How smart are you?

The BBC Magazine has a two part quiz.

Part 1 is this week and is on English, let me know how you did. Even allowing for a STUPID mistake I got 17.

I expect POSH people in Surrey to get 20.

Next week is maths.

I don't know what POSH Surreyites will get; I got 19. And it was a really really simple question that I got wrong on punctuation - which I'm usually quite hot on. DOH

20. Always been good at grammar and spelling, because in y7 I had an old-fashioned English teacher who thought that in order to be able to write properly you needed to know all the rules.

Damned sensible if you ask me. Even if I was bored stupid doing correction exercises for months before were were allowed to write stories.
