Welcome back to current affairs week!



Image



We start the quiz tonight (Saturday 30th May) at 7.30pm!




This quiz will be testing your knowledge of news stories from 2020. Join me at 7.30pm for scandals, riots, business deals, bailouts, and more!

The 'headlines' used in this quiz are not exactly real-life headlines, but ones that have been created to make the gaps guessable while still not giving the game away immediately!


Scoring
Everyone will receive 1 point for each correct answer you give. If you're the first to get the correct answer you score an additional bonus (1) point.

I will post the questions at (roughly) 5 minute intervals and quote in everyone who answered the previous question. Image

Discrepancies/Challenges in correct answers and scoring will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

Happy Quizzing!
