    We’ve just published the answers to our Christmas Quiz at the bottom of this page:

    If you’ve not already had a go at the questions, it’s not too late!

    We’d be interested to know how everyone did. The feedback we’ve had suggested it was pretty tough, and a few people I know got scores in the single digits. So, I think anyone who did better than half marks (without looking the answers up!) knows the sky pretty well!

    Grand total of 22.

    Only 20 I’m afraid.  Round 6 (Instruments) let me down….Fun quiz, and beautifully presented, thankyou.  Happy Christmas everyone!

    Only 15 for me, I struggled with Instruments as well. A good set of balanced questions.

    I managed 19, but probably only knew 10. Not so much the 9 correct answers I alighted upon, but the 3 I thought I knew but actually didn’t that stick in the memory.

    As family entertainment…. I’m afraid after 5 questions a group decision was made to abandon the quiz in favour of “Exploding kittens”.

    I enjoyed it when I did it though – so thank you.

    I’m glad we provided family entertainment with the first five questions at least :-).

    This was a first for the BAA, and my co-conspirator (James Dawson) and I weren’t sure how difficult to make the questions. I was keen not to have people getting full marks, so we went for a spread from ‘difficult’ to ‘very difficult’. On balance, I think perhaps we’ll include some slightly easier questions next year!

    Spelling mistake in Q33: it’s Trifid
