Australian Spelling Test
The sequel


 
 

If you liked our first spelling test give this one a go.

The first spelling test was to see if you could get the preferred Australian English spelling, and to be fair that can be tricky. This one there's no tricks. No tricky secondary spelling variations, but one way to spell.

All of the spellings shown were entered into Word Check in October 2017, by people checking the spelling of a word. The incorrect and correct spelling is what people entered. I've picked 20 words and whilst there's no tricks, getting 20 out of 20 the first time probably means you're a great speller, or very lucky.

See how good your spelling is.

Quiz results

Remember back in school when they'd give you a rating of A to F. Just for fun I decided to add the old fashioned ratings to the spelling test sequel. In reality it doesn't matter as it's just a bit of fun.

Based on what I'm seeing in Word Check these words often trick people which is why we're seeing four or more spelling versions. I found it interesting to read the variation and thought others might find this interesting as well. The spelling test sequel is one way I can share this information with others.

For those who want to know how I went on the Spelling Test Sequel the first time. I got a B+ so as you can see these words trick me to.

In this quiz I've also added the number of turns. Keep trying and see how many turns it takes you to get them right. The problem is often you doubt yourself and your score goes down, but eventually you'll find the words you didn't get right.

I've included postcode on the off chance the results of this test can be used for research. Skip the field if you wish.

Most importantly is have fun with the quiz.
