Great British Intelligence Test

Post by Kevin Thurlow » Thu Jan 07, 2021 10:03 pm

I participated in this study and they invite others to do so. Apparently, I'm really good at spatial reasoning, both 2D and 3D, and verbal comprehension, but not that good at planning or memory, and they worked that out without looking at any of my chess games...

It is a joint Imperial College/BBC venture.

Many thanks for sharing this - my score seems similar to yours.... I think there were some sections where time was important but that was not apparent to me ... some where I was correct with each item but overall my score was low because I had not done as many as others.... but good exercise

Nice ones, Tim.
