My guess you are in the upper echelons of age? From back when an education meant something? In other words you know how to retain facts from what is going on around you and know how to use them to come to logical conclusions? It is a shame our young people can't do this.

I suggest you both re-read precisely what they've said there.  You may have just barely passed.  Let's say 70% or so (a C grade).  But they will claim you are "in the top 4%" of the population.  It's a come on.
Be careful what you wish for, you might get it.

I deliberately answered 3 questions wrong and guessed another 2 - but I am still stupid enough to remain in the top 4%  :party0011:

I couldn't even try from Russia - blocked - made a UK IP - and one of my questions was ..what is the currency of Greece? Roubles, DRACHMA OR Aurelus ..the answer is of course Euro  :laugh:

Still 'passed' .....

For some strange reason I didn't publish my 'results' to fbook....

Same here. I looked at other stuff on the site and it was also riddled with spelling mistakes.

I got all of them correctly.  I did guess on the first question (About the Greek word).   :thumbsup:   :8)   :king:
