College Scarf Memory Test

When I first started working with The University of Oxford Shop I set myself the task of learning all of the then 46 college and private hall crests, which I am pleased to say I managed, making life rather easier when dealing with college products. My current challenge is to also learn all of the college scarf designs, which is made slightly more complicated by the fact that some are very similar (e.g. same colours but a different number of stripes) and the colours in them don’t necessarily bear any resemblance to the colours in the crests! Having just photographed 22 of them I managed to get 20 correctly named form memory, so not too bad so far… only another 24 to memorise!
