doesn't mean you have fat legs. maybe he just gave you stick legs an d the art teacher was helping him. art teachers say things like that

Well, it has to be realistic. It's weird that her teacher is giving her hints btw, shouldn't she do her exam all on her own?

The model who had to come has maybe a better proportioned body. Maybe the sketch is partly graded on proportions. So since the situation is exceptional, she had to help her.

An art exam is different than a regular exam. It's generally more of a group critique that evaluates the progress of the student over the period of the class. The exam piece is generally worked on for a significant amount of time over a week or so instead of completed in one class. The teacher and other students can give input and make suggestions for improvement. It's not the same as just giving someone the answer, because the final product is still a product of the artist's skill, and the aim

OP, don't draw too many conclusions about what the teacher said and don't let yourself become blue. The teacher was probably green with envy of your beauty, just brush it off. If you don't feel comfortable doing that again, don't let your friend paint you into a corner. If your friend poses that question again you can always picture the humiliation you felt and respectfully decline.

Maybe the legs just looked like stick figure legs, so she just meant to proportion them correctly.

Yeah, this isn't a big deal, your friend has to learn to draw more proportionately. Her proportions were too narrow, this does not mean you are fat. If you can't deal with the teacher's honest critique, you probably shouldn't model in the future.
