Your funniest/most annoying moments involving invigilators? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'll start it off:
    One of the invigilators thought he was the "guy" and tried to make my year be quiet...5mins later...he leaves the room and calls for backup...was the funniest thing ever...

    as for most annoying:when invigilators stand in front of the clock and wont move their head and another one is when you get a small desk and your a big guy...really didn't help me...

    People wouldn't be quiet? :lolwut:

    But... it's their exam. At risk of sounding like my old teachers, you're only wasting your own time...

    My personal funniest moment was when I realised I'd misread a General Studies essay question to say "faeces" instead of "faces", and my entire answer had been quite literally full of s***. I couldn't stop giggling, and the invigilator (who had the campest, most bizarre voice I have ever heard) came over, stared me really earnestly in the eye, and just went "if you're laughing at yourself, you have an issue".
