Games & Quizzes

From here you can access a variety of Games and Quizzes on the Classics Pages.

The Really Hard Classics Quiz

The Really Hard Classics Quiz is back - 25 questions on classical subjects against the clock.

The questions are selected at random from a pool of hundreds - no two quizzes will ever be the same.

If you pass (90% required) you will be eligible for the coveted Classics Pages Dipoma, widely considered the equivalent of a First in Greats. Retakes are allowed. A certificate has yet to be awarded to a Johnson, B or Gove, M.

If (like me) you have a slow connection, it may take a few minutes to load up - once the picture of Oedipus and the Sphinx appears, you are almost there!
