This section contains some actual statements from my students, mostly in response to exam questions, tests and homework.
Whilst marking their
work in the usual way, it has been my habit to jot down these digressions verbatim and retain this for further consideration.
I recommend this to anyone in my situation. Conceivably it may help one to keep one's attention focussed, or to hone one's critical faculties, and perhaps to retain one's sanity. I do concede, however, that it may also have the opposite effects.
I present them here as they accumulated from year to year, in an apparently themeless way.
In order to reduce download time, I have chained them together so you can move from one compilation to the next. The howling wolf icons at the end of each list take you onwards or back. Perhaps you will agree with me that the earlier ones are funnier than the more recent ones, although some or most of these come from A level papers which I have marked.
