I feel this one has just led to me bullying James McCartney (sorry James). Despite what I say, he can sing, he just has the stage presence of a potato- poor lad. He does seem like he'd be good craic once you don't say the words 'Paul' or 'Dad' to him. Really acerbic humour, he seems to like making the interviewer uncomfortable.

 

Someone made a compilation of his awkward moments on YT, poor fella.

And with that there is only one more test to go, it will be an intelligence test that will focus on your Beatles Knowledge.

 

It will be released Saturday. During this time you have three final days to take the tests and do any assignments you haven't. Once the intelligence test is releaced, no assignments or tests will be accepted. If you scored less than 132 on any assignment, you may redo it for more points. All test scores are final unless there are extenuating circumstances.

 

Here is a list of all the tests, for assignments you must go through the thread and find them that way. You can still join the school even now if you wish.

The Luck Test

The Music Test

The Writing Test

The World Music Test

The Charm Test

 

And after the intelligence test is done, your school avatars will fight using your test/assignment scores as their stats.

It is FINAL EXAM TIME!

 

Even if you haven't done any assignment up to this point, you may still do the final exam.

 

This will test your Beatle intelligence. You have two days to do the exam.

I graded all the assignments and am putting them into the avatars for the big karate match. As you can see, there are two new students here are their IDs

That leaves us with a grand total of 11 students. I put everyone into a bracket and people can bet on who they think will win. Just like how the Beatles bet on their own success, you will test your ability to judge and see if you can use data to predict outcomes!

 

Here is the bracket

Also, if you don't want to put in your email, you may put your predictions in a spoiler tag. I can't find a way to get rid of this 'feature' sorry

I'm glad I scored so highly on the final exam. I'm not sure where you're planning to go from here with the Challonge Bracket. Could you please explain.

I will simulate a fight between all the students using their test/assignment scores to determine the winner. A little bonus last day of school event where people can try and predict the winner.

 

This is like how even with all these factors, The Beatles still had to compete with other music acts of various skill to rise to the top. This tries to simulate real world competition since music is highly competitive.

 

After this than school will be over.
