    Link: Playing The Odds On A Multiple Choice Test? - Research has proven over that `C` is the most common answer in all multiple-choice tests--unless it`s a true/false test.

    @turbotong, Sorry to Burst your bubble but most schools use that identical form, Unless you can see the name of the school somewhere that I`m blind to see (which is a HUGE possibility lol) then anyone could say OMG THIS WAS AT MY SCHOOL!

    the score is hand written, and was probably not actually graded on the grounds that all the answers were the same.

    About the note from the teacher - it just seems odd to me that a teacher would email their student saying "may god have mercy on your soul". I have no problem with the test itself, but it might be one of those snopes cases where the picture and description aren`t exactly the same.

    Elsewhere I saw the accompanying note the professor gave the guy. He said the lowest score ever on that test (which was true/false) had been about sixty-five percent, so that student took "fail" to a whole new level by not reading a single question and thereby failing to realize the test was t/f.

    "The commentary the professor says after grading this test is hilarious XD"

    And here it be:

    Dear Michael,

    Every year I attempt to boost my students` final grades by giving them this relatively simple exam consisting of 100 True/False questions from only 3chapters of material. For the past 20 years that I have taught Intro Communications101 at this institution I have never once seen someone score below a 65 on this exam. Consequently, your score of a zero is the first in history and ultimately brought the entire class average down a whole 8 points.

    There were two possible answer choices: A (True)and B (False). You chose C for all 100 questions in an obvious attempt to get lucky with a least a quarter of the answers. It`s as if you didn`t look at a single question. Unfortunately, this brings your final grade in this class to failing. See you next year!

    May God have mercy on your soul.

    Sincerely,
    Professor William Turner

    Apparently, this was, in fact a true/false test where the only possible correct answers were A or B. Considering the subject and level, this guy had to be a slobbering tard.

    On a side note, many tests will subtract 1/4 or 1/5 of a point for wrong answers so they will average to zero if you guess. However, if you can eliminate even one wrong answer, and you guess from among the remaining choices, you can, on average, improve your score.
