    So since the exam stress season is literally here I think it would be nice to look on the brighter side of taking an exam. So I'm asking if anyone has had any funny experiences during an exam. This could range from strange exam questions to just messing around in the exam hall, what's your best experience during an exam? I'm curious

    Personally, I found it funny when you would make a secret communication with friends in the halls, like making a coughing or a whistle every now and again :P

    Great idea!

    (Probably won't help my procrastination, but oh well!)

    Well... I'm not sure if it counts as a funny moment, but last year in our year 12 languages exam, our exam invigilator handed out the wrong language exams and levels to the entire exam hall.

    I looked down at my exam, expecting to see a Spanish exam, and instead saw a German one. All of the students were really confused, and it was funny to see the invigilator panic as she realised her mistake and rush around trying to fix it.

    I've heard stories from friends where pigeons or random birds got into their exam halls

    Moments during exams I can remember from secondary was during the standard grade English exam, there was about 100 of us in the giant gym hall and someone coughed and then someone else would and then another would and there was this chain of about 20 people coughing after each other and then laughing :laugh:

    Another one was when someone's mobile went off during a higher exam and their ringtone was Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life and they got kicked out the exam and started singing it as they got escorted out the room.

    Not done any of my real exams yet.

    In every single mock my stomach seems to have realised that it's a quiet environment and no matter how not-hungry I am, it rumbles SO LOUD that I desperately stage coughing and flick my exam paper loudly to mask the sound. Never works.

    Here are some of my Dad's stories:

    - My dad hated his school. He was a total rebel (he's, like, the nicest, kindest but still kind of anti-fascist person ever now) and did not want to do exams. So what did he do instead? He literally ripped his exams up. He ripped every exam up into pieces and put his legs up on the desk and sat back, smiling. He regrets it now, obviously, and since then he's been a full marks social science uni student etc, but he sure didn't regret it at the time. His teachers were livid!
    - One of the people in his exams threw up all over the paper. Yuck.
    - One of the people had a seizure. Not funny, obviously, but the school was like, "Well, what do we do?"
    - One of the people sat down, opened their paper, and literally just ran out of the exam hall. They were just so scared of the questions and failing that they ran out and never completed their exam!

    I have a decent few

    I got into an exam and as soon as we began, my glasses broke - that sucked
    in another exam, I went to the wrong exam hall, had to run up a huge hill in the rain to get to the other one, late, and when I sat down, I gave in my phone. apparently this was a form of cheating to give it to them in this way and I got a penalty.

    I also once finished an exam *extremely* early and for about half an hour I was drawing a comic on the back of my exam script. it was pretty funny/good, I must say. when the examiners were collecting the scripts, as I left out the door I could see a few of them laughing at my drawings - that was kinda funny

    oh yeah, and once I forgot all my pens for an exam and had to pick one off the floor - bear in mind that this was uni (2nd year). it ran out of ink hal way through and they took about 5 minutes getting me a new pen during it.

    in all of these exams, or most of them, I did get 2:1 or 1st grades though...I guess I'm lucky

    Someone deliberately farted

    Someone fainted and fell of their chair (that was more scary than funny though)
