    Lol. Sorry though some of these have obviously been 'recycled' as I've come across them before.

    As it's exam season again, I think it would be appropriate to link to an exam paper I created just after I finished my GCSEs: http://stuff.m0php.net/misc/Q-GCSE.pdf

    Ideal for printing out and leaving in the staffroom

    i think they're not just recycled - I think the whole thing is put together as a spoof. Since when did "Swindon, England" have its own GCSEs?

    Having said that, they do make me smile and you just know that some of them will really have been written by pupils either completely lost or deliberately trying to make a joke :-)
