Heres are links to the 2011 Irish Junior Certificate Religeous Education Exam. An exam that is actually taken, in some schools as a compulsory subject, by kids of around age 15.

Even the fact that they have a higher and lower level course on this amuses me.

"Ordinary" Level Paper

"Higher" Level Paper

I particularly like "People sometimes turn to work as a source of meaning in life. Name another source of meaning in life." and have no idea how they grade the answer to that one. Wonder how many kids wrote "XBox".

Or "Humanism holds the view that........" should be fun given I have met a number of Humanists who do not even agree on the answer to that one!

Below are some links to the grading scheme for the previous years paper too, to give you an idea how Ireland grades these things.

"Ordinary Level"

"Higher Level"
