with a wedge shoved under one of the legs.

    You think wobbly tables are bad?

    Try a girl screaming behind me in an exam, she put her hand up to talk to the teacher (i was like wtf is happening.. but carried on writing) and then the teacher screamed and RAN out of the exam room.

    Next minute, another teacher came upto me and went "excuse me, but you have a spider on your foot, do you want me to move it?" (i was sat in like a corner). So I looked down at my feet thinking "oh its probably tiny" and it was the size of like... a coconut. Seriously.

    I got up as quick as possible trying not to scream.
    The whole room was like "wtf"

    Funniest part was the teacher who ran out screaming. Haha x

    Why didn't she just move her foot and then kill the spider with her foot?

    To everyone. What is your worst exam experience?

    I have had quite a few bad experiences, one of the worst was in one of my GCSE French exams, when a person near me was using google translate on their phone and they left the speakers of the phone on, and suddenly a French sentence was said by translator. Then everyone started looking at me, and an invigilator started to walk in my direction, luckily when he got to my row he just said 'no talking'.

    Lets see who can figure out what that relates to...
    R is grater than 50* all powers of 2 starting at -1, hence it would be, 25, 50, 100, 200, 400.
    R is always greater than or equal to these. This makes no sense

    Ooh exciting! What accommodation have you applied to?
    I know! Self-catered en-suite for all 3 options. I put Lafrowda, St. Germans and then Rowe House as they'll be the closest to lectures. How about you?
