It’s the moment of truth. How did you do?

60-100 points:

You’re not posh, in fact, you’re just an average Joe.

You hold no pretensions and probably eat your dinner in the living room, use the same towel as your guests and buy second hand furniture without the purpose of being trendy.

Go you, you’re the salt of the earth, you.

100-140 points:

You’re borderline posh. Your mother sometimes embarrassingly refers to something you’ve done as ‘swanky’, but you’re not so posh that other people would notice.

You like a packet of gourmet crisps every now and again and you might play rugby or hockey but head to the local after.

Everyone loves you because we can leave our shoes on in your house, cheers.

140-180 points:

You’re really posh. Like, really. Opulence is your middle name. You’ve probably been to a regatta and actually know what that means.

You’re mostly likely reading this on an iPad after a hard day at ‘the stables’ and traipsing over your gravelled driveway.

You probably go to those nightclubs with bottle service and wear designer clothes that don’t display any logos.

You ARE the Joneses.
