Exams: bleargh

Desk is actually a toilet When you first saw that image in your peripheral vision, what did you think that was? I bet you thought it was a toilet.

This is the image they’re using for the new ‘exam revision’ section on our university course’s website. What’s more, it’s about twice the size of all the other icons. Every time I log on to check how much reading I’ve not done, all I see is a massive toilet.

I mean, come on, it’s got a lid and everything. Okay, so there is a little chair there, but I’ve never sat an exam at a desk that looks like a toilet. I reckon it must be one of those fancy Japanese toilets. Maybe we’re sitting the exam at a toilet just in case those exam-time nerves go a bit, er, overboard.
