Since we’re a bunch of Alfred Einsteins who use the Pythagorean theorem on the regular, of course we aced this 8th grade final exam from 1912 … with a little help from our smartphones. The 100-year-old test, which is pictured in full below, has been given to a Kentucky museum.
While it’s not as difficult as of our quizzes, it covers a lot more ground — spelling, reading, arithmetic, grammar, geography, physiology, civil government, and history. Shockingly, there are no questions pertaining to the Kardashians, Anthony Weiner, or the Royal Baby. This of course means the info it does possess is essentially worthless for today’s youth.
