Mauritius's northernmost point is actually farther north than Madagascar and Comoros, because of the South Agalega Islands

Starts With P: Palau, Papua New Guinea

Starts With S: Samoa, Solomon Islands

Starts With T: Tonga Tuvalu

Ends With I: Fiji Kiribati

Ends With U: Nauru Vanuatu

The Major 2: New Zealand and Australia

I use the grouping system: 4 5-letter words: Palau, Nauru, Samoa and Tonga, 2 XXX islands: Marshall Islands and Solomen Islands, and the rest are easy

After the three big ones, I first use ending letters, then name lengths: Tonga and Samoa, Fiji and Kiribati, Palau and Nauru, Vanuatu and Tuvalu (which are almost anagrams of each other), Marshall/Solomon Islands, with Micronesia the third big island group.

I do PNG Australia New Zealand (big 3) then I do Fiji Samoa Tonga (3 off to the side) then Tuvalu Vanuatu Nauru (3 that rhyme) followed by Marshall Islands and Solomon Islands (both names have islands) and lastly Kiribati FSM Palau (3 stretching east west) It might sound complicated but for me it works!

I just remember them in groups of four

The first group is: Fiji, Tonga, Samoa

Second group is: Vanuatu, Tuvalu, Kiribati

Third group is: Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands, Micronesia

Fourth group is: Nauru, Palau

PNG is easy to remember

I use pairs, but oddly different ones to you:

Australia and New Zealand (big)

Nauru and Palau (5 letter, tiny)

Fiji and F.S Micronesia (F)

Solomon Islands and Marshall Islands ('island')

Tonga and Samoa (5 letter)

Vanuatu and Tuvalu (6 letter)

Kiribati

Nice quiz, got 100% on my first try. I also tried Australia, Tuvalu, Malawi and Zambia. Turns out they are the near misses.

Nice quiz, but shouldn't the instructions say "most southerly in latitude" rather than "lowest in latitude"? "Lowest" means closest to zero, ie closest to the equator, like Singapore.

That's basically exactly what it says in the instructions but a little more vague. I bet most people would get how the quiz works by reading the instructions, but thanks for giving me feedback. I always appreciate it!

Australia's northernmost point is actually higher north than all of these countries. Remember it's about the northernmost point not southernmost

This is a great quiz! I still haven't been able to get 20/20, but I've been close a few times.

The opposite quiz capitalizes 'With' in the title but this quiz doesn't. Please make it consistent!

Sorry, but I don't think capitalizing or not capitalizing "with" is that important, I know in most of my quizzes it is not capitalized, but it is not worth editing a featured quiz just to change the capitalization of one word.
