It never fails. Something always goes wrong that sends you into a panic and you can’t do anything about it. Here are 10 things you never want to hear during state testing, and always do.

1. “I just answered all my reading questions on the math answer sheet. Is that OK?

2. (10 minutes into the test) "I have to pee."

3. “My pencil broke.

4. Crying. Not just from the students, but the teachers and proctors too.

5. Test booklets closing 12 minutes into an hour-long test.

6. Snoring — because you know they didn’t check their answers!

7. Fire Alarms. Nothing says test security like everyone running down the halls.

8. The not so silent kid fart. There’s no coming back from that.

9. The loud gum chewer. Everybody is silent and all you hear is that lip smacking.

via GIPHY

10. “Uh oh!” This can never be good with your job on the line.
