Were there any question on T Tauri, Y Orionis, or any evolution stage that isn't basic evolution?

Nope. And it was only 65 questions, way shorter than last year. they asked about Wolf 359 and flare stars too i think. But no T Tauri or Y Orionis stars ...

Thanks! :D Me and my partner were surprised enough to get 2nd, when they announced Meteo as the Silver Anniversary Scholarship Event, that was even MORE surprising :lol:

I thought this test was surprisingly easy for a National test (Although I still got 23rd :? ...)

Did anyone else feel that way?

Yes I thought the test was extremely easy. I actually have a feeling I know what I got wrong. I got 4th ( :D :D :D :D ) and I bet that the 6 medal places were separated by about 10 points.

O my gosh. Congratulations on 4th! :) I love stars, no matter what place I get, but placing at Nationals is HUGE (as I'm sure you know...)
