It's because people do the test multiple times improving their score, and in the percentage it counts people's highest score, whilst in the "average score" it considers ALL the scores (hope that was clear😅)

I consider myself to a fairly learned person and have traveled fairly extensively, globally, and I got 144 correct. I absolutely REFUSE to believe that the AVERAGE score was 175 out of 196 countries. 88% of quiz takers got "Eritrea"? Really? Just not possible. Maintain the integrity of the quiz and your personal integrity, people, by not using Google during the quiz to get the answers. The only one really being cheated is you. The guy who posted that he completed the thing in 4 minutes? Total bull****. He can't even type that fast.

Level 73

"The only one really being cheated is you."
You seem to feel pretty cheated, too.

But seriously, Jetpunk is a site for geography nerds. Eritrea is no hurdle for many.
+2
Level 54
Apr 18, 2020
Among the general population, yes, that would be an insane average. But this is Jetpunk. I found this place because I was trying to learn world geography, and the original version of this quiz was how I learned all the countries. I practiced a lot on that quiz to get to where I am now, always getting all 196 even without a list or being able to see the small countries. I doubt I'm special, I think that's just the sort of person this site, and this quiz especially, attracts. Practice a bit and you too will be getting a perfect score like most of the takers of this quiz. If I'm not mistaken, it averages the best scores of each user that took it, not all the attempts, so that raises the score a bit as well.
+1
Level 72

Without Eritrea and Djibouti, the Red Sea looks too big. Eritrea is easy to get. East Timor is where I had issues and that was just because I forgot for four minutes that there were islands on that side of Darwin, Australia.
