    When we would play heads down thumbs up and I would never get picked to be on and my teacher would say 'don't worry you can be on next lesson' but I never was.
    Heads down thumbs up - what an amazing game though. Those were the days...

    "This dude got 20 A*s in his GCSE's and 7 A*s in his A-levels but was rejected from Oxford because he didn't do any extra-curricular stuff" - assembly at start of Year 12, so you need to do loads of extra stuff

    -"We don't care about extra-curricular activities" - teacher at Oxford

    Head of UCAS was reading my PS and said there wasn't enough extra curricular activities for Oxford. Mock interview - deputy head asked no chemistry questions and insisted Oxford would ask general questions about how I would contribute to the college O.O

    The biggest fib I was ever told was that the fleshy bit between thumb and index finger was where our wings once sprouted from when we were pterodactyls because they're what we evolved from Primary teachers are weird.

    But on behalf of the teaching profession: sorry guys. We'll do what we have to to get you to work. My year 11s are still waiting for the Freddos I promised them at the start of the year :shh:

    And the difference between GCSE and A level explanations kills us. We hate doing it but it'd break your brains if we didn't! The worst thing I have to do is teach it the way the exam board explains things rather than how stuff actually works. Bleurgh!

    In primary school, we got told that you mustn't start a sentence with 'because'. GCSE level teacher: "Try mixing up your sentence starters; for example, start with the connective 'because'. Student: "But Sir, in primary school we got told you can't start a sentence with 'because'. Teacher: "Well, they were lying".
