Mr and Mrs 50 Plus are giving you the chance to win 1 of 3 pairs of quiz books written to find out if you’re smarter than a Millennial or if you’re smarter than a Baby-Boomer.
“Are exams getting easier?” This headline is in newspapers every August when national results are published. Of course, we all tend to look at the world through rose-tinted glasses and nothing is rosier than the past. Thus, we believe that we had it harder when we were young. We got by just fine without mobile phones and computers and learning was an altogether more difficult business – especially exams. Are they getting easier or are our children getting smarter?
What better way to come to your own conclusion on this thorny subject than to take yourself back to that nerve-racking moment when the invigilator uttered those portentous words. “Okay, you may turn over your paper and begin”? Are You Smarter Than a Baby Boomer? gives you the chance to inhabit the mind of a post-war student. Are You Smarter Than a Millennial? gives you the chance to inhabit the mind of a student of the 1990s or 2000s. Test your wits on genuine questions from mathematics, verbal and non-verbal reasoning examinations from that bygone era and find out if you measure up.
