75%. Wonder if they would consider grading on the curve. Guess not.

Hum, sounds like a lot of naturalized citizens on this board. Does that mean immigrants are more interested in ER than the born in the USA crowd?

I have often thought the same. Even among Canadian members, there are several who are immigrants, though they would not post here in this thread. Perhaps immigrants tend to be LBYM, compared to the natives.

I scored 95% (got 'em all except the Chief Justice), but I wouldn't have done nearly that well if it had not been a multiple choice test.

Isn't "revision" the English English for what we call "studying" on this side of the Pond?

85%. My misses were from the colonial and revolutionary -early nationhood periods. Since this is likely the high point of our history, I should go back and review.

Yes, British kids revise for exams where US kids study. Good spot.
