I got a 38/40 on my paper just now, but whoever graded it said my APA format was wrong so I got a 28/40 instead. But it was completely correct  :donthinkso:  I've written enough APA papers to know how to format the damn thing.

 

Also one time in middle school like 8 years ago the teacher marked me off 3 points cause he didn't like the way I wrote my Rs. I still think about that.

lol I had irrelevant calculations on the side of my paper for a question, but the teacher marked them with "give them meaning" and docked off a mark for them, even though I showed basically all of the relevant work in the answer.

Math test. I forgot to write dm (decimeter) not in the final answer but in one step right before the final answer. I wrote it from the first step all the way to the final answer, i just missed 1 step. She gave me 0 for that question

a geography teacher I had in hs was some wack ass queen and if he didn't like the colour scheme of our map he wouldn't even deduct points we just got 0 lmao tell me how that's even allowed

 

and why the fuck are we still colouring maps in high school

 

he was only there for a year because I guess they couldn't take action while it was happening but I've never gotten over him lmao

Algebra. There were 10 items, but I got one wrong. Hence, I get a 0 because that's how life works

There's a teacher who deliberately marks you off one mark no matter how good your paper is because she believes that there's always room for improvement. Bitch, at least tell me where. So I'm constantly getting one mark off full marks in her exams.

Because I put an (X) instead of (in front of the right answers. It doesn't fucking matter cuz I still knew the god damn answers. I wanted to punch my teacher back then.
