Today's BWOTD is one I have caused confusion with at school, when I asked some students one day if they needed to revise!
"The kids have exams next week and need to revise"
'Revise' = study
So if you're child is studying for an exam, they would be revising in the UK.
We also have another word for the same things - swot! Not to be confused with highly armed SWAT teams or swatting a fly. Again we sometimes say we are 'swotting up' for exams and I have no idea where this comes from?
You may also have noted me using 'exams' instead of 'tests/testing'. We use test for things like eye test, driving test and you seem to use exam for these - it's all arse backwards!
So there you go 3 BWOTD's for the price of 1 today :-)
