Demo Tips 

Watch the video to see how the platform works.

  Some Tips before you start...
  • Work through the initial test on your own - try to get as many wrong as possible!
  • You can then get help going through the explanations and similar practice questions.
  • Wait as long as possible before doing the retest- ignore this for the demo :).
  • Work through the retest, which contains similar questions to your errors on the initial test- again, get as many wrong as possible.
  • You can then see the errors from the retest in the report.
