Two students at Oxford University were so confident of passing their end-of-year exams that instead of revising over the weekend they decided to go to a party.
On Monday morning they had terrible hangovers and were in no state to sit their exam. One of them phoned their professor and told him that they had gone away for the weekend and the car had broken down on the way back to Oxford, so they could not get there in time for the exam. The professor was very understanding. “No problem”, he said. “These things happen. You can take the exam on Wednesday”.
The students could not believe their luck. So on Wednesday the two students went in to the university to sit their exam, feeling very pleased with themselves. The professor put them into different rooms so they could not talk to each other and gave each of them the exam paper in a brown envelope. When they opened the envelopes, they found only one question to answer: “Where exactly did the car break down?”
Do you think the students passed their exam?
