The subbing test proved a popular feature on the previous incarnation of my site, so I've left it here. Thanks to all those who have left feedback.
The 100-word sub-editing test
How much do you really know about good English? Could you edit a daily newspaper or shouldn't you be let loose on a shopping list? Amateur, writer, journalist or editor, see how well you do in this test.
On the next page is a 100-word article. It needs editing. But are you up to the job?
There is no time limit, but it shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. Count the changes you would make and then compare them with the corrected version.
