Time to Get Back to the Books
Oops! Your results seem to indicate that you probably won't be winning any history scholarships anytime soon. There's no need to fret though, since very few things in life are as satisfying as delving deep into our world's history. There's just so much variety to discover that it'll never need to get boring or repetitive. In the words of Julius Caesar, "Experience is the teacher of all things," so go out there and immerse yourself in the world's history!
The Historical Hero
Congratulations on getting such a great result. It's great to see that some people still like to brush up on their historical knowledge from time to time, since you definitely couldn't have remembered all of that from your school days! Without the study of history, the world would be doomed to keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again, so good on you for keeping the tradition alive. In the words of Genghis Khan, "The strength of a wall is neither greater nor less than the courage of the men who defend it."
The Master Historian
Impressive! Your knowledge of historical figures and their deeds is absolutely unparalleled! Seeing as you're such a vast source of knowledge, we'd recommend that you consider joining a local, or possibly even national, quiz group. Just think of all the glory that's been bestowed upon great winners throughout the ages. The prize money's usually not too bad either! In the words of Alexander the Great, "There is nothing impossible to him who will try."
