How Did You Score in the New Age Quiz?

score 0 - 12

Don't be disappointed by your low score. Why not subscribe to Your Future and improve your grasp of these subjects? ( Actually, you will find it nigh well impossible to do subscribe, seeing as the magazine has long been defunct! You could always read a few Hubpages, however!)

score 13 - 20

Not bad at all, but there's room for improvement!

score 14 - 27

Good! Why not brush up on the finer points by reading Your Future regularly? (See note above!)

score 28 and above

Top marks! Congratulations! How about putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard, as it is now...) and sharing your knowledge with other readers?
