Pardon My English

I took this test (thanks to Ray at Raging Kraut):

English Genius
You scored 100% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 93% Advanced, and 83% Expert!
You did so extremely well, even I can't find a word to describe your excellence! You have the uncommon intelligence necessary to understand things that most people don't. You have an extensive vocabulary, and you're not afraid to use it properly! Way to go!

Thank you so much for taking my test. I hope you enjoyed it!

For the complete Answer Key, visit my blog:

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 62% on Beginner
You scored higher than 76% on Intermediate
You scored higher than 35% on Advanced
You scored higher than 84% on Expert

About the comparatives: I think the percentages refer to the total population of people who answered questions in a particular section.

Anyway, I suppose reading a lot of popular fiction (P.G. Wodehouse, Ian Fleming, Raymond Chandler and Rex Stout) does affect one's English.
