I got 5/10. Not brilliant, but some of the questions were quite hard and someone with a good knowledge of current affairs or history is more likely to do well than someone who is interested in architecture. There were too few questions on actual architectural styles or 'name the arcitect who designed this?' questions.

its quite brit-orientated. I was shocked I got such a high score. I had a few lucky guesses. I know shit about architecture.

Hmm, apart from the question about Tudor or Mock Tudor I would say it was a quiz about buildings, not an "architecture" quiz.

Were were questions regarding cavity walls, Ionic columns, load bearing struts etc??

I changed my mind at last nanosecond wasting two of the lucky guesses :D
