    I've heard that in another school, an invigilator decided to make pot noodle in the middle of an exam. So all you could hear was the kettle for a few minutes and then her slurping noises as she ate

    Someone's phone went off in the exam and it was in my row so we had to be kept behind to check.

    I was so incredibly nervous, loads of people had their phones on them as they didn't pay attention to the 'Put all phones i bags' message. I really needed to pee during that time and I was so scared that if i went to the toilet they'd proper search me as they'd think I went to hide my phone.

    We were kept back for like 30 minutes after and they did a thorough check, patting down blazers and checking pockets, they caught two other with the phone, their phones didn't ring. They guilty guy got away.

    After that most people kept their phones in their bags, or I would hope.

    In two of my AS exams a phone went off had to relive that again. Whenever a phone goes off it's always in my exam.

    French speaking.

    We were meant to rattle off for three minutes in French. I managed thirty seconds before I realised that I had forgotten it all and sat there repeating "my name is xxx" over and over again in French. In the end, my teacher pressed the stop button and that was the end of the exam.

    I got a U.

    I was at the front of the exam hall and an invigilator leant against the wall near me, with her feet about a foot away from the wall. She then proceeded to slide up and down the wall, breathing very loudly and slowly as she did.
