lol yh on a past paper lol
I always write little notes to the examiner, never really thought much of it. Yesterday I wrote 'very close?!' next to my answer on a question where I needed to show the speed was 1.30 to 3 significant figures (I got 1.27), and also 'exact value- seriously?!' next to my working at the end of the C3 paper where you had to work with some crazy fractions
Yes when talking about Lollardy...not quite the same but still...

Also I wrote a note to an examiner in AS maths saying "I'm really sorry, I know I've done this question wrong but if I had time I would have used [insert method here] to solve it" and I got 93% =D

Plus in computing essay at uni I managed to talk about porn, reference TSR and use appendixes for cartoons while still getting 80% =D
One of our lecturers used LOL as abbreviation of Lender of Last resort.

He would put on the slide stuff like "The risk of such a liquidity crisis justifies the creation of a lender of last resort (LOL) eg after the bank failures of the Great Depression"

"As a quid prod quo for deposit insurance and LOL this requires banks to hold a certain minimum quantity of capital"

I used to get horrible migranes and what you said is pretty much my worst fear when it comes to exam time!


As long as you don't do what I did, which was think I was dying and refuse to get checked out so I wouldn't be diagnosed with a brain tumour... :rolleyes:
No i'm not witty enough to pull that off

yes, in a medicine exam.

They were supposed to ask us clinical stuff and they asked the difference between substrate level and oxidative phosphorylation. I put a line through the table and wrote "lol" underneath. :mmm:


the answer to that is pretty simple....

Or was it a 10 marker :ninja:

Aha, General Studies is a total non-subject. Yes, I used 'lol', I also mentioned Mickey Mouse and Diet Coke and came out with a B. My friend who mentioned Darth Vader got an A.
I haven't personally, but in a science exam my friend was taking, they asked her a question like, "How is the isotope gold-198 used to find pollution in a river" and she answered, "It would make the pollution sparkle." :rolleyes:

In another question they asked her, "How was the Earth's early atmosphere formed?" And she answered, "God."

Lets just say she didn't exactly do well in that test...

Nope but I've managed to put some song lyrics from the Horrible Histories TV show into my history coursework...they don't even make sense! But the teacher never picked them up so they're staying it.
