    Hello everyone! Welcome to the third installment of the weekly news quiz.

    Now, due to the feedback I received last week, I have made the stories a bit harder and included some more obscure ones, so apologies if it is too hard now (awkward if everyone now gets 10/10) But it is a learning process for myself and TSR, so eventually we should get it about right :)

    Take the quiz right here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/cont...quiz-29th-July

    Thank you and I would appreciate the feedback! :D

    You could at least have got the questions right, Lloyds didn't make 101% profit, their profit increased 101%, VERY different things

    5/10 not too shabby considering I haven't even looked at the news and haven't had any decent wifi for a week...
