Today we did the SSU (Sunday School Union) Scripture Exam. We do it annually, memorise verses (this year I memorised eight) and read certain set passages from Scripture. During the exam we are required to write out our memory verses and short and long answers on the passages.
I usually manage to finish first every year of the people who are doing my grade, some of the ones below and the ones above. :-) The thing is, I don't know if that is a good thing or not! Some people only doing several grades higher than me were still going after, like, 2+ hours. I was done after about 40 minutes. But *brightly* it doesn't seem to have made that much of an impact on my marks. I usually get in the 90th percentile. Once (I've never done this before or since) I managed to get 99% and first in NZ! But I don't see that happening again this year. :-( Sadly. I didn't spend as much time as I should have studying the material! Ah well. Maybe next year.
In my 'did you know' lists like the one above, I have in the past been told off for unknowingly giving the wrong information and actually not giving true facts. I'm sorry if I do that again! I get my facts off other websites so please don't tick me off if they are slightly wrong.
