Exam screw-up grills students on robot warfare in Russian Revolution11/15/2012
You know that recurring nightmare everyone has about having to take a high school test you haven't studied for? It came true for more than 5,000 Australian students taking an important end-of-school history exam on Wednesday afternoon. When they flipped over their exam papers, the high-schoolers were confronted with a question that apparently asked them how robots aided socialist revolutionaries during the Russian Revolution. Students were asked to comment on the well-known painting "Storming the Winter Palace on 25th October 1917," but the exam paper mistakenly included a doctored version with a humongous robot in the background. Exam authorities have promised that students confused by the screw-up will not be "disadvantaged" when their papers are graded. [Source]
