Just had a fairly interesting exam (if such a thing is possible) but finished just after the no-leaving-in-the-last-half-hour rule and got bored so read my desk... whoever Corey was had some issues lol.

I know that in college a few years ago people would count the bricks in the wall of the sports hall. I beleive the official figure was bout 367 breeze blocks per one section of wall.

what do other peeps do? cos I feel that my research skills exam next week will be a peice of p*ss... our lecturer even told us to bring something in to read once we've finished!!

I've foung the trick is to try and time the exma so you can leave before they announce that theres 10 minutes remaining and noone can leave.

At Marlborough, during a GCSE exam, an invigilator was surfing porn on a computer at the front of the hall. Unfortunately he didn't noticed that at the time it was connected to an electronic wideboard. The porn site was projected onto the wall in the middle of the exam! There was chaos.

Needless to say he was put on leave, but I've heard he's returned now!

I always like to laugh at the people who've decided to dress up for the exmas. Isn't something comfy far more pratical?

Other things I've done are play about with my graphical calculator in a mock (a bit boring and geeky I know, but more fun than just sitting there).

We had a pharmacology exam once and I finished half an hour early. I decided to count the number of lights in the room, then the number of lights which weren't working, then see what fraction of the lights weren't working. Then I drew a little plan of the lecture theatre (which I later rubbed out). I mentioned to one of the professors about half the lights not working, and it seemed as if he had counted the lights which weren't workig as well.

I fold my arms, cross my feet over, lean back in my chair, let out a huge sigh of relief and relax. Maybe even catch a few winks.

I look around the hall, giggle at people who've gone to sleep, kick the floor and get scared by the teachers who suddenly appear behind me as I'm in the middle of daydreaming... Oh and i read the desks Well I used to now the desks are cover in this thick paint to stop people writing on it so they scratch into it instead...

Take a crossword if you can, then pass notes asking for the answer to twenty one down. If caught play it on.

I'm another desk reader: some of the mentions are quite funny, along with all the usuals (Failed Higher Ge 79, Failed SG Maths 86, Failed AH English 99 etc.) occasionally you get bits of shakespeare or poetry that people have memorised for their English exams. You sometimes also get conversations spanning several decades, normally with people ****ging off other's taste in music/football team etc.

I always end up with rude jokes on mine (and no I didn't write them)... and my best mate's older bro's initials from years ago... or else people going 'your mum' then someone else writing 'no your mum' and other 'great' stuff like that
