So, my score was ridiculously bad. I knew the names of more countries than I could get credit for - I couldn't spell them correctly.

Guess I need to brush up on geography, particularly in Africa.

Didn't even make half of it. I did well enough in the tiny nations, but trying to remember the English names of some proved too big a time-sinker to score even average. But other than that, my geography could still do with a brush up!

I gave up when it said that England, Scotland and Wales weren't countries, and when it said Great Britain and the United Kingdom were the same.

Scoring
You scored 145/196 = 74%.
This beats or equals 75.8% of test takers.
The average score is 99.

On the first try. I knew Philipeans, but gave up trying to spell it after three tries. I did really well on Africa (gee, wonder why?) and South America, and so-so on Asia. The Former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe threw me, since they weren't independent countries when I was in school.
