Can you do 'world's hardest test'?

Studying

It's been dubbed the 'world's hardest test'. Oxford University's All Souls College entrance exam is impossible to prepare for because it features abstract questions. And they're tough.

Here's an example of some of the test questions:

1. Is a person's gender socially constructed? Is a person's sex?

2. Can emotions be reasons for decisions?

3. How do apologies work?

4. Does anger have a legitimate role to play in politics?

5. What can we learn about the mind by considering its disorders?

About 80 people sit the exam every September but only two make the cut, who then go on to perform a speaking test. If you pass you then become a Fellow for seven years. British Prime Minister Harold Wilson did not pass the exam.

How did you go answering the questions?
