    If I get fed up mid lesson I always always get heat rash on my stomach so I just show the rash to my teacher and say I am having an alergic reaction to something. :ninja:

    I just pretend to fall over now. But one of my teachers makes me get back up again and carry on. My friend had a broken wrist and still had to do PE last year.

    one girl threw up in the middle of class once, after our rather sadistic teacher made us run around in the heat, and she made her keep on going because it was apparently a sign that she wasn't fit enough!
    I got off PE for two months though because i broke the bone in my fingertip. 2 MONTHS! for a FINGERTIP! i had a note from the doctor's so they couldn't do anything about it.

    There was a teacher who apparently would want proof if a girl said they couldn't swim because of "the time of the month". I can imagine it was true too, dirty *****.
    usually that meant just a letter from the parents

    In year 10 I told my PE teacher I had a history exam (although I didn't study history, but it was the only exam on that day). Managed to get away with it for a couple of days till my teacher found out I didnt study history...

    I have to say, my most ingenious way out of getting out of PE was when I turned up ten minutes late and said that I'd been throwing up in the toilets but I felt better now, but of course by then everyone was changed and the changing room door was locked. What a shame. Other than that my mum used to just write me notes. She's nice.

    Pretending to be Christian and trying to give up Physical activity which was making you obsessed during Lent is one I've tried! Not as effective as the Ramadan one though.

    The best one is "The Buddha said don't do anything that will cause you harm" and I tend to get hurt a lot while doing PE.

    I've got really bad ankle problems, so if you say that its a surefire to get out of it! Depends what sport.. Tennis, Basketball or Netball, i either blame a bad wrist or shoulder, or play for like five minutes and say the ball hit your wrist funny and its sending 'shooting pains up your arm if you move it' that's a great one!
