A 1912 eighth grade exam paper was recently donated to the Bullitt County History Museum in Kentucky, and the paper has drawn huge attention from people wanting to find out how students were tested a century ago compared to now.

Many have commented on the questions in the paper; with some being labeled "easy" and others being slammed for being just "plain weird."

David Lee Strange, a volunteer at the Bullitt County History museum, has said, "For us, this is just fascinating. It puts us in the mindset of 1912."

The eighth grade exam from more than a century ago had numerous questions including some of following subjects: Arithmetic, grammar, geography, physiology, history, and civil government.

One question asked, "Name two Presidents who have died in office: three who were assassinated."

Another questioned: "How does the liver compare in size with other glands in the human body? Where is it located? What does it secrete?"

Another question that has been rebuked by many as being too easy for a present day eighth grade class was a math question simply saying, "Solve 35-7 plus 4."
