Middle School Was Much Harder in 1912
Check out this test and let me know how many you guys get right. Honestly its harder than any test I ever took in middle or high-school. Says something about the changes in our educational expectations.

i agree with you, although many countries, including the US and Korea (my home country) moved away from these types of exams because it's about rote memorization and not critical thinking. the problem today is that education fosters neither
True point, but I would argue that rote memorization is actually harder than critical thinking. Though I guess it depends on base intelligence. For a smart person critical thinking will almost always be easier.
