That could possibly describe my DS as he takes things so literally!!!!

Had to stop half way down the list as I was laughing so much. At least they were answers, I work with someone whose son wouldn't even pick up the pen during his GCSE and wonders why he now can't get a job.

Very funny.

I teach 8 year olds. In a maths test there was a question where the children had to name and draw shapes. They had to draw a trapezium so a child drew a ladder with a person climbing it, a tightrope and a trapize with a person hanging upside down from it with an animal on a stool below it!

I remember in my GCSE geography exam we had a question which asked what a conservative margin was (it is the area between two tectonic plates in the earth.) My friend put the margin of votes for John Major and his party!

My friend thought that 'baking blind' was putting a cake in the oven with your eyes closed.:lmao:
We had one student who wrote about doing his work experience in a cart (court). His whole piece was about sitting in the back of the cart and enjoying his time in the cart...
