    I've not posted in a while - I see we have a new thread.

    I'm going to catch up with all the episodes now:

    York Vs Peterhouse

    18 correct and I beat them on, if memory serves:

    Regular Graph
    Barley
    Busan

    St Cat's Vs St John's

    Very enjoyable match - very close.

    18 correct again and I recall beating them on:

    Faun
    White Dwarf

    And possibly nothing else.

    I say it a lot but if I knew the first thing about any STEM subject, classical music, opera or art I'd be much better at this

    Imperial Vs Nuffield

    Only 14 correct this time unfortunately but I did get all three maths questions correct somehow (Hilbert's problems, Godel's incompleteness theorems and the Riemann hypothesis) and beat them on a few things that I remember such as paradigm and the USA's involvement in the Barbary Wars.

    I had somewhere in the region of 13 - 15 which is pretty average for me. I should have done much better as I facepalmed when I heard quite a few of the answers :dontknow:

    It was very enjoyable.

    Just so you know, there is another thread for UC that most people post on that has been around for a long time.
