    I wish it was I literally rubbed my eyes and wiped the water on some pages of my exams I tried my best to give it a runny texture so I get sympathy marks. Although I made sure it didnt obstruct my answers or was too messy

    No, they will mark you down. It happened to a friend of mine, she got 46/60 on her physics last year, but she cried on it and they reduced it to 23/60.

    Last year it was 50% mark reduction, I hear that this year it is 75% or possibly disqualification.

    Sympathy marks don't exist and if there are smudges on your paper then they might think that you spat all over your paper.
