Using lingots for a certificate?

Hey in the store it says I can use 25 lingots to have a test and get a certificate.

Will this certificate be verified? Will it tell me how competent I am or aren't in Spanish? Will it be mailed to me or do I have to print it out. lol,, can I use it for my resume/ cv??

No, it is not verified and you can hardly use it for your CV.

Here is what it looks like:

Basically, the certificate test is a selection of questions from Duolingo. There is nothing different. In a way, it tells you how competent you are in Spanish, but the result also depends on how competent you are at remembering translations accepted by Duolingo.

Here are some of my thoughts after having passed a test: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/940305

thanks!! Your post was very informative, I guess it won't be worth trying out for one. So many drawbacks to it!!
