    I only got 14/23.

    Ya know, I think the multiple choice layout makes it harder. If you just asked me to to spell a word, I'd probably get it right. But looking at the other choices makes me second-guess myself.

    I was worried that it being a UK-based test would skew things for us Yanks (colour, defence, etc.) but all of the words appear to be part of the universal English lexicon.



    I scored a 16 which is pretty good for me as I'm a woeful speller.

    You scored 10 out of a possible 23

    Hmmn. You really need to try harder. If you were still in school, and it was the 1950s, you'd definitely be getting your knuckles rapped.

    16/23 here.


    I'm pissed--I was thinking I'd miss no more than three at the most.

    14 out of 23...doing the test in only a couple of minutes and online makes it tough for me... it is easier to type it out (w/o spellcheck of course) or write it down to tell if i spelled a word correctly. kudos to all who did better, ha ha to those who did worse. [​IMG] just kidding!

    ... 11/23.. i always second guess myself when it comes to spelling.. i think if i would have went with my first instinct i would have had 18/23.. oh well.
