Test your financial literacy for the chance to win an iPad Air

Anyone who knows me AT ALL knows that I love a quiz. Seriously. I LOVE a quiz. My whole sense of self-worth comes from doing well in tests.

When Totally Money asked me if I’d like to take part in a financial literacy quiz then I was on it before they even told me there was the chance to win an iPad Air; a place on the leader board was prize enough for me. I know about money right? I have an economics degree for God’s sake, I felt sure I could smash this quiz.

*pumps fist*


Turns out that having studied economics in the previous millennium doesn’t guarantee top marks in a finance quiz. I was a little flustered knowing I was against the clock but still, it was really no excuse for only getting 9 out of 16. I should probably hand all of my credit cards over to a grown-up right now, just in case.

Fortunately you don’t need to score top marks to go into the prize draw, so there is always the thought of that to make me feel better. After you’ve done the quiz just click the ‘Win an iPad Air’ button to enter. It’s with all the sharing buttons near the top and looks like this:

Take the quiz now by clicking on the image below and let me know how you score! 

I will sit and wait nicely.

All done? How did you do?

      Was there not a form? I think there is meant to be a form. Let me ask…

    How do you enter? I did the Quiz & got 10 – I double guessed 2 that I would have got right if I’d stuck with the first thing I thought LOL!

      Well that’s a relief! Not sure I’d trust you doing my accounts otherwise ;-)

    10 out of 16, it’s so difficult to concentrate when you can see the clock running

      It really is isn’t it?? It’s why I know I’d be no good on Countdown.

    You scored 10 / 16in 00:04:10.0
    Congratulations, you are one of the Lehman Brothers! You have notions of what financial literacy means, we’ll give you that, but it seems that you really don’t know what to do with your knowledge. Good effort though!

    I got 9! However the clock was distracting me and I’m running on no sleep in over 24 hours so there was no chance I was going to be successful at any mental arithmetic and I dint have any calculator devices to hand or I’d have gotten a few more correct! I’ll never make an accountant or a financial advisor of any sort though lol
