    I suppose you all have a point when you say it's very broad, but most people know enough to answer a fair few questions when watching game shows, why is this any different?

    While I see the appeal and idea behind it, it would be so subjective and what type of questions would come up? It would be difficult delivering the course content as god knows what would arise in the exam.

    In theory I'd love it personally, no essay questions - just answers that require a few words or a sentence would be nice. But far too broad (as general knowledge is) for anyone to actually be encouraged to take it
