What's the craziest exam story you have?

On exam day, everyone just wants to get the paper done with the best of their abilities. But what if something unexpected happens during your exam?

We've brought together some crazy exam stories for your enjoyment; may none of these things happen to you!

Nicholas, 19, student

I blew my nose too hard during my exam and it bled on the paper. The lecturer had to pause the paper to ask the other student for a tissue for me.

How much tissue would you bring into the hall?

Kris, 19, student

I had studied really hard for a mathematics exam. When the time came, I tried my best to do the questions even though I found them rather difficult.

I was banking on getting marks for doing the right equations, even if I did not finally get the right answer. I didn't think it would be that hard to pass.

You should have seen my face when I got back my paper and realised I got 0/50, with not even a single method mark.

Clyde, 19, student

During a test, two guys got caught for cheating, and when asked why their answers were the same, one of them said, "I heard voices" and the other said, "Divine intervention".

Cheryl, 19, student

Midway through my English paper in secondary school, we heard 'Gee' by Girls' Generation blasting from the front of the class.

I remember my teacher's face turning pink when he realised that it was his own phone that was ringing.

From then on, the teacher's phone was always on vibrate

Carina, 19, student

Like any typical Singaporean student, I had heard stories of electronic dictionaries dying during the exam, just when you need them. During my Chinese 'O' level exam, I decided to bring two electronic dictionaries and two traditional book dictionaries.

My mother had laughed at me and called me an "auntie", but both my electronic dictionaries actually died on me during the course of my paper. I was relieved that I had brought the extra weight.

Michael, 24, NSF

I had stayed up for several nights studying for a math paper, and was determined to score for it. On the day of my exam, I realised I had left my calculator at home.

Long story short, I didn't do very well for the paper because I could only complete five out of the 30 questions…with long division.

Brandon, 19, student

During my 'O' level history paper, I realised that none of the topics I had studied really hard for had come out, so I tried my best to answer with general knowledge and the little I knew.

I thought it would be nice to leave my marker a note thanking them for the time it would take to look at my paper even though I had completely written rubbish.

Brandon's apology seemed to work, he scored a B3 grade for his paper
BRANDON FELT THE ONLY WAY TO SAVE HIS GRADE
WAS TO SCORE SOME SYMPATHY POINTS WITH THE EXAMINERS.

Natalie, 19, student

During one of my final papers, I felt confident that I would score well as I had faced very little difficulty during the test.

However I immediately knew that I was doomed to fail when the paper was collected and I realised there was a page that I had left completely blank.
