What is in The Test?

The test does not require a lot of extra study as it is a test of skills and knowledge that learners are expected to have already.
It is divided into four sections:
Section 1 (22 multiple-choice questions): General Knowledge and Logical Reasoning. Sections 2, 3 and 4 (38 multiple-choice questions): Scientific Knowledge covering Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.
Scoring scale:
A candidate’s total score is calculated using the following formula:

• 1.5 points for each correct answer.
• -0.4 points for each wrong answer.
• 0 points for each question not answered.

An overall total score will be reported, together with a score on each section.
