The school holidays are almost upon us here in the UK and have started elsewhere in the world. Let’s celebrate with some of the silliest exam answers I could find.

I am no stranger to ridiculous and funny answers because I used to be a teacher. I have also been the writer of stupid answers. At the tender age of six I took an exam. One question asked:

“Can you name five fruits and five vegetables?”

I thought long and hard, wrote out all ten, rubbed them all out with my eraser and wrote, “Yes, I can!”

Here are few that tickled me:
