Ah, AP exams. I woke in the middle of the night, remembering one of my favorite of the amusing things students wrote.

[We're speaking here of things they wrote on purpose. That is, they took the wonderful adolescent sense of humor and inserted it into the exam, for example by writing that America won the Revolution because we're "Sweet!" Say it in a surfer voice for full effect. We loved these exams, because they lightened our mood and made the day bearable. Thank you, funny students.]

On one of my exams, and apparently many, many others, the student stopped halfway through and wrote, "Imma let you finish, but this is the best test of all time...of all time!" then resumed writing.

If you don't get the reference, see here. The Urban Dictionary also explains.

We laughed *hard* at this. I love it. I was never that much fun as a teenager.

A lot of them were really charming and funny. Smart students can produce good writing and when stressed they sometimes respond with humor. Love that.
