National Numeracy Challenge

I always thought I was ok with numbers and numeracy in general, enough to get by with on a day to day basis.  When I saw this challenge on the MSE website I clicked on the link and took the test.  Boy, it really gave my brain a workout and I scored 87 out of 100  87%...not bad... but not as good as Martin Lewis!  I think he got 98% The test is really good because it pinpoints any weaknesses (mine was interpreting graphs and pie charts accurately) so that you can work on any weak areas.  If you fancy having a go yourself the link is here:

It costs nothing but about 30 minutes of your time.  Go on I DARE you ;) x

Has anyone had a go yet?

Have a brilliant day folks x


  1. Thanks for that - it was so good to give my brain a numerical workout. I've always loved words more than numbers, and the last time I did anything like this was doing my skills tests at uni 9 years ago. I've just taken it and got 93% , which I'm thrilled with!

  2. Wow! Well done Scarlet! It tests the brain cells but it's fun too isn't it :)

  3. Thanks for the challenge info-great fun and average of 87% which was pleasing as the score was lowered by the things I always get wrong! I'm much more linguistic but enjoyed the nrain workout. Catriona

    1. Brilliant result! Well done Lanniesmum!
