In Which I Do Not Escape History

As befits my history as a B student, I present these quiz results.

No, seriously, it was both surprisingly and depressingly accurate, insofar as it concerns forcing me to remember my comparatively lackluster high school years.

You paid attention during 84% of high school!

68-84% Pretty good, you know that there are libraries and newspapers, and you remember what you've read. You were a child that wasn't left behind!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

Several of the questions are poorly framed.

I wouldn't put too much stock in this. It's easy to create a test with bad questions, trick choices, and revisionist information.

For one example: the USSR was both an ally of Germany and of the US at different points in WWII. So what's the "right" answer?

Heh. I thought the same thing when I viewed the USSR/Germany question.

Don't worry; I mostly look on these things with amusement. Sometimes it's a tad more wry than others, but being a B student isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Neither is buttonholing the prof before the grades are posted and making your case for an A-minus. This sort of thing doesn't permit that, so I say feckut. :)

Yup - although when I got my B and B+ marks, I wasn't too interested in bettering the marks; in 6th and 7th grade, I was more interested in a) drama club; b) boys; c) science fiction, and not necessarily in that order.

Dramatic boy science fiction is the BEST. Other word orders work too. I am planning on becoming a science fiction drama boy any day now. --mmb
