Some of the not-so-pleasant memories of any child’s past are of the cold and dingy environment of an exam room. No matter how well prepared you are for your test, you still find yourself in situations where you are utterly dumbfounded by the questions. This is the situation where you need to get creative with your answers.
Some of the responses these students come up with are fine, but some create answers so hilarious and outside the box, that they become newsworthy and go viral. So without further ado, here are responses of some creative geniuses to a few exam questions that will make you laugh so hard that you might fall out of your chair.
The Chosen One
This student may be touched by a higher force or might be someone who is up all night, partying. But either way, he believes Jesus is, without a doubt, always the answer.
Another explanation could be that he is taking a math test for a preacher, and in that case, writing Jesus as every answer might not be such a bad idea. The result of this test can only be explained by the score the kid got. But either way, he looks like a true believer.
Extra Effort Always Pays Off
Now, this kid was taking a matrix-based math test. Although, quite simple and he may have even solved the problem, but there was confusion at the back of his mind that something is not right.
So he used bribery as the age-old method of sealing the deal. He may have found out somehow that the teacher may be into cute giraffes. Guess what his bribe worked, as the teacher duly rewarded for the kid’s creative skills and gave them one mark.
The Literal Cell
This young fellow took the meaning of “literally” to a whole new level. The question on the test was to draw the structure of a “plant cell”. Well, the kid really did draw a literal plant cell.
The plant that can be seen is in a jail cell is all worried. He doesn’t know as to what is the reason he is in a jail cell. But credit should be given, as the bright student mentioned all the important aspects of a jail cell that the poor plant is imprisoned in.
Here is another student that took the test with a very literal mindset. The test was about naming some quadrilateral shapes. Upon reading the test, our brilliant student came up with the solution that the best way to name shapes is to associate each quadrilateral to a person that shapes closely resembles.
So, unlucky Tedison might be a person who looks like a rectangle whereas a Bob might be someone who resembles a square. This surely gives an idea about how each person in a class looks like.
A Future Endocrinologist
Sometimes math questions seem very unrealistic and impractical. Like the question below inquires as to what will “Bob Have”, if he consumed 29 candy bars out of 36. Although the logical answer would be 7, a kid’s perspective is a bit different.
He genuinely feels worried about poor Bob’s health, as eating 29 candy bars will surely give him diabetes. But to look on the bright side, this kid knows that too much sugar is bad and also he might be a future endocrinologist (a diabetes doctor).
The Ghost Sceptic
They say that skeptics or people who question everything are present in all parts of life. Here is an example of one such student. This poor teacher tried to make math fun for their students.
They incorporated “Casper the friendly ghost” type images into the math problems. But one true skeptic stood by his beliefs. He mentioned that ghosts are not real and as a result may have gotten no marks. But that is the price you pay, for being a true believer.
Power of a Good Book
They say that power of a good book is unparalleled. Meaning once you are wrapped in it, you even forget about your existence or that you are sitting in an exam room. This particular student was clearly under the spell of an indulging novel.
Although the answer he gave isn’t incorrect this wasn’t what the teacher was asking. But to play along with the kid’s fantasy, he should have read the 2nd part of the question and given proper arguments supporting his answer. Who knows the teacher might have been a fan as well. Stranger things have happened in life.
A True Fact
This student stated the obvious fact that most people seem to overlook. Upon being asked that what was Queen Elizabeth’s second 1st or immediate action when she ascended to the throne.
The genius student upon careful deliberation stated that as she was very tired, after years and years of fighting for the throne, that wait for it “She quickly sat down”. The teacher was looking for a different answer here, but due credit should be given for well something.
The Literal King
Most of us think of newspapers or media-related stuff when we hear the term “free press”. However, when asked in an exam to explain the term free press. This literal genius stated something that is not even remotely related to newspapers.
But the sweet and innocent student should get credit for the fact that what they think “free press” means is getting a top-notch ironing job done by their mother. On this day respecting what parents do for their children should count for something.
The Trend Setter
The following student decided to take a very bold and risky route in answering questions. During the duration of an academic career, teachers come across students of all sorts of students; some are confident, some are timid but most students are an amalgamation of both.
This particular student was one of those overconfident chaps, who took a huge risk and the teacher rewarded their risk with an acknowledged red check. This situation could have gone either way, but the student can also count himself lucky.
