86/100. I was not mentally prepared for that amount of maths today.

I might relearn the ones I got wrong :eyes:


I got 99/100 :slight_smile:

One wrong, and I knew I got it wrong as soon as I pressed the button :frowning:

(To be fair, I do have an A-Level in maths)


I forgot things as soon as I got the GCSE :man_shrugging:

I rushed it in around 10 minutes and got 96/100. The four I got wrong were pretty obvious with hindsight. Not bad, I guess.


So if my maths is right a question every 6 seconds I could barely read some of the questions in 6 seconds never mind work them out

Wow, were there actually 100 questions? It didn’t feel like that many!


No idea I was in bed and couldn’t be bothered. Was going on the scores above


I don’t think there were 100 questions - I think the score is just a percentage of correct answers.
