So i had my first A level exam this morning: the totally useless General Studies

An hour and a half of time and i finished in half, so i set about covering 3 whole pages of my answer booklet with elaborate drawings of mudkips, lol wut pear, lazers, references to the game and the entire lyrics of 'never gonna give you up'

since then ive been pondering whether i can actually lose marks for this, or even be failed that exam....discuss...should i repeat on future pointless papers?

If I was marking a paper, and I found the last 3 pages full of an idiots scribbled drawings, I would probably be very harsh with the mark scheme.

This one, and my history teacher went librarian poo at me when I doodled in the mock A levels, kinda scared me off doing it.

theres always a chance your examiner likes pokemanz.

who doesnt like the pokemanz??


but seriously, if the person grading your paper is an old party pooper type person, youre screwed.
If the teacher likes you or isnt that strict, he/she might just laugh

Actually, thinking about it, I doodled in my C4 paper.

I completely messed up a question, and proved that 0 = 0.

Then I attempted it again, and proved that 2 = 0

So I accompanied that discovery with a (¬_¬

if they deem it offensive, then they can refuse to mark it i believe, at least thats what i was told.

i dunno... I mean, my APUSH exam essay section has so many drawings from various movies it would suck if they could just not grade it...

then id better hope the examiner likes pokemanz..
or happens to browse 4chan a lot, that would be a fluke

then again this is for general studies, which our school makes us do on top of our other subjects and doesnt really count for much and isnt accepted by nearly all unis, its not such a big deal

You'd be putting across a terrible first impression with the marker. If they saw a page full of ridiculous scribble I doubt they'd be very lenient with the marks you get.


its not exactly a first impression though, its right at the end, so they read through a few pages of well thought out, eloquent reasoning and then turn over the page and LOL WUT...

The examiner can refuse to mark your paper, thus failing you, but only if the doodles are offensive.
You'd better hope the examiner liekz mudkipz.

I don't think you lose marks for it - What else are you meant to do when given 90 minutes to do an exam that only takes 60 minutes max.

I wrote 'This Page Intentionally Blank' on the 5 pages of the answer booklet I didn't need. I also used the term 'bitch magazines' to describe women's magazines when answering the essay about how the meeja influences people.

I failed one of the AS modules that I doodled all over, although my answer to the essay question on it was 'I couldn't give a toss', so that was more likely to be the reason I failed it.

in my senior biology exam there was a part that required you to explain the result of DNA replication where drawing additional diagrams to help was optional. I drew a blue pair of pants labelled "pair of genes".

now that I think back, it's more likely that I lost marks then gained any.

Someone was doodling in my English Language exam today. An invigilator picked it up and made a dick of the dude in front of the whole year.

Aaah how I love school.

I drew a whole bunch of surrealist crap with subliminal Nazi imagery in mine, and one drawing that is a metaphor for Joseph Stalin getting pouned in the butt by Freddie Mercury. My history teacher straight up fell out of his chair laughing when he saw it.

I did draw on my general studies exam booklets, but in pencil. I rubbed it out afterwards.

They won't take away any marks that you've already got.
Just make sure you have some marks first though; if you just doodle all over the exam paper they might make you pay for it, it's just like not turning up for the test (which they charge you for)
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.

I never draw on my tests, but if I really don't know the answer I'll try to come up with the most ridiculous and non related answer there is. I remember some question about cultures being mixed up, and I said something about several famous musicians (I think Jimi Hendrix, Robert Plant, and I don't remember the rest, I had about 5 or 6) doing a funk version of an old reggae song as a promotion of their cultures.

Oh yeah, and on my finals, there was this question about who was right in the situation, there was a woman and a man with their views (it was on economics). I was about to say that the woman was wrong, because she's a woman, but that wasn't the correct answer (I mean that the woman was right in the situation) and I didn't want to lose any points on my finals, they might necessary for graduating xD.

my friend doodled on his gcse mock and the teacher gave him a U, so if youve got a stingy guy marking the paper he might penalise you. general studies papers have tick boxes so id assume a computer marks that paper, best to not doodle on others though.
