Exam responses

I mark exam papers, some of the things the kids write can be … creative…

For example a few of them like to draw me nice pictures

Some of them seem to have a bit of a crisis in the middle of the exam

Some also seem to forget that creative writing isn’t required inĀ all exams…

Some of them haven’t quiet mastered spelling things, I blame spell chequers personally.

There are those brave souls, who in the absence of sound knowledge (or making any attempt to actually revise for their exams) have a damn good go at making stuff up that sounds right.

And then there’s people that are destined to either be computer programmers or doctors…

Kids are good at irony, although they don’t realise…
