The Word Speed Challenge

Work out the total score of the word below as quickly as you can. Click 'Show answer' to see if you got it right.

Remember that you must add up each letter from its corresponding position in the alphabet, so A is 1 and Z 26, and so IF is 9 + 6 = 15.

Brain skills tested:
- your ability to do math in your head
- your understanding of the alphabet
- ability to count through and manipulate a sequence in your head
- your mental capacity to spot patterns and come up with methods to improve your performance in the puzzle (e.g. memorising the position of a few marker letters distributed in the A-Z sequence)

If you find it slow and hard work at first, don't worry - you will get better with practice.
