    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

    Well actually, my biggest fail was being predicted ABBB (or something like that) and coming away with UUUD for AS. Currently repeating the year. It's actually incredibly fun!

    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
