Girl gets 100 marks for 19 words essay, here’s what she wrote


A student in US managed to get full marks for her essay even though it was only 19 words.

Allison Garrett was asked to write a film review. That’s where she saw a clever, cheeky opportunity.

She chose the 1999 cult classic movie ‘Fight Club’ which stars Brad Pitt, Helena Bonham and Edward Norton, for her review.

Fight Club, Essay,

The movie is a story of an underground, obviously illegitimate, fight club.

And it has a rule: “The first rule of fight club is you do not talk about fight club.”

This rule became the most famous quote from the movie as it defined how such fight clubs operate without coming into notice.

So when she sat down writing the essay, she just wrote: “The first rule of fight club is you do not talk about fight club.

“That’s it. That’s the essay.”

Essay, Fight Club,

Yes, that’s it. Only 19 words.

Sharing a photo of her essay and the score on Twitter, she wrote: “the assignment description for essay 5 was to write a review on a movie that we had seen. the opportunity arose, and i took my chances..”

When she submitted the essay, she also wrote to the teacher, explaining her position.

“I saw an opportunity, and I took it. I cannot say that I am sorry because that would be a lie. Am I proud? Yes.”

Essay, Fight Club,

To her surprise, she got full marks, a 100 out of 100 for the essay, although, not without a warning letter.

Her teacher wrote: “I struggled over this grade for a long time. I finally decided you get a grade for a laugh and how relevant your review is for this particular movie.

“Let me warn you: do NOT try this kind of thing with other professors; they may not have my sense of humour.

“Score – 100/100.”

Essay, Fight Club,
