  1. When in doubt, choose “C”. ;)

    This reminds me of my Year 7 Science Teacher. Our exams always consisted of 10 multiple choice questions on the first page, and the answer to 2 was always (ALWAYS) “B”. Why, you ask?

    …Because he liked to read out the answer as: “2-B…. Or not 2-B. That is the question.”

    Every. Single. Time. That guy was awesome. :D

    1. “When in doubt, choose ‘C’.” Please tell me that’s a Summer School reference!

      1. Summer School was a GREAT movie! But I was pretty young the first time I saw it, and I remember that scene with the bunny rabbits traumitizing me a little bit.. :)

        1. Bunny rabbits? I’ve seen that movie lots of times (it was a summer tradition between my brother and me), and don’t remember bunny rabbits. Are you talking about the gore scene? Are you sure your young mind didn’t confuse it with Monty Python and the Holy Grail?

            1. I don’t know how I completely forgot about that scene! It’s funny…I missed your comment somehow, but last night when I went to bed the scene just popped into my mind. Great stuff. :)

    2. You had a cool science teacher. :D Reminds me of my History teacher. We ask him to do stand up comedy.

      He does it unconsciously. :D

  2. I remember completely winging some multiple choice exams, and then freaking out when my choices would start to make patterns, and would be like ‘oh that can’t be right!’

    1. haha! Oh, you just made me remember that I use to do that too!!!! Sometimes though, if I didn’t know a few questions in a row, I would try to make a pattern, or pick the answers that I haven’t picked in a while.

      Good to see you back on here Simone. I was beginning to worry about ya.

      1. Yes, I used to get answers wrong because I would look back and think “That zig-zag is just too perfect… I mustn’t be choosing the right answers here…”

        Damn patterns. Bet they do that on purpose, just to mess with your head!

      2. Oh thanks bekah, I’m sorry to worry you!!
        I’ve just been super dooper busy at work & never got a chance to leave any comments!
        Dont worry though, I still checked everyday & I’m still reading your blog!!
        I WILL get you a smiley though! dont worry i havent forgotten, just with wedding plans, time just seems to slip away sometimes!

  3. haha, i’ve never done that, but there were tests where i guessed about half of the answers and got a good grade out of it. xD

  4. My teachers would usually tell us the popular answer for that test. I think if it was English, it was B. Math and Science was C. Of course I had some of the coolest teachers ever. Which…I get to see some of them on Saturday at my bff’s wedding. She invited basically the whole world and a few of my favorite teachers have RSVP’ed.
    I don’t really remember much about taking test in school other than the teachers telling us that if we didn’t know then to pick B or C.

  5. “So Fetch!”
    (Just had to see the movie to know what you’re all taling about but will pass on the bunnies…traumatized by “Bunny Lake is Missing”, when wee child!)

  6. 9th grade history. Had not studied. No idea. Pure guesses. Got to grade the test myself. Put it through the scanner. Each wrong answer will make a tik sound as the machine makes a pink mark. I was expecting dozens of tiks. Fed it through – …tik …tik. Other side – ..tik…. A Miracle!!! I will never forget a moment of triumph. Awesome!

    1. makes me think i could go back to school and survive…CONGRATULATIONS and AWESOME!
      Unless you are a surgeon.

  7. Haha this one time in history class, I walked in and my friend came up to me, binder in hand and freaking out. She asked me “did you study for this test? I heard that it is supposed to be really hard.” and naturally, I had no idea whatsoever that there was a test. I took the test, had no idea what was going on, guessed on every question, BS’ed the essay, and got a 98. BTW, this is in a difficult class, too. Haha

  8. This reminds me of my first year statistics exam when I used to attend UTSC. I read myself out and still wasn’t sure but when the exam started in all honesty I wemt totally blank never got any answer to any question I tried to solve and yeah I guess my way throughout the test. I did get a C atleast it’s better than an F coz trust me I never knew wat I wz doing during d exam. LOL

  9. My crowning achievement in life was receiving a 90 on my final Honors Physics exam in high school. It was a 100 question multiple-choice test and I completely guessed on at least 30 of them, but somehow still got 90 right answers. It was quite the miracle!
