Exams Friday Funny

Students at my school here in Australia have just finished end of year exams.
I think some of them may have written innovative and imaginative responses to their exam questions just like these ones.
Here is some cutting edge survey data that shows what students really think about when they are in exams.

Here are some more great exam answers.
Did you know that the CIA government spying organisation has an entrance exam in the USA.
Here at Passy World we have uncovered the following YouTube expose video on what is required to become a member of the CIA.
Entrance Exams are also required for many exclusive Private schools in the UK and Australia.
The following are some very innovative responses to the "History" section of one such exam.
1. Ancient Egypt was inhabited by mummies and they all wrote in hydraulics.They lived in the Sarah Dessert and traveled by Camelot. The climate of the Sarah is such that the inhabitants have to live elsewhere.
2. The Bible is full of interesting caricatures. In the first book of the Bible,Guinessis, Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. One of their children,Cain, asked, “Am I my brother’s son?”
3. Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread which is bread made without any ingredients. Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. He died before he ever reached Canada.
4. Solomom had three hundred wives and seven hundred porcupines.
5. The Greeks were a highly sculptured people, and without them we wouldn’t have history. The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a female moth.
6. Actually, Homer was not written by Homer but by another man of that name.
7. Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock. After his death, his career suffered a dramatic decline.
8. In the Olympic games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled the biscuits, and threw the java.
9. Eventually, the Romans conquered the Greeks. History calls people Romans because they never stayed in one place for very long.
10. Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The Ides of March murdered him because they thought he was going to be made king. Dying, he gasped out: “Tee hee, Brutus.”
11. Nero was a cruel tyranny who would torture his subjects by playing the fiddle to them.
12. Joan of Arc was burnt to a steak and was cannonized by Bernard Shaw. Finally Magna Carta provided that no man should be hanged twice for the same offense.
13. In midevil times most people were alliterate. The greatest writer of the futile ages was Chaucer, who wrote many poems and verses and also wrote literature.
14. Another story was William Tell, who shot an arrow through an apple while standing on his son’s head.
15. It was an age of great inventions and discoveries. Gutenberg invented removable type and the Bible. Another important invention was the circulation of blood. Sir Walter Raleigh is a historical figure because he invented cigarettes and started smoking. And Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100 foot cutter.
Of course if you don't know the answers to exam questions, then cheating is one option that many students go for. Cheating is certainly rife in University examinations, as this action photo demonstrates.

Saving the best for last, here is one of our favorite Mr Bean episodes, where Mr B sits for his end of year maths exam.
Well that's enough of examining the funny things that happen during exams.
We're off to examine our "To Do" list for the weekend, and then write a few school reports.
