    In one GCSE exam last year, I know someone who wrote for a picture of a quarry with explosion dynamiting the rocks, and was asked to explain it, he wrote:

    James Bond is being chased by Dr. No

    Also in mocks someone wrote for this question:

    "What is this equation called?"

    He wrote, "ideal gas equation, or Gerry to his friends"

    The best one I have ever heard was an answer to a scottish higher exam: "What is bravery?"

    The candidate wrote three words, got up and walked out:

    "This is bravery"

    that story is made up, we had the same story about a pupil at our school in ENgland in his exams. It never happened, it is just one of htese rumours.

    Fair enough, however judging by most of the alleged answers in the link they could be made up!

    true, although I have known some people who completely misread the question, and don't think about it logically before writing down the answer.

    I heard one like that. Probably not true though. Apparently the question was "Why?" and someone wrote the answer "why not"

    pilots vs engineers alledgedly all true
    PREAMBLE: After every flight, pilots fill out a form called a "gripe sheet", which conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during the flight that need repair or correction. The mechanics read and correct the problem, and then respond in writing on the lower half of the form what remedial action was taken and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humour. Here are some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems as submitted by Qantas pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers. (incidentally Qantas is the only major airline that has never had an accident)

    NB (P = The problem logged by the pilot) (S = The solution and action taken by the engineers.)

    P: Left inside main tyre almost needs replacement.
    S: Almost replaced left inside main tyre.

    P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
    S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

    P: Something loose in cockpit.
    S: Something tightened in cockpit

    P: Dead bugs on windshield.
    S: Live bugs on back-order.

    P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent.
    S : Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

    P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
    S: Evidence removed.

    P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
    S: DME volume set to more believable level.

    P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
    S: That's what they're there for.

    P: IFF inoperative.
    S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

    P: Suspected crack in windshield.
    S: Suspect you're right.

    P: Number 3 engine missing.
    S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

    P: Aircraft handles funny.
    S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

    P: Target radar hums.
    S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

    I think it should be 'If this is a real answer, then that is a real question'. Otherwise the super cool Oxford person isn't answering the question and would get zero marks for it.

    I think i've seen this before somewhere.

    Q: How can you delay milk turning sour?
    A: Keep it in the cow. [He got an A]

    Technically that is right though, actually it's quite a smart answer. He probably got marks for that because the examiner wouldnt be able to say it is incorrect!
