My friends at school reckoned that you could blag any weird word (e.g. 'malarky' or something random like that) into a geography essay so we tried it. For instance, they gave me 'raggamuffins'.....'Over the last 30 years, ghettoisation has occurred in Birmingham in parts like Washwood Heath where there has been a large inmigration of raggamuffins...' Have any of you blagged a random word/phrase into an essay/piece of work?

I decided to see how many song titles I could get into my General Studies exam paper. I got about 17 in 2 sides of A4, including The Drugs Don't Work, If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next, Unfinished Sympathy and so on and so forth...

During my GCSE's we played a game to de-stress (looking back we didnt know what stress was!!) where we would choose words to put into our answers e before we went into the exam...there was no prize for doing it, just pride, but we started it for our year 10 exams and carried it on for the mocks and real exams. It only really happened in history but it was fun. I remember having to include 'jam' and 'crisp' and there was one more that i cant remember. I used 'jam-packed' to describe the munich putsch and made some reference to branding (crime and punishment through time) by saying 'burnt to a crisp' in the actual exam. Im not sure it relates to the question, but that's what it made me think of! x

It is but what is more interesting is your teacher's reaction. Do you think they will have any clue as to what's going on when they read all these essays!

Yeah, in our GCSE French Speaking our teacher made us all make at least one really random comment (can't remember what mine was though) and in my German speaking I made sure I got 'gherkin' in there somewhere cos my teacher didn't believe that I could.

I was cruising through my Spanish GCSE oral a couple of years ago and it was going absolutely perfectly but on the very last question, I went blank and paused for half a minute and swore under my breath. My teacher rewound the tape and turned up the volume to see if we could hear it for a laugh - and we could! Thank God I still got an A*!
