Storyline

Following appalling grades the school is threatened with closure and the pupils dispersed until it is discovered that Bart has yet to sit his exam, which, if he passes, will save the school's future. He is very nervous but, with the accidental help of his pet beetle, manages to make the grade. Homer meanwhile discovers a parking meter, which he uses illegally to make money until Marge makes him donate the profits to a good cause. Written by don @ minifie-1

Nice Episode,
23 May 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A Test Before Trying is a great Simpsons episode with a really good storyline that kind of surprised they hadn't came up with something like this before,and also has plenty of really funny scenes.I liked the whole idea of the episode and found it very clever,and I also found the ending unexpectedly sweet.It was great to see Springfield Elementary completely rely on Bart Simpson,but he just carries on being himself.The episode is a lot of fun.

When the children of Springfield Elementary don't get good enough test scores to keep the school running,Bart,the only student who wasn't present to do the test,has to take the test and get a good enough score to save the school.
