General Knowledge

There are plenty of facts that are part of General Knowledge. You feel you ought to know these hard knobbly facts but you missed out in school, or they weren't part of fashionable educational theory, or it was all just too boring... Perhaps you're still in school, and feel that an online quiz might make revision slightly less tedious.

These quizes are interactive. They don't give you scores, or test you against time, or penalise you, or make you look stupid. You can chose a small part or tackle the full list. It's up to you. Try doing a bit at a time, and I'm sure that the knowledge will start to seep into your brain.
