    In the GCSE and A-Level period, and indeed any other exams- not forgetting you Scottish Highers people!- there is always at least one exam which goes slightly pear shaped, usually due to something really exciting which happens during your exam.

    Sometimes it's a fire alarm, sometimes it's a phone going off [not from any of the candidates, hopefully!] or even a pigeon, as with a number of TSR students!

    So tell us:

    What has been your most exciting exam so far? What catastrophic moments have happened during exams?

    during my ICT exam this boy kept looking back and around and the invigilator had to tell him to face the front but then he kept looking back again because he found it exciting when people were leaving the hall...i know, it's really interesting

    But apparently last year during the exams there was a fire alarm that went off and people discussed the answers when they went outside which resulted in EVERYONE who was there getting their exam cancelled

    I think they just report the people to the exam board and tell them exactly what happened

    Haha a couple have been intresting:

    1. Business Multiple choice - it was easy

    2. Biology - after the exam the invigilator told me someone had took my bag from where I left it, took it home and then brought it back. I also got up and walked out before he said by accident embarrasing