All the Single Ladies
Youth nowadays are extremely influenced by famous pop culture. From Beyoncé to Rihanna, there is an endless list of hip-hop artists that young people quote. This particular student looked like a big fan of Beyoncé’s hit song “Single Ladies”. Here she hints to whoever is interested in her, should put a ring around her finger.
So the question on why there are rings on Saturn, the student replied that due to Gods liking for Saturn, he put a ring on or around it. In this case, the teacher was equally witty and pop-savvy, as they replied that Saturn is no single lady.
Survival of the Fittest
By looking at the picture below, one would agree, that yes giraffes are heartless creatures. As clearly they could have shared a bit of food with the one laying on the ground. That poor thing died in the end. That is the way of the world, where it is survival of the fittest.
This sympathetic student had to answer from 4 choices, but after observing the dead giraffe, he created a 5th option stating that giraffes are heartless and cruel. It looks that way, but maybe next time stick to the choices given.
A Born Leader
By looking at the answer this student wrote, one can assume that someday he may turn out to be a civil rights activist. The correct answer the teacher was looking for was ‘taxonomy’, but the teacher should nonetheless be proud upon seeing this crafty answer.
Who knows that the hilarious answer we are all looking at and laughing at may be the answer of a future president? Again in these strange and uncertain times, even stranger things have happened.
Say No to Drugs
This particular question is based on a math problem. Here the teacher might have asked for the height or dimensions of the ground from the cliff where Jason jumped from. But the answer our dear student gave was nowhere near related to math.
He tackled an even bigger issue that is drugs. And rightfully Jason must have been pretty high on something, to be stupid enough to jump off a cliff. Full points to our students for thinking outside the box.
Not My Problem
This particular student believes that one should mind his own business. Let people solve their problems and issues. A very practical approach.
If the entire country can’t figure out this guerrilla warfare dilemma; then how can one measly little scholar find a solution to eradicate this war. But this student shouldn’t give up just yet, who knows if all the students put on their thinking caps, they might be able to do what the entire Colombian government couldn’t.
To Infinity and Beyond
This particular student went to infinity with his outside-the-box thinking. But we have to appreciate his creative genius. He thought that the infinity sign was an eight in the 1st part and applying this principle on the 2nd part came up with a 5.
The teacher however didn’t think much of it, if it was up to me; he should have at least gotten half a point. Because the student went to infinity to get the answer 5.
A True Genius
In my books, this student is a true genius. This test looks like something a teacher would give to a 2nd or a 3rd grader. But believe me, this kid nailed each word.
This wasn’t the answer the teachers were asking for, but check out the creativity and resourcefulness of this kid. He not only gave a list of ten words he knew but answered each word correctly. To me, this genius deserves some extra credit.
The Abstract Thinker
Now here is an example of a student, about whom you can say is a true outside-the-box thinker. Upon answering a question that looks pretty straightforward, this kid answers in a very abstract way.
One can say that this person has a taste for the dramatic and can become a good writer someday. Technically the answer he gave might be correct, but as to why he chose that answer, leaves one wanting to know more. A true gift a writer possesses and deserves some extra credit too.
Show Me What You Got
This test consisted of two parts. The 1st part is pretty simple and our student gave his answer as any normal person would give. But the 2nd part is where things get a bit interesting.
The teacher inquired about the thought process that resulted in the answer the student came up with. To this, our genius student literally drew his entire thought process. I frankly blame the teacher in this case, as the student did what he was asked for.
The Expansion Theory
When asked to expand an arithmetic equation, this particular student really took its meaning literally. He started expanding the equation, and I think the only thing holding him back was the size of what looks like A4 paper.
Otherwise, he would have expanded this equation to infinity. But I guess the teacher didn’t like where this problem was heading and gave him no marks. Got to feel for the kid, he was really going for something here.
Searching for That ‘X’
This student is searching for that elusive ‘x’. A search all of us have been involved in at some point in our lives. On a funnier note, the teacher asked the student to find ‘x’ in a right-angled triangle problem.
And the student technically found the ‘x’, sitting there on the slope. This is a good lesson for the teacher, to be more specific next time. To me, points go to the student for stating the obvious.
A Good Lesson in Life
This kid from elementary school has things figured out. Judging by the answers he gave, one can see that he will go places in life. The question teacher asked was a simple problem and the students had to find the solution.
So upon the question of what to do when you fall and scratch your knee, the kid answered that you get up and deal with it. The kid deserves extra credit for having such a positive take on life.
