How well do you think you’d perform on a spelling and grammar test right now? There’s only one way to find out, by taking this quiz! All you have to do is choose the correct spelling of the words given to you based on the sentences you are provided with. Sounds easy enough, right? Perhaps, but if you have been out of school for awhile now, or were never all that great at English and composition to begin with, then this quiz may be trickier than you originally thought it would be!

As we all know, there’s a lot of different rules governing grammar, spelling, composition, and proper sentence structure that we never stop to actually think about. Stuff like that becomes second nature once we reach a certain age and it rarely, if at all, factors into our daily lives. Plus, in the high-tech world we live in today most of us simply rely on spell check to correct our spelling errors in emails and messages. Even if we make syntax mistakes, it usually gets ignored or overlooked. That’s why more and more people are turning into bad spellers.

Another thing that’s affecting our spelling abilities is the shortening and abbreviations of sentences with SMS text message shortcuts like “OMG” and “LOL.” Such types of abbreviations are widely overused and render having to spell words correctly a useless skill. Not to mention how maddening they can be to understand. For the more obscure terms you have to look them up in special dictionaries devoted to tracking their meanings!

But I digress. Take this quiz to see whether or not you have managed to retain the lessons you were taught all those years ago on the subject of grammar and spelling. If you excelled in English and enjoyed it, then you’ll likely find this quiz easy and you can use it to jog your memory on the subject. For all those not so great at spelling, good luck!

Do you remember taking annual spelling tests back in grade school? Usually your teacher would hand out a list of words to memorize on Monday and by Friday you’d have to be familiar enough with them to pass a quiz. Every grade had its own set of words that you’d learn, which got progressively harder as you built up a vocabulary. Looking back on it, all those tests were a big part of our formative years and who knows how many words you ended up learning because of them.

How do you think you would fare if you were to take a third grade spelling test right now? Would you pass or fail?! By the time you were in third grade you were probably around 8 or 9 years old. The average third grade student begins to learn all sorts of new stuff like multiplication and division, basic science, and American history. They also start reading harder, more advanced books across different genres, so they’re constantly being exposed to new words.

Some of the new terms they are learning may look familiar, but are totally different from what they’ve already been exposed to. That’s because many words sound exactly alike, yet their meanings and spellings are either completely different or slightly off by just a letter or two. That makes them really easy to mess up or confuse!

Even though we slowly forget lots of that we’ve learned over time, things like spelling and grammar tend to stick with us. Unless of course you’re a terrible speller and always have been! See where your spelling skills fall and work your way through these 23 questions which cover a variety of words that the average pupil learns in third grade. According to the makers of the quiz, Playbuzz, only about 4% of the population are able to score a perfect 23/23 on this spelling test. Even if you can’t ace it, all that you really need to get is at least 17/23 right in order to pass, so try it now to see if you are as smart as a 3rd grader, and good luck!
