    'Came out for the test'?

    Can I say 'this passage came out for the test' to mean 'this passage was on the test'? I've heard this before and I'd like to know if it's acceptable.

    No, try, "this passage came from the test".

    Oops, sorry I didn't explain myself properly. Let's say there's an article that was in a French newspaper that I read a few months ago. Can I say it 'came out' on the French exam (like as a comprehension passage)?

    "It came up in the French exam".
