We've all seen those comedy answers to exam questions, but who's actually taken the mick and written some comedy answers to exam questions?

Today, I had to resit my computing exam from January, even though I passed it and have got a C overall. I decided I couldn't be bothered to answer the questions properly, as I hadn't revised and didn't need to do well. So I wrote some funny answers.


Question 1: Desribe the differences between 3rd Generation, and 4th Generation Programming languages? [4]

My answer: 1 Generation.


Question 2: Here is a list of colours. The Computer is going to use a serial and binary search to find white.

green, red, blue, purple, white, black

(i) Explain how it would find white using a serial search. [2]


My answer: It looks at the list and points at white.

(ii) Explain how it would find white using a binary search. [3]

My answer: It sneaks a look at the serial's answer and copies it. It too points at white.


Question 3: What is a derived class?

My answer: A class that is derived.


You must have written smething funny for one exam...

They can refuse to mark the paper/ disqualify the subject if inappropriate material is written. I've never known it to happen but was told about it and decided not to write a random essay of my choice in general studies.
Many examiers will be okay about it, but it only takes one.
This course of action is not advised.

No, but they can refuse to mark other papers from you as a punishment for wasting their time.

You got me worrying now!

Note. I didn't answer all the questions silly. Although it was a 1 and a half hour exam, and I finshed in 24 minutes.

You should be all right. If they were like the ones you posted he could think that is what you thought the answer was.

One time in a mock gcse exam at school, on the front page, where you had to write ur name, i wrote 'it doesn't matter what my name is'. The teachers still marked the paper and it was like a high A, but they all wanted to know who the idiot was who didnt put their name properly!

in the GCSE Edexcel Non-calculator paper, when it said "Mr. Patel has a car," did anyone else have a burning desire to write something like "Good for you, Mr. Patel. Well done"?!

I had a friend that, in a french exam, when asked to describe her family or something, as part of it described her invisible friend "Bob". She wrote a whole load about how he's invisible and so can sneak up on people etc. It was a mock exam, though.

I remember on my GCSE physics exam, it asked for the chemical equation for CaO with silicone dioxide. And i looked at my calculator and put CaSiO for the answer, and coincidently, that was right!

Glad you got away with it. For Gs this time (need 12 marks for an A) I thought of answering a few questions for the marks than writing an essay on the railway industry, including the use of barrier vehicles and modern developments in signaling. The examier will learn more from it than the correct answers aanyway - unless he knows about rail and disagrees of course!

i have never written a deliberately silly answer but tend to get carried away especially in general studies and just rant about whatever is on my mind. i did well last year though so its obviously a good technique....?!

in my gcse history coursework i was looking at the other day on my first page of an essay about communist china i wrote about Dubya, sweet and sour pork, the olympics, mcdonalds, and loads of irrelevant stuff. however my favourite bit was where i described china's leaders as sounding "somewhat brainless". not really funny buit you can tell i was bored writing it
