Nine out of 10 university students failed to pass a basic sex education test designed for teenagers.

This is according to a poll of 6,000 readers of student newspaper The Tab.

As part of the research, those polled were asked 12 questions surrounding sex and reproduction which were based on questions from the Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum from the National Children's Bureau.

Questions included “Can you catch an STI if you have oral sex?" and “What type of contraception is put inside of the uterus?”.

On average, respondents only managed to answer half of the questions correctly – and just 10% scored full marks.

Worryingly, half couldn’t label the vagina correctly and 88% thought female orgasmed less during sex than they actually do.

For those wanting to take the test for themselves, see the 12 questions below:
