In… I think it was my Maths O-levels, there were several sections; one of them consisted of a number of longer questions of which you only had to do a certain number (two out of five, or something like that). I think I did three, or maybe four, because they said that if you do more than two, they count the best two, and I wasn't sure whether I had got the answer for one of them right.

On the other hand, my chemistry teacher at the time would also frequently have exams with such a "pick m out of n" section, but he specified that if you did more than that, he would only mark the first m, since he didn't appreciate the extra work of marking all of the ones you might have done.
