    For your Pedants: Grammar and Punctuation Test

    One for the Pedantic Geeks to test themselves on: Grammar and punctuation test: take our quiz | Teacher Network | Guardian Professional

    No cheating allowed

    I got 12/14 on my first attempt (after a glass of wine.... well that's my excuse anyway!)

    12/14 for me. Disappointed, especially as I don't know which two I got wrong, but guessing it was the last two.

    11/14 which I'm pleased with. Got confused with my antonyms and prepositional phrases.

    I didn't try because I know I will get a disappointing score.

    Alas, only 12, got the last two wrong. Should've got 13, and guessed at 14 as I had completely forgotten.

    Do I have to leave the pedants group now?

    Nah - Still a pretty good score I reckon. Anyone under 12 should leave though!
