    I done an English language exam a week ago and the task for the writing section was write an article for the school magazine on the following topic: "should teenagers have part-time jobs?" and about half way through I wrote something like "you know, teenagers just need to get up of their arses and do something"

    Surely who ever marks my paper will have a giggle? I would love to mark English papers for that reason as some candidates responses would make me laugh!

    Having lived with an AQA marker for many years, I can assure you that markers have a laugh at the scripts. Usually for all the wrong reasons.
