The exam was in June 1987 and my fragile memory suggests it was at an examination centre in Redcliffe.
In two hours we had to pick four topics out of fourteen and I wrote on covenant traditions, prophetic vocation, apocalyptic literature and the reform of Josiah.
I got a passing grade only, despite my notes suggesting I did get a fair bit of work done in between exhaustion, etc. That semester I also learnt to do an appendicectomy, pin fractured hips and coagulate bladder tumours amongst other things. Thankfully, I became neither a surgeon nor an Old Testament scholar but I don’t think it hurts to have dabbled.
