now this is a hard quiz. The countries and capitals seperately you just had to memorize the names but not the associations. As well this one really got me to get the spelling right. Like it is "brasilia" not "brazilia".

Got 137 first try, 164 second, 185 third, and finally all 196 on my 4th try with 2:39 to spare.

The capital of Sri Lanka is not Colombo, it's Sri Jayawardenapura kotte. Burma is no longer called Burma, but Myanmar, so if you're not going to change it, Myanmar should at least be acceptable.

Glad you guys like the quiz. I made a couple corrections. Thanks for pointing them out. Corrected the spelling of SriJayawardenapurakotte and did add Myanmar to Burma. Will also except Saint for St now. Thanks!

193 on third try. This is tough. You have to go through the map in your head. It's really easy to miss a country hear or there, especially in NW Africa and SE Europe. Great quiz and I like the strict spelling rules - teaches me to spell correctly.

I love this quiz. I've seem to gotten good enough to finish with around 8 minutes left on a consistent basis. I think to improve from there I'll need to work on my typing skills more than my knowledge of countries and their capitals. I find myself frequently having to go back and fix typos, so I'm sure I could shave off probably a minute or two with better accuracy of typing.

One suggestion for the quiz. Would it be possible to accept the answers in the form "city, country" in addition to "country city"? I'm so used to typing the city first that I find it awkward to type it the way this quiz requires to get the answers correct. Just a suggestion. I know it would probably be a lot of work making that change.

Great marathon of a quiz! But why are Djibouti, San Marino and Vatican City fine on their own but we need Monaco, Monaco in full? Also, could you accept PNG for Papua New Guinea? That's how everyone refers to it.

Fix: 1. Sri Lanka, Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte not Jayawardenapura...

2. Cyprus is in Europe not in Asia

* Other than that, nice quiz, good job.

Edit: Also, Macedonia is now called North Macedonia. and Swaziland and is Eswatini

Level 28
Aug 16, 2019
Thanks so much for making this quiz! Some things that confused me: sri jayawardenepura kotte should be accepted, as well as eswatini. Also, how do I enter Democratic Republic of the Congo? I tried several different iterations but never succeeded. I finally was able to get Republic of the Congo when I put in "Congo Republic" which was confusing.

Level 76
Apr 6, 2020
You might want to change Astana to Nur-Sultan and Macedonia to North Macedonia according to JetPunk standards (while accepting the former as type-ins). Personally I refer to these by their 'former' official names, but still.
+1
Level 76
Apr 6, 2020
In JetPunk the capital of Sri Lanka is considered to be Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte (not Colombo), and Eswatini should be accepted for Swaziland.

Apr 29, 2020
Accepting more type-ins would be nice. This test is much more stricter than the official jetpunks tests on countries and capitals.
+3
Level 33
Apr 30, 2020
I created this stricter quiz because i wanted the challenge of learning the spelling as well as the Countries & Capitals and thought others might too. I could eventually get through it within the time allotted but had to practice quite a bit first. :)

Level 67
Jul 25, 2022
I really like it that you only accept the correct spellings, it has improved my knowledge so much.
+1
Level 70
Jul 25, 2022
Asking strict spelling is fine but absolutely requires a note to that effect. You can't just decide to go against site-wide convention and not tell anyone unless they happen to ask in the comments. That's rude.

Probably more to the point, though, not all type-ins are about spelling. I imagine almost no one can spell Guinea, but not Papua New Guinea, for example, but the later is nice to abbreviate to PNG for the sake of not needing to type as much.

Then, as many have already said, you really should accept Capital, Country in addition to Country, Capital. That is not only not about spelling, it's also just a more correct way of saying the name.

Plus, there's a level of guessing as to what you arbitrarily decided counts as "stricter". One could waste quite a lot of time (very in-demand in this particular quiz) trying to figure out why an answer was wrong only to discover they didn't type it the way you decided was correct.

+1
Level 48
Jul 18, 2020
Yes, I believe more type-ins would be nice. It would help if you were able to type capital before country, not just country before capital. It would be easier for many people.

I agree with capital first, then country.

It's Eswatini, Mbabane. Not Swaziland, Mbabane and Eswatini. Please fix.
+1
Level 65
Mar 18, 2021
But keep “Swaziland, Mbabane” as a type in
+1
Level 66
Jun 28, 2021
It seems you have added Eswatini as a capital rather than as a country. Eswatini, Mbabane should be accepted.
+2
Level 85
Aug 28, 2021
If you insist on 'Bandar Seri Begawan' and 'Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte' then why do you allow other shortened versions? Bosnia, St Kitts, St Vincent, Trinidad, Antigua, CAR, etc. If you want your quiz to be full names add 5 mins and only allow complete spellings. Either that or allow type-ins because at the moment it seems completely arbitrary. That being said I do really like this quiz and have taken it dozens of times for fun.

Jun 1, 2022
Huh, this was intense, but I got there with half a minute to spare. Admittedly, I had to cheat and google the correct spelling of Naypyidaw, and I kept trying to write South Tarawa (I'm honestly still not entirely sure whether you need the South part even after googling it). But this is definitely a good quiz to come back to after I've maxed out the featured world capitals quiz - there I kept noticing that I accidentally remembered the order of the capitals instead of which country they belonged to after so many tries - here that's not gonna be a problem.
+2
Level 33
Jun 9, 2022
Calliope, that's the reason I created this quiz. I had taken the others many times and loved them but found I too was learning the order instead of what Country the capital belonged to.

10 years on this site and only level 28? You've got to do better than that.

Good quiz by the way. The quizmaster accepts far too many alternative/wrong spellings.

Level 51
Jul 12, 2022
This quiz is great as it really ensures that you know which capital belongs to which country! As others have said, I could list the capitals, and with some quizzes accepting inaccurate spellings also got lazy there, but this makes you do it properly, Love it!

Level 74
Jul 25, 2022
Could be a little bit more flexible as to name of country eg I tried DRC, Democratic Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo etc but couldn't get it accepted. The same for Republic of Congo. Having abbreviations in brackets after the main name is a bit of a cheat!).
