About This Quiz

General knowledge is a funny thing.

For most people it's not all that important for daily life, yet for others having an expanded general knowledge is vital. Why? Well, if you know enough about a range of subjects, you can fit in just about anywhere. 

And it's not that hard to pick up. General knowledge is about following what's going on in the world around you. Try to catch a news bulletin every day.

I guarantee it will lead you to even more exciting finds.

A range of questions faces you, taking in many different general knowledge subjects. These questions span many ages, from ancient history to modern times. 

How do you think you will fare? Will you ace it?

Well, why not take the plunge and let's see what you can score.
