Exam howlers

June 15, 2007

One question in particular, in the hundreds of scripts I’ve been marking, seems to have provoked some strange responses.

Basically, it was asking what, apart from car wax, might help prevent car doors from rusting?

The expected answer was ‘paint’ or ‘polish’.

I have seen:

the rims


steering wheel

front and back ends




wing mirror

the bonnets, boot and door


the bonnet

the back of the car.

It does make you wonder what’s going on in their heads, doesn’t it.
