General Knowledge

General Knowledge isn't part of Governor's Cup, but rather an additional competitive opportunity for Kentucky students. It consists of questions equally balanced among the five Governor’s Cup subject areas of Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Arts/Humanities. The exam is designed to reward students with a broad knowledge base.

The online exam will be offered to all three grade levels: Elementary (30 questions, 5 tiebreakers), Middle Grades (50 questions, 10 tiebreakers) and High School (50 questions, 10 tiebreakers).

Take advantage of this chance to reward well-rounded students! Registrations are non-refundable.
