Are you smarter than an 11th-grader? Here’s a cute little test to gauge your English skills.
The questions you’ll find behind the link are taken from the SAT, the standardized exam that high school juniors in the U.S. take before applying to college. A few years ago the SAT was revamped to include more analysis of writing and grammar.
The new grammar content probably comes from the Test of Standard Written English, or TSWE, which used to be administered in tandem with the SAT. Can anyone confirm in the comments whether the questions were taken from there?
I remember cramming for the TSWE at twelve years old to gain admittance to a summer writing program. It was the first time I had to study grammar.
I don’t recall what I scored then, (I did get into the program), but this time I can dutifully report a 7/7.
How will you fare?
