Wow! I had a fairly good knowledge of the grammar (not that I apply it all that often...) and I know quite a lot about anything ancient and obscure. The big problem for me was the literature. Note to self: read less fanfiction and more substance.

Well, most of this I had read/learned in my senior year of high school Enlgish, which was about six years ago, so I'm pretty amazed I remembered it.

Now I'm just wondering why my brain won't let me remember French also.

Nothing wrong with reading fanfiction! Some of that stuff they were talking about in that quiz was way boring. Which is why I never went for English as a major.

Shakespeare rocks!!

Ah. I'm not there yet (in the equivalent British system) so I can feel proud of my score as it is.

I got higher than 60%, but what amused me was most of it was either guessing, common sense or random things I imagine most British people would know - the chaucer, shakespear and 1066 questions in particular (though I had no idea about if he had a sister...). I'm really not an English nerd but maybe being English rubbed off on the test, who knows.
