The Room Cleaning Project continued today and the highlight of the morning was throwing away all of my various junk from the past semester. I had about five notebooks of stuff to rifle through, and most of it wound up in the recycling bag. However, I found a few somewhat humorous tests and quizzes that I thought I would post here. They’re not as funny as Tortilla’s responses, but I’ll post them anyway.
First, here’s a sample of notes from my history class. This was United States history, which I should point out has been drilled into my head every year since first grade. I had a 100 average in this class in high school, so you would think that I might get exempt from it in college. But no, I had to sit through a semester of US history. Which I might point out focused mainly on slavery. Seriously, that was all we learned about the whole semester. Anyway, back to the notes. I only had about four or five pages of notes for the whole semester, since I stopped taking them a week into the class. We didn’t have tests so I didn’t see the point. Notice the large amounts of drawings on the page. Most of my notes look like this. I might point out that I wound up with an A in the class.
Next, here is a quiz from my English class. I hardly ever did the readings (see what a dedicated student I am?) because I noticed that my grades did not increase if I did the readings. This was one of the last quizzes we had. Question three is the one I am posting this picture for.
And this is another English quiz. It had been a group quiz and somebody else came up with the ‘ratifying inventor’ part, but I thought it was funny so I put it on my quiz too.
Now onto Calculus. I have a feeling that my professor used up a couple red pens on my papers throughout the semester. This first one is my worst grade in the class. It’s blurry, but it says 7/20 at the top. You can clearly see all the effort I put into writing down a bunch of bullshit in the hopes of scraping a few points.
Here’s an example of how my BS didn’t even get me one measly point. I think I should have gotten at least one point just for effort. On the first question, my professor wrote ‘does not follow’.
This comment was written quite often on my tests and quizzes. Whenever I didn’t know how to do the problem I’d just put it in my calculator and write down that answer. My prof didn’t like that.
When in doubt, just write down the formula. It’s bound to get you a point. It worked here. Gotta love the question mark. It’s amazing that she knew exactly what I was thinking when I tried to do the problem.
Last but not least, one of the bonus questions on a test. She wrote ‘how did you get this?’ I have no idea how I got that. I’m pretty sure I just guessed. Must have worked because I got 2 points.
That’s all for this past semester. Most of my classes either didn’t have tests or had multiple choice tests, which make it hard to give witty responses. Sometime I’ll have to type up the story of the practice English Regents I took in 11th grade. That was funny.
