    When I gave a mark I had a hangover.

    Hello~ Can you help me say this naturally please?

    Lecturer: Hey guys,
    looking forwarding your all final exam results came out.
    But, I’m going to frank with you.
    ⓐWhen I gave a mark I was hanging over.
    ⓑWhen I gave a mark I had a hangover.
    So I marked between half asleep.
    Sorry for that.
    And I want you guys double check own paper, but do not change the answer. OK?

    Lecturer: Hey guys,
    I know you're all looking forward to getting your final exams back.
    But I’m going to be frank with you.
    ⓑWhen I gave out the marks I had a hangover.
    So I marked them half asleep.
    I'm sorry. ["Sorry for that" is fine, but it's too flippant even for something so ludicrous as this scenario]
    And I want you guys to double check your own paper. Just don't change the answers, OK?

    Just watch the lecturer get thrown out on his ear after this!