Rules of “Fight Club”
This student is clearly a big fan of Brad Pitt and his movie “Fight Club”. There is another possibility that he doesn’t know anything about thermodynamics. The possibility that the latter is true has far more chances.
So instead of mentioning the rules of thermodynamics, the student starts to quote the rules of “Fight Club”. This route might have worked, if the teacher was also a big Brad Pitt fan, but either way extra credit for the kid for creativity.
Very seldom do we see that a teacher admires the creative genius of one of their students. But in this particular case, this was clearly shown. This particular student answered each and every question literally.
He stated the facts in a very clear and obvious fashion. Some of us can learn a lot from these answers. I know that I did. I think the teacher also learned something here, as they gave A+ for creativity and good intuitive skills.
Connecting the Dots
We live in a world where each and every person exploits the system for their own benefit. This student found a chink in the exam tests armor, and believe me he exploited it greatly.
Although I don’t think the teacher fell for it as our clever student weaved a tangled web. But credit should be given where it is due, as clearly the kid thought he could manipulate the system and get away with it. The teacher however didn’t fall for it.
It’s All About the Numbers
This student is technically correct in describing the shapes of respective 8 & 6. The question clearly states to find the difference between 8 and 6, which is a simple subtraction problem.
However, this student went for the literal meaning and started to find the physical differences between 8 & 6. What would have been interesting to see is the teacher’s response to this creative solution, as they did not state clearly to subtract the two numbers.
Not an Idiot
By the looks of it, this test has insulted our intelligent student. Upon inquiring as to which of the organisms is a plant, the student’s reply was rather bold. He was offended a bit by the audacity of the teacher, who questioned the intellect of the student.
I don’t know what the teacher’s response was, but guessing it must not have been in favor of the student. But for me, the student stood up for what he believed in and replied accordingly.
The Not So Simple Math
This particular math problem required the student to practice his greater than or less than signs. But instead of doing this, this genius created a 3rd option. An option that was supposed to create confusion in the minds of the teacher.
The poor child might not have understood the problem, and as a result, the teacher would have given him some grace marks. But I guess the teacher knew that no one is that naive, and might have penalized the student to the max.
Heart to Heart Essay
Wow, if this essay didn’t impress the teacher, I don’t really know what else will. What started as a science test asking about the usefulness of nitrogen gas for archaeologists, turned out to be a heart-to-heart essay between a student and their teacher.
The teacher Mr.J and the student seem pretty close, as the student shared his love life with him and how he is worried as he doesn’t know how to pursue the girl he likes. To this Mr.J gives him solid advice regarding his love life, but I bet the student didn’t get a good grade.
Not Einstein But Maybe Shakespeare
This student has the potential to become the next Shakespeare. This math problem was a bit too much for our student but somehow using his creative genius he created something unique.
He used some clever analogies to convert math problems into a wordplay masterpiece. Hopefully, the teacher might have taken notice of this kid’s talent, and nudged him in the right direction. A few points might not hurt his confidence as well.
Good Marital Advice
This hilariously smart kid may have broken the secret code of a successful marriage. Let’s be real for a second, this genius student has given a solution, that most married adults spend thousands of dollars on marriage councilors. And still, most of these marriages end up in divorce.
If only we are smart enough to listen to this kid and tell our wives they look beautiful even when they look, well how the kid puts it ’like a dump truck’. This kid deserves extra credit for this ingenious solution.
Dark But True
Let’s be realistic for a second, although Warren has displayed a very dark and terrifying picture on the question asked, it is not far from reality. Most of us dream to live to be 100, but it is a pipe dream at the moment.
This picture displays the innocence and truthfulness of a youthful mind who knows that it is highly unlikely that he will live for more than 100 years. Even if he does draw a picture of himself being over 100, no one would want to see that. The reason was he would be in a casket, in a cemetery somewhere. Dark but very true.
Power of a Good Poop
This hilarious picture entails how a kid’s mind works. It is pure and innocent. Here this kid gives an excellent piece of advice or a simple life hack if you are feeling down and out. That solution is to go and poop and feel free and light.
Upon hearing that his favorite teacher is unwell, the adorable child wrote a get well soon type of letter where he explains the power of taking a good long poop. Can’t deny the kid has got a point there.
Stating the Obvious
This kid certainly did not pay any attention to the history class. Maybe he was daydreaming about candies or having the next play station. That is something only the student knows.
