CBTs evaluation for AST-SC/03/15

Hi :)

I did the CBT tests this morning for the AST-SC competition. It was my first time doing them.

How do they score the tests? Is a correct answer in the verbal reasoning test worth the same as a correct answer in the abstract reasoning test, for example? Do they just add all the questions and our score is determined by the percentage of correct answers, independent from the type of test?

I'm asking this because the fourth test, after the abstract reasoning one, where we have to find the mistakes? Where we had to answer 40 questions in 5 or 6 minutes? I did so badly in that one and it was the test that had the highest number of questions. Eeeek.

Hi. Ah, I see.

My test (e), Prioritising and organising, only had 24 questions though, and not 40 like it says on the notice. So it was even more important I did well on the Accuracy test. I applied for field 2.

It does not say that there are 40 questions; it says "Marking: out of 40" which is not the same thing at all.

There are 24 questions and 40 points i.e. one question does not equal one point.

Yeah well, for someone who never did the tests, the assumption that "Marking: out of 40" means that there are 40 questions isn't preposterous or dumb. Especially when for the other 4 tests "Marking: out of 40" and "Marking out of 20" and "Marking out of 10" means that there really are 40, 20 and 10 questions.
