The Best Exam Ever!!

... is when you flip the question paper and find the answers printed on the back! A student's dream come true!

Students taking a GCSE in music were given more than a little help in their exam – the answers were written on the back of the question paper. A printing error meant that all the answers were given for the first part of the examination in schools in Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

While a number of students flagged up the mistake, others are thought to have carried on and completed the test either without noticing or without letting on.

Teachers told the Times Education Supplement that the copyright information on the back of the exam paper also contained some answers. For example, one question asked pupils to name the composer of a piece of music that was played and, on the back of the paper, was the answer, Handel, beside the question number. (Telegraph)
