    There was that time I was predicted almost all A*s at GCSE and came away with CCC.

    There was also that time I was predicted A*A*A*A for A level and barely scraped passes in them.

    Take your pick

    cambridge maths interview; interviewer asked me to sketch y = - x - 2 and I sketched x - 2. (I was doing really bad so they kept dumbing down the diffculty)

    needless to say I did not impress them and that interview went spectacularly poorly
