Art class. I was supposed to get a 10(highest grade) but the teacher gave me a 9 and her excuse was that she didn't want the other students to be jealous cos I would be the only with a 10. 


If she had said cos of my lateness at least that would be understandable, my biology teacher used that to give me a 9.

I wrote my in-class essay with pencil instead of pen. 


To be fair, the teacher told us since the beginning of the year to use pen and not pencil for in-class essays and exams. So it's really my fault for being careless. 


He took off 10 points. 

I never wrote in pencil again...

In a science literacy task, one of the questions was to draw a diagram of an octopus. I got docked off a mark because mine didn't have a nose.


But the thing is, what sort of octopus has a visible nose?!

English: I lost marks on an essay because I need to "organise my thoughts"

basically I kept mispelling a word so I kept stricking it out and stuff


I lost marks for writing "below the last line" even though we'd never been told to not write there and I had no choice anyway I was writing a letter and had realised that when I had written my address on the previous page I accidentally forgot to write something since I turned the page and forgot


She's especially strict with me and always gives me as few marks as she can


Biology: I had submitted my practicals record early, and the teacher accepted it but then gave it back later saying she wants to collect all the kids' books at once and then later she told me she won't accept it unless it was covered with the school cover which you can only get from the school book store which is only open on Wednesdays and she told me this on a Thursday so I kept losing marks for "late submission" for a week until the book store opened

When the professor only wants the shit that he considers the "Truest Achievable Truth" answer. Like there ain't no one path bitch.

In junior school, I was supposed to get 100% for my paper because I got all the answers correct. But, I got 40-50% because I did not follow the teacher's way of writing the calculations. 

For example:
12 x 5 + 1
= 60 +1
= 61

But I wrote, 
12 x 5 + 1
= 61

The teacher yelled at me in front of the whole class and accused me of cheating and disobeying orders. =.=

I need to take remedy bcause my score for bio is high. Like 92/100. And the teacher aint believe it. So she said she will give two essays for us. But it ended just w/ one essay, heredity, and i didnt study the genotipe... So i ended up get 80, and still i need to take re-remedy (?) bcause i aint get full mark.. The teacher is confusing, she'll be mad if we get low mark but she'll be mad too if we get high mark.

And there is teacher that will give me low mark in accountant bcause my handwriting isnt good. And he didnt care about the numbers but handwriting

My teacher said that my lower cased a's look like 9. She took it as misspelling so I was deducted 5 marks for my 6 pages essay. 45/50.

And my mom still blames me for not getting English as my best subject in high school.
