Here’s a compilation of funny student exam answers that have floated around the web. One question that remains is how they got onto the web. Did the students scan and post them? Perhaps a friend was amused at their classmate’s stupidity and scanned it? Then again, maybe the teacher or professor decided to post it for the world to see (although most of them didn’t find the answers very amusing).
However they got onto the web, I think they’re great. I have two favorites. First, the question asking to find x where the student circles the letter x and writes, “Here it is”. Second, the request to expand (a+b)n. The student writes the same equation three times, each with more and more space between the letters. The teacher’s response: “Very funny Peter”.
