A rather strange drop from 35% for B to 3% for A. Any ideas why?

You'd think it would at least roughly continue that curve wouldn't you? Very interesting.

I struggled with this one for ages because I kept having mind freezes on certain letters. I found it easily to type out FEDCBA first because it is easy to remember and the continue on backwards from Z. Sounds weird but it helped me do it.

I thought of the same strategy (using the up arrow), but it's not that easy to synchronise it. I only had one second left.

In the instructions, "it's" and you're also missing a preposition.

For some reason, I've taught myself do both say and type the alphabet backwards. This is the first time it's come in handy. Even when I've been pulled over they didn't ask me to do this.

Good strategy, somehow works. Probably because those first (last) six letters always seem to trip me up.

I'm a little surprised so many people are able to do this. I've been able to say the alphabet backwards (more quickly than forwards) since I was in college. In the 20 years since I haven't met a person who could simply speak it backwards.

I learnt the alphabet backwards as a way to distract myself and get rid of hiccoughs. Didn't work brilliantly for the hiccoughs but I can now say the alphabet backwards easily!!
