Do you take them? Write them? Do them? Sit for them?
I confused the heck out of someone last week when I told him I was writing an exam. He thought I was actually making up questions for the exam, while I just meant that I’d be sitting at a desk answering the questions.
I’ve always spoken of “writing” exams. Sometimes I’ll say “take”, but not nearly as often.
What do you say?
I’m wondering if it’s a regional thing, so please mention your general location!
