A photo of what is reportedly Sarah Palin's high school transcripts went viral for the shockingly below-average numbers.

Palin, 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor, was born Sarah Heath and grew up in Wasilla, Alaska. The grades, which were reportedly pulled from Nexis’ public records search, show an SAT score of 841 -- shockingly low for somebody who was said to be an honors student.

The image first circulated in 2008, in the run-up to the presidential election, and there was speculation the transcripts were fake. The documents' authenticity was never confirmed, reports Gawker.

Palin has recently come out as a vocal supporter for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, and most recently made headlines for criticizing establishment Republicans -- who she said have been on a mission to destroy “hard-hitting conservatives.”

“Establishment Republicans (Wall Street and K Street agenda dictators) have teamed up to take out true commonsense conservatives," she wrote in a Facebook post. "The Tea Party wave of 2010 sent a class of hard-hitting conservatives to Washington, D.C., and those who kept their promises have had a positive impact.

“From the Budget Control Act that would finally limit spending, to fighting the Gang of 8's job-killing amnesty, to opposing tax increases and unconstitutional gun control measures, the true conservatives we hired to represent us have made a difference."

The post was written in support of House member Dr. Paul Gosar, with Palin saying the Republican establishment is “out for his blood.”

“They've found a RINO to back against our candidate and have vowed to spend up to $1,000,000 to defeat him! Their goal is to replace Dr. Gosar with a malleable politician who has promised, right off the bat, to capitulate, by 'compromising... to work with the other side.' In other words, to sell us out, raise taxes and spend more of your hard earned money,” Palin wrote.
