About This Quiz

Whether you love it or hate it, everyone has to go to school at some point during their lives. Whether you stopped right after high school, or you find yourself in a career which requires continuing education classes, school and classes can be complicated for many people. Getting an education is one of the many hoops we all have to jump through. So, were you the teacher's pet or a class clown? Were you always nailing every assignment, even if you didn't need the extra credit, or did you not even want to show up to class? Most of us fall somewhere in the middle, so it's OK either way.

So, can we pin down exactly what kind of student you were back in the day? Were you always the first person to raise your hand in class or were you somehow always late? Some people consider school the best years of their life and others look back on them with absolute and total dread. These experiences can really shape your whole life and who you eventually become. Answer our questions, and we will do our best to guess where you fall on the scale of being a good apple or tough noodle!
