    When i'm doing an exam and have some time left at the end, or during a question i have no idea about i often write notes or express my annoyance to the examiner - I couple of times i've even come up with some god-awful puns or jokes based on the subjects and chucked them in at the end. I know i'll never see how the person marking it responded but i like to do it anyway, sometimes just a "thanks for marking". Am i totally alone in this and a very strange person or do other people do similar things? Cheers

    I think they would probably get annoyed.

    I did that for my critical thinking paper but as a mark of protest against the subject because it's pointless.

    I always felt the urge, but refrained in case the examiner didn't see the happy side of it.

    Yeah, or those "THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS PRINTED ON THIS PAGE"
    I wanted to write "Duuuuuuuuuuh" next to it, but I thought better of it. :p:

    Please give some examples, I could do with a laugh.



    At the end of my Keats resit I was tempted to write "in conclusion, Mr. Keats senior should have used a condom" but managed to stop myself.

    I've written apologetic notes for the state of my handwriting after having had to scrawl out of exhaustion after the 8 A4 page mark, in an hour and a half exam.

    "Why do you never see mathematicians at the beach...


    because they have sine and cosine to give them a tan."
