to get the words "James Delve is awesome" and a picture of Elmer the Patchwork Elephant into my essay.
and I still got a 2:1 for it
for using the phrase
"a metaphorical smorgasbord of techniques" in three successive essays...
i used to, in the first paragraph, make certain letters a point bigger font, so it read "give me a first in this essay" or the like.
Ha, i'll have to try that.
and instead of wrting "the nazis" I wrote "those fucking nazis". He called called into see his tutor and everything. Ha!
My brother's mate once had to do an essay on the film Taxi Driver. Throughout the essay he unwittingly called the main character 'Travis Pickle'.

My course was ace, some of my essays were on: Buffy, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Lost in Translation, David Bowie's 'Nazi' salute and Misty's Big Adventure. I kind of miss university...
Fairly easy to get them into the essay, but thats not the point...
This number malarky is pissing me off.

I managed to use a Pixes reference in a Geography essay once, I was pleased with that.
it got 65. This is what the guy actually said: Excellent. You have a clear grasp of the subject. However you haven't put in any footnotes or a bibliography, so I can't be sure if you haven't just copied it ad verbatim from a textbook. However, since it's 2'o clock in the morning I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt.
I love history
