Commonly Confused Words Test

While reading my daily dose of New Links, I encountered The Commonly Confused Words Test.

Note that the author took into consideration British (and therefore, Australian) English in the test. It’s a test with 40 fill-in-the-blank questions with multiple-choice answers. It will mostly test you on your ability to differentiate between words like they’re/their/there and you’re/your.

I’ve always thought I have a fair grasp of English grammar and spelling except for the occasional boo-boos due to rushing or me being in a confused state. So, I took the test to see how I’ll do. Here is my test result:

English Genius
You scored 100% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 77% Expert!

You did so extremely well, even I can’t find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don’t. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you’re not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!

Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

  • You scored higher than 65% on Beginner
  • You scored higher than 70% on Intermediate
  • You scored higher than 80% on Advanced
  • You scored higher than 66% on Expert

Yay! I did very well. How about you?

Raquel: Here’s my result. Darn, should have really paid attention to the either/or choices; could have had a better result. Oh well… it’s good enough. 🙂

You scored 100% Beginner, 93% Intermediate, 93% Advanced, and 83% Expert!
