Medusa Mythology Exam
The International Competition For Mythology Enthusiasts
Last year, the Medusa Mythology Exam moved the mailing address; this year, the Exam is moving the testing dates.
The exam's theme: "Heracles--the 1st Avenger"
The results packets will be sent out on January 15. Please take into consideration
the time involved in sending a package from Northern Virginia to your school.
Score results and the answer key will be posted once the results packages have been sent out.
PLEASE NOTE: Last year's snow, coupled with mandatory state testing, was almost as deadly for Medusa as encountering Perseus. In order to prevent further conflict, the new Medusa Mythology Exam dates will be the last week of November and the first two weeks of December (see dates given above). Please check the registration form for registration information.
Information: The Medusa Exam is open to public, private, and home-school students.
Public or private school students must be in the 6th grade or higher;
home-school students must be eleven years old. Latin, English, and
home-school teachers are encouraged to enroll their interested
students! While the exam has a different theme every year, the exam is
always a 40-question, multiple-choice format, and students are allowed 40
minutes to complete the exam. Teachers administer
the exam during the last week of November (alternative dates are
possible if your school's vacation is during this time frame).
Awards: Corona Olivae and Corona Laurea certificates; bronze, silver, and gold medal awards with certificates.
