I just finished the certificate test
I got a 4.21/5 (which I'm assuming is good). Does this test you for information from the entire course or just what you've completed? There were some things on the test that didn't seem familiar, and while it's quite possible that I just forgot some things that I learned earlier, it seemed like they were things that I never learned. Also, is there a way to see what I got wrong? A couple of my answers were reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally a stretch, and it would be interesting to see if I actually got them right or not.
Hi Erikman, the same thing happened to me! Although I only got something like 2.5 (even though I'm really quite good at my Spanish) a lot of the sentences contained words that I didn't know at all. I believe that one day you will be able to go back and look at your mistakes, because the certificate test is still in beta. For now... I'd just stay away from them :P
I think that the certificate test has every word duolingo offers in any language
I have also finished two of the exams available, I mean Spanish and English, and I think that these tests contain sentences from the whole tree, I mean one or more sentences from each block so that it could test if you have general knowledge of the language, I hope I'm clear, aren't I?:) BTW you took a German test, right?
Yes you are clear (I'm assuming that since you took the English test, English isn't your first language. If I'm right, then your English is very good:)). It seemed to have asked for information from the entire tree, even from the branches I haven't climbed up to yet :). And yes, I took the German test.
I accidentally bought a test in German just after I had learned a little bit and it definitely asked me for things I hadn't covered yet.
Not really. It only says 10-15 minutes. I timed my watch when I took the French test three days ago, and it took exactly 34 minutes for the test to finish. I didn't count the total number of questions, but I'm guessing there were some 45-55 of them.
Okay. I finished my Spanish test in around 10 minutes so the tests must be different depending on the language. The French test is supposed to be harder from what I've heard..
