With midterm season comes very desperate students, but one student from the University of Manitoba definitely takes the cake for the most insane attempt to get out of an exam. The average student might try to fake the flu or if you are really desperate, try to cheat, but this student clearly was having none of those subpar options (especially not just studying beforehand like most people). Go big or go home... right?
Not too long after the same student and her fellow classmates got another email from the actual professor claiming somebody was trying to pose as him- but yes, the midterm definitely was still scheduled for tomorrow. It turns out the student (who acted and still remains anonymous) used a proxy to send the email as the professor.
While we don't know if the student was dumb enough to send the email to the entire class list including the professor himself or if students contacted the professor about the cancellation, this definitely is one of the more extreme ways we've heard of a student trying to get out of an exam! By the sounds of the professor it looks like if he ever finds out who the student really is, they probably won't be passing the class.

A Toronto bar is asking for help from their community following a string of recent break-ins.
Triple A Bar, located at 138 Adelaide Street East, launched a GoFundMe this week after reportedly being broken into for the third time.
The popular location took to Instagram on Wednesday to show the broken windows, doors, and other damages that the building had endured.
The fundraiser, which has already raised over $5,000, aims to help the restaurant get back on its feet after a difficult year.
"After this last break in (and hopefully it will be the last - this is our third) we had many reach out to see how we are, offering help, and some had even suggested starting one of these for us," an excerpt from the GoFundMe reads. "We are not sure what the future holds, but we are optimistic and are trying to hold on," it added.
Driscoll's version, which is hilariously titled "Ontario, Let Me Go (Play Golf)," has already racked up over 136,000 views on YouTube.
"Not being able to golf, and just the frustration over the lockdowns and COVID this past year, I thought it might cheer myself and others up to have a funny song about letting us golf," he told Narcity when asked about the inspiration behind the cover.
"I just thought it would bounce around between friends and family. I had no idea it would blow up like this...must be a lot of golfers in Ontario," he added.
Referencing Joey's character having changed his lifestyle following a pay raise, Victoria warns that "lifestyle creep can ruin you" and that "the reality is, if you don't know what to do with it, your money can go as fast as it came."
When discussing the character Ross comically bringing a couch upstairs without the aid of professional movers, Victoria points out that "getting help from the right professionals is not an expense, it's an investment."
