List of the Most Outrageous Excuses for Not Doing Homework

Many students don’t do their homework properly or even don’t do it at all sometimes. Often this doesn’t go unnoticed by teachers, and students need to come up with some excuses. Usually, they just make up fake stories. The list below illustrates some of the most outrageous excuses that you shouldn’t tell to your teacher.

  1. Assignments were eaten by a dog.
  2. Some students use this excuse if they have a dog. Others are brave enough to tell this to a teacher even if they don’t have animals at all. Nevertheless, this isn’t likely to work.

  3. You don’t remember getting homework.
  4. This excuse is also very popular among students. However, teachers rarely accept such an answer, because even if you don’t remember getting any assignments, you always can ask your classmates about this matter.

  5. You forgot your papers at home.
  6. This excuse looks realistic, but has weak sides too. If you claim that your assignments are done, but you just forgot them, your teacher may ask you some questions related to that assignments. It’s likely that you won’t be able to answer them.

  7. You didn’t understand your homework.
  8. Such an excuse might actually work if you tell it to your math teacher, for example. However, it won’t excuse you. If you don’t know how to solve a particular assignment, you should consult your teacher before the deadline, but not after.

  9. Your computer crashed and you didn’t save your work.
  10. Students often use this excuse when doing assignments on their computers. However, you should keep in mind that many teachers now are also familiar with computers and know about auto save. Moreover, they can see whether you were online through your social network accounts.

  11. You had too many assignments from other classes.
  12. This excuse isn’t likely to persuade your teacher. He or she may ask other students from your class whether their homework is done. Eventually, your teacher will see that the problem isn’t in the large amount of tasks, but rather in your organizational skills.

  13. You were absent when assignments were given.
  14. Students continue telling this story to their teachers despite the fact that it’s very easy to check whether their words are true. Teachers always look in attendance registers in such cases. It’s likely that your teacher won’t be glad to see that you lied to him or her.

Try not to use any of these excuses and do your home tasks in time.
