Directed by Pino Amenta

When he sleeps through his alarm, Alex misses the bus and arrives late to Mr Norris' maths class. His punishment? A surprise test for everyone, which officially makes him the most unpopular person in class. His solution? Stop Parker and Howe from beating him up by stealing the answers!

When he's almost caught red-handed with the answer sheet, he finds an escape route through the air-conditioning vent. Only, unbeknownst to him, his sneaky move is quickly apparent to Norris when Alex shows up in the test with his face covered in vent grime.

The next time around, Alex makes sure he doesn't miss the bus — surely this means there'll be no maths test? But Simon has planned ahead and stolen an answer sheet for the test. Convinced this will backfire, Alex decides to return the answer sheet. He gets sprung by Norris, whose punishment is … to throw a surprise maths test for the whole class.

Alex is back in the bad books and desperately gives Simon's stash of answer sheets to Parker and Howe. After the test, they realise Simon had the wrong answer sheets and Alex must once again crawl through the vents to try and fix things. Will he succeed or will Norris just turn up the heat?
