Ok, i was in this little storage room where we keep blazers and lost property and stuff at school on friday, counting the money we had raised for amnesty candle day and i noticed there were a lot more boxes in there then usual. I then noticed that there was a BoS logo on them. I then noticed a sticker on them. I then noticed that the sticker said 'english' and then some numbers after that. I then noticed I WAS STANDING NEXT TO THE FUCKING ENGLISH PAPERS!!!
I didnt take one and sell it on the black market, but i was just curious, how many people would take it if they had the opertunity and a gaurentee of not getting caught?

Personally, I wouldn't have taken it, for the simple fact that it wouldn't have really done much for me.. (except earned me some money coz I'd sell copies of it)
I think I've studied sufficiently for english and I can say I'm fairly confident, knowing what the questions are wouldn't change that really

Our english teacher was telling us at the end of last term that in the weeks leading up to the exam they keep the papers at police stations...I guess your experience proves that no matter where they keep them, even if they were in like a vault within a vault within a vault or whatever, they've still gotta transport them to the school at some point!

I would have taken it for sure, as long as I wouldn't get caught.

OMG - can you imagine.

Knowing the questions would make a huge difference for exams like Ancient History and English
:rolleyes:

I don't know about them being the real exams....cause if they just put the papers at school where the teachers can look at them, it defeats the purpose of the BOS getting independent supervisors for the exams...

I heard they only have one or 2 copies of the actually exam until the morning of the exam when the skool prints copies

But they can't really expect every school to have the resources and time to print out copies of the exam paper then fold each page nicely in half and staple it so it looks like a nice book...

Especially ours. :D
If we want a bunch of landscape papers stapled, the teachers can only figure out how to staple it in the bottom-right corner.

A flash of inspiration... Turn the paper over. Ah. :D

the school staff dont actually touch the papers

the BOS staff at your school handle the papers etc so its all secure

I wouldn't have taken it.

but I really wish I had the IPT paper, Im screwed for that subject, like if you get above 65% at my school, your like FIRST.
And I need good marks in ipt, so yeah, if anyone happens to get hold of the IPT before thursday could you give me some 'practice questions' to go over.

prepared for IPT, are you joking?
I take comfort in knowing at my school, theres people who will only attempt the multiple choice and thats it, so if I put something down for the short answers Im bound to beat some people.
