History-nerd' fails latest exam after finding out his extensive knowledge of French tanks won't be tested

Shock and awe swept 9 Blue's history lesson today as class nerd Toby failed the latest exam. Though capable of naming every tank used by the French Army as well as every major confrontation in the Pacific War, it turns out this kind of knowledge was useless in the face of this exam's question: "What were the socio-political factors that lead to the start of WW2". Reports indicate that Toby's lack of actual critical thinking skills and bruised ego led him to dispute his teacher's marking, proving his metal by listing off the name of every plane used in the British Air Force.
