100-year-old 8th grade test going viral

Posted: Updated:

The eighth grade exam used in Bullitt County, Kentucky back in 1912 is going viral online.

The test, posted on the Bullitt County History website, asks a series of math, history, grammar and spelling questions.

Bullitt County Schools were mostly one-room schools in those days, scattered around the rural county.

Students came together at the county courthouse once or twice a year to take this "Common Exam."

Historians say it was a big deal.

According to the Bullitt County History website, the local newspaper urged students to do well, even urging seventh graders that it was not too early to start preparing.

The Bullitt County History Museum has also compiled a list of the answers.

Do you think you could pass it? Give it a try.
