Tricky primary school test leaves players baffled as exam resurfaces from 1950s

Think you've got what it takes to score full marks in this test? Well let's see about that.

The 15-question test, which was shared on Quizly, was taken by 10-year-old's in the UK and Northern Ireland over 60 years ago.

It was an exam used to determine which secondary school they went to so it's a pretty huge deal.

As well as testing someone's spelling and punctuation, it also poses questions in the history and geography department too.

So if you think you've got what it takes, see if you can score huge marks in this test.
