From this point forward, all commenters are required to participate in The Commonly Confused Words Test and score within 10% of my own score:

Beginner: 93%
Intermediate:100%
Advanced: 93%
Expert: 61%

Everyone in my age group scored lower than I did, which is pretty darn sad.  Comments written in text-message format ("U NO") are just getting deleted outright.  I can't take it any more.  Unless you have a good excuse (for example, statments like, "German is my first language, sorry for my poor use of English", which are often better phrased than most comments I get from native English speakers) poor language skills are just going to get tossed.  I should write a comment plugin that deletes comments with poor grammar.  (But I shouldn't write one that deletes posts with poor grammar, because then you'd have nothing to comment oh, eh?)

This is good enough to comment, right?
I'm not natively speaking English, and had to drop English class this year, due to a very limited schedule... (I'm 17 by the way)

"You scored 93% Beginner, 93% Intermediate, 87% Advanced, and 72% Expert!"

I agree with Sheldon, something's up with the stats. It's telling me 100% of takers had lower scores as well. *goes through clicking random answers* Same thing, definitely broken.

Does this mean I can comment on your blog? No? How bout this?

o 100% had lower Beginner scores.
o 100% had lower Intermediate scores.

Now can I? Or should I have said may I?

93% Beginner

I am an English genius, my friend.

I gotted the same results as numero 1. jk

Interestingly, I received 93% for the first three and 50% for expert and it told me that I beat 100% of all the scores in my age group, much like theMike.

I'm thinking their test statistics are not working correctly. Unless of course I am in a different age group.

This is what I got:
Very Special Case
You scored 26% Beginner, 86% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 77% Expert!
I don't know how you did it, but you boggle my mind! You got at least 75% of the intermediate, advanced, and expert questions correct, but you got 75% or less in the beginner section. How is this possible? Were you just guessing?????? Either way...

100% Beginner, 86% Intermediate, 81% Advanced, and 77% Expert
To my excuse, it's 2am and I'm tired, tipsy and german ;-)

Hehe just joking, I am actually quite eloquent when I can be bothered...w00t! :)

After 5 years of studying English at college I had hoped for better than this:

English Genius

86% Beginner
100% Intermediate
93% Advanced
77% Expert

I have suspicions that these test results are completely bogus.

...especially after so many people did better than me. ;)

If only I was like that in French and German too! Owen, maybe you're just having a bad day...

Something is really off. The first time, I scored Li'l Bit - 0% Beginner, 0% Intermediate, 0% Advanced and 65% Expert.
The second time, same answers, Advanced - 93% Beginner, 100% Intermediate, 100% Advanced, and 72% Expert

At this rate, I should test again! At least I'm going in the right direction...

Advanced

I can see quite a few did better on Expert. Hmmmmm. Clearly the rest of you are cheating.

I found the link to this test on your site. Found your site because of Messy Christian. I got an English Genius score.
