A third of British adults cannot spell well enough to pass an SAT exam designed for an 11-year-old, a survey has found.

Censuswide asked 1,000 British adults to complete a spelling test for students at the end of their primary school careers on behalf of King Digital Entertainment, the company behind Candy Crush, which is now promoting its new mobile spelling game AlphaBetty Saga.

King Digital Entertainment sent a list of the 10 most commonly-misspelled words to, and we compiled this quiz to test if users would pass an SAT exam. Keep in mind all spellings are UK English - and let us know how you fare in the comments.

For those not in the mood to complete a mini-exam, here are the 10 most commonly misspelled words according to King Digital Entertainment. This list goes from most-to-least misspelled.
