Help and advice on how the test works.
There are two stages. Stage 1, you get to see 12 images, words, numbers or statements. You need to memorise these (without writing them down !). Stage 2, you get a multiple choice selection to test how much you remembered. At the end, you get a percentage to rate how well you did and a comparison to see how you compare. It seems easy, but it's not !
Yes. The quicker you move through the 12 items you need to memorise and the quicker you take the stage 2 multiple choice, the higher your score. Note that we time each individual item not the entire lot. Which means if you want to spend a very long time on one item, it won't have a huge effect on your overall score as each item/question is reviewed separately.
Generally, anything over 70% on the memory test is considered a good score. The average varies but it does run between 50-60%. Clearly, it is possible to get 100% if you work very quickly and get everything correct.
You only need to memorise 12 items but there are more than that in the system. If you take the test again, you might get a few of the same items again but you should get a different selection which allows you to take the test a few times.
Yes. At the end of the test alongside your memory score, you will also get a list of the items you didn't get correct.
