I get terrible hayfever - what, do I just tell the teacher I have hayfever? That would be strange. 'Um, I have hayfever, can I have 2% added?'

Only 5% for the death of a parent? If it's one percent for a headache, I'd have thought it would be quite a bit more for the death of a parent.

And I thought tales such like, "If someone dies in the exam then everyone gets an A" were just urban myths!

"Dear Mr Examiner,
I'm having a rough time today. I had a row with my boyfriend last night, and he stormed out of the house and drove off really quickly. Whilst doing so he ran over my cat, dog, tortoise, and hamster. It was truly terrible, I am sure you can see the tear-stains on this page. As he relaised what he had done, he reversed the car to come and assist me, unfortunately he ran over 4 immediate relatives, and 4 more distant relatives in the process...
I really can't go on, but by my calculations I have now gained 100% in this exam.
Sincerely,
A very troubled young lady."

I don't understand how you can say it! If you just ask them to put extra marks on, they would think you were being callous, considering the last thing that's crossing your mind after the 'traumatic' event is extra marks. How do you go about it?

That's a point. Seriously if you bought a hundred fish, stopped feeding them about 3 weeks before the exam... Would that count?
