20 Of The Best Times Students Were Smarter Than Their Tests



Everybody has had those moments in school when you can do nothing but stare at test questions as though it has been written in another language. For foreign language classes, that usually is the case, but the point is that we have all been left with nothing but emptiness in our heads over a subject we are supposed to understand by the time the test rolls around. These are some hilarious examples of students who actually took these moments to outsmart their teachers. Were the attempts appreciated and rewarded? Probably not. But the witty humor remains for all of us to look at and wish that we had been clever enough to use the ideas.

The Math Wizard

What better answer is there? When it comes to math, all that really matters is that you get a number at the end, right?

The Musician Hater

Obviously, this kid doesn’t think much of the whole “practice makes perfect” thing.

Dear Mr. J…

Perhaps the most complex answer possible to a question that the kid obviously had no idea about. The teacher almost bought it, too.

You’re A Wizard, Harry!

Obviously this individual should drop math and pick up a literature class.

The Existentialist

Science? Maybe not this kid’s best subject. Perhaps they should go for degree in Psych and help real people with real loneliness problems.

Friendless Hope

Maybe the person from the last picture can help Hope out. Obvious she needs some better company if all she has to turn to are shapes in a workbook.

Historical Accuracy

We find this to be a perfectly acceptable interpretation of the question.

Young And Angry

This one is very deep. Obviously the student is trying to broaden our understanding of racism and convict us of how we treat others. Or something like that, at least.

Hide And Seek

Why use the Pythagorean theorem when you have logic?

The Great Historian

What a broad question, right? This is obviously the most appropriate answer.

The Animal’s Rights Activist

Look at the two taller one take all of the food. They do not even drop a leaf down for their shorter friend. These giraffes are nothing but heartless.

The Feminist

Obviously this young woman has some built up angst about all of the misogyny in the world. You tell ’em, girl.

The Hopeless Romantic

It saved Harry Potter, right? Maybe it can save this person’s science grade.

Too Literal?

Maybe. But hey, the crossings swords look pretty cool.

The Chemist

What else could “hard water” be? The doodled stars make it even more convincing.

The Mathematician

Decimals are hard, okay?

Just Plain Rude

We’re not sure what Judy’s problem is, but she obviously has something against dark-haired males

The Little Mermaid Part 2

If a mermaid is just a human with fins, of course their internal organs would be the same. We’re not sure what the teacher took an issue with.

Always Bacon

We think this picture speaks for itself.

Real Life Math

Maybe this person isn’t meant for a career in mathematics, but perhaps would make a great doctor.
