Getting kicked out of "testing out of this skill"

In Cond. Per. I tried to use the "keyhole". The system immediately shunted me back to the tree. When I looked, I could do the lessons without any technical problem. The thing is: I am too lazy to go through all these lessons. I prefer to test out immediately. Why can't I? Is the system cross with me, because I had done that for about 8 skills yesterday?

After slugging it out with the normal exercises i took on the next skill and there the keyhole worked normally.

Hi- you should be able to test out of a skill. What language are you seeing this with?

It keeps kicking me out on the final question in the test. This is really frustrating to have gone all the way through the test just to be kicked out one question before you pass. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to when it will let you through and when it won't. I had thought that if your current browser window lost focus, while you checked your email or something, it might refuse to mark the test (in case it thinks you are cheating) and so I now make sure I never click on anything else when I'm doing a test. This doesn't work either though. Sometimes it lets you through. Sometimes it doesn't even when you have 3 lives left! GRRR.... Frustration!

Hey - can you tell me what browser/OS you're using? Also, by "kicks you out" do you mean that you land back on the home page with your skill tree or does your browser close down completely? Also, it might be a good idea to start a new thread as it will get more attention than an old one. Thanks!

Hi, thanks for such a quick response. I am using Chrome. No, it doesn't close my browser, just closes my test session and sends me back to the home page or topic page.