However, the student did point out a very obvious and literal fact, which is true. And that is the American declaration of independence was signed at the bottom. If this doesn’t crack a teacher, then I don’t know what else does.
Frankie the Freeloader
Young Frankie has no shame in admitting that he is a freeloader, who leeches his parents. Maybe Frankie’s parents don’t give him any chores to do because they want him to study hard and get good grades or maybe they just want him to relax.
Either way, Frankie is fine with it, as he openly admits about his freeloader status. This Frankie fellow is a very truthful kid. The teacher should give credit for this truthfulness, a quality that is very rare nowadays.
The One Vivid Word
Some students feel the school to be simply the worst place. We can guess what ordeals this student has to go through to host such hostility. Maybe this is because of the education system, the teachers he didn't like, boring subjects, or bullies.
We don't exactly know what grade the kid was in, but two things are for sure. First, he just hates going to school, and secondly, he is not afraid to tell his teacher how he feels.
This smart-ass student is not wrong about what ended in 1896. This is some sort of history-related question, where the teacher might have been looking for some significant event that might have ended in 1896. It might be something political or something related to sports, who knows?
But apparently, this kid didn't know the answer either, so instead, he decided to get cheeky with it. As the answer is technically correct, so I suppose the student deserves some sort of credit.
Talk About Over Confidence
In this particular case, Mr.Thomas the teacher is trying to teach his students some discipline. He asks what would happen if a student would arrive late for one of his classes.
Our overconfident and full of swag student has some other ideas about his particular late arrival. His answer is nothing short of a guy oozing with self-belief. As he answers in a cool manner that upon his late arrival Mr, Thomas would blush and say thank you for coming late to my class. Talk about riding the high horse.
The Logical One
In a world where logic is missing in almost non-existent. this particular student is standing tall. but before we get into that, the question the teacher has asked seems a bit odd as well. They most probably were inquiring about the side or circumference of a football.
In my humble opinion, the logical student gave the best explanation possible, regarding the length of a football. It is equal to one football. Surely he deserves some extra credit as the teacher wasn't clear enough.
The Cocky One
Like the logical student before this slide, this particular student seems a bit cocky. He starts the test great, by answering each and every question correctly. But something went wrong in the end. It went so wrong that the teacher might have penalized him greatly for it. Well not really!
That something is called cockiness, as there is a fine line between confidence and overconfidence. This kid clearly crossed that line. The teacher obviously penalized the poor fellow. However, in my opinion, confidence should be celebrated.
The Animal Lover
This particular student looks like a genuine animal or dog lover. Either way, he might have sacrificed his entire test on the basis of what he believes in. That is one should never hit dogs or hurt animals. A belief that everyone should live by.
Obviously, the teacher was asking between two choices of hit or fit, the choice was hit. So this kid came up with his own explanation. And trust me it is better than the original choices.
Old Is Gold
The saying that old is gold, holds true here. From what it looks like is that this kid is a huge Hardaway fan. I mean he is quoting the lyrics to one of his very famous songs released in 1992. Obviously, this kid is way too young to be quoting something that old.
But all in all, he explained the question perfectly, as in love we don't want to get hurt. Extra credit for this kid, please.
Earth Day Trivia
Now, this kid clearly doesn't have a clue, as to what day it is. He may have been partying the night before with his friends or maybe playing video games. The teacher asked a simple question regarding earth day, to which this student's reply was that of shock and awe.
But once the student's nerves calmed down. He comes up with a genius suggestion that his knowledge regarding the existence of earth day could have been an important trivia, to be used in-game shows and whatnot.
This student has a bright future in becoming either a magician or a secret agent. Just look at the sneaky answers he came up with. Talk about creativity. What looks like some type of a math-based test, turned out top-secret, with coffee stains all over it. The teacher has no chance of grading this part with all that is going on.
Obviously, the teacher might not have fallen for the spilled coffee or the letter marked top secret. But still, he can guide this kid on the right path regarding his future employment.
The Best Shortcut
All kids love games, especially puzzles. But this particular kid didn't have the time or the patience to go through all that maze. Maybe he was late for some prior engagement, who knows what kids these days are up to, but still what he did was hilarious.
One can say that the kid is extra smart and found the best shortcut. If you were a dog, you would have gone straight for the bones as well. So this might be the best shortcut.
