How do you guys typically behave while writing an exam?

A photo of Anonymous Anonymous
Like, do you cuss under your breath, flip your paper off, cough, throw things when questions don't go your way, sleep, etc.?

Profuse use of expletives, followed by the flipping of tables.
How about you?

If time permits, I'll usually take an hour nap around the halfway point, then wake up and finish the exam with half an hour left to go.

I answer the ones I can, then go back to the ones I need to answer. If that doesn't happen, then I try to bs my way through?

Hehe. If you were assigned a seat in my exam rooms, particularly one seat in front of me, prepate to have pencils flicked at your head and whiteout spilled in your hair.

Have you ever had people hum while writing exams/tests but they don't realize that they are indeed humming? That's the worst.

Well let's just say that I pity the people who sit around me. I talk to myself, occasionally have been known to sing, and as the time runs out I kick the chair in front of me. Although if it wasn't for the people who sit around me I would have no idea that I do this.

I occasionally laugh aloud to myself, delighting over something I find amusing or interesting that the teacher would include.

I do the same things mentioned above, do the questions I can and skip the ones I can't. I then go back to them and wonder why I didn't get them the first time. I sometimes swear under my breath and once during my advanced functions exam, I said f*ck in an exaggerated "stage whisper" because I realized my calculator had been in gradians the whole time. There are 400 gradians in a circle as opposed to roughly 6.28 (2π) radians and all my answers were huge. I rectified the problem, but it was an awful inconvenience!

Your teacher confiscated your paper and sent you to the office I bet.

1. Glance through whole exam
2. Go through each question I know, skip I don't
3. When I reach the end, I go through those I don't know
4. If there is a written question or fill in the blank I 100% don't know,
I then proceed to draw a Giraffe (all my teachers know this and think it's hilarious)
One time I recall being prompted to explain why Newton's Method failed to determine the x-intercept, and I drew a Giraffe saying to ask the teacher
5. Once I am satisfied with my exam, I then proceed to daydream about crazy scenarios happening (Military breaks through ceiling and requires my help to save the woooooorld)

No, she just gave me a look and went "shhhh." I'm not sure if she had actually realized what I'd said.

I always pull my hair up right before a test (like the girl in a Series of Unfortunate Events, one of my friends said).

I do jiggle my legs, and I take my watch and glasses off and set them very neatly on the desk.

If I'm really nervous, I'll cross myself. :P

1. Get there early.
2. Don't go over notes right before - I psych myself out.
3. Sit at the side or back of the room (I get a little nervous when I'm in the middle).
4. Make sure pencils are sharpened and I have a black, red, and blue pen (although only one colour is ever really necessary).
5. Write.
6. Check the time and hand in.
7. Buy food.
8. Go home.
