Hope in the Heartland

The ultimate final exam

Peabody Bible Church

Final exam questions are, shall we say, underappreciated. Some of the answers are too.

Here is how some students answered a few questions on a final exam in their science class:

  • Define H2O and CO2. One student wrote, “H2O is hot water; CO2 is cold water.”
  • On a question concerning how a city purifies its water, one student said, “A city purifies its water by filtering it and then forcing it through an aviator.” I think all pilots just flinched.
  • In response to a request to name the four seasons, another young scholar replied, “The four seasons are: salt, pepper, mustard, and vinegar.”
  • And yet another, when asked how we get dust, said, “The main cause of dust is the janitor.”
  • Finally, one pupil defined the spinal column as, “A long bunch of bones — the head sits on the top and you sit on the bottom.”

Yep, the future is in their hands. Seriously, I understand that preparing for tests can be hard and taking them can be even less enjoyable. However, there is one final exam that is more important than all others and we all will take it. It will be an open book test with only one question, “What do you believe about Jesus?” I hope you pass that test. By the way, we never know when we are going to be called to take it. Are you ready for your ultimate final exam?
