Apart from English and History, which were both his favourite subjects, Churchill performed poorly in most every other subject, and described in one memoir how, when he took a two-hour Latin test, he left the sheet entirely blank except for his name, the number of the first question, and a blot and several smudges. He also twice failed the entrance exam for the Military College at Sandhurst, finally passing with the help of a military tutor, though only for cavalry class, which had lower standards than the infantry.
He was a terrible student! (10/20)
