POINTS & SCORING:
Each 10-Minute Test carries a total score of 10. Each correct answer is awarded 1 mark. No half-marks are allowed.
Please note that unless otherwise specified:
- Unanswered questions are awarded a score of 0, but do not result in points being deducted
- Incorrect questions are awarded a score of 0, but do not result in points being deducted
CHANGING OR ADDING ANSWERS / UPDATING YOUR REPORT:
Once you have generated your report, if you wish to make any alterations (e.g. adding an answer for a question that you did not - or forgot to - attempt), you may do so. Once you have finished making your alterations, click or tap on the report button to update your current report. Please note, however, that if you are attempting to recreate exam conditions, we strongly advise against using this feature.
SCROLL-FREE PAGE NAVIGATION:
Once the report has been generated, the question numbers in the report will be displayed in blue, like the ones below:
|You answered the following 2 questions incorrectly:|
|Question 1: I haven't scene that film. ✘|
|Question 3: The correct plural of 'box' is boxis. ✘|
This means that the question numbers in the Test Report are now linked to the question numbers in the actual test (which will also now be displayed in blue), like the ones below:
|I haven't __________________ that film.|
|Show which one word is the correct plural of the word in bold.|
Using the clickable blue question numbers, you can navigate seamlessly between the report results and your answers. Simply click or tap on the blue question number(s) to move back and forth between the report and your answers instantaneously WITHOUT having to SCROLL.
