    All okay's come with a caveat and that caveat is that I am envisioning the language context the same as Anupumh is envisioning it.

    I would like more people to cast their views on this. I have heard it to the other way round. Teacher takes a test and student gives a test.

    A student takes a test, a teacher gives a test.
