My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneAs I write, thousands of students across the country will be preparing to sit their exams. All of us at My Weekly wish them the best of luck. It also got us thinking – I wonder how we would get on if we were sitting exams this week? We decided to find out, and we’re letting you have a go too! Turn to page 40 to take our fun exam. Do you think you will pass the test? There’s more than a few brainteasers in there. Fortunes were mixed among the My Weekly team, and from me personally, let’s just say more revision may be required!

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly is a fantastic, warm-hearted brand with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on fiction and the advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that weekly reminder!
