The tests for placement don't take enough into account.

I have done two years of French at school and wanted to keep going, however I am stuck doing things I already know because the placement test doesn't take into account knowing things such as foods, pronouns, family ect, because I got the conjunction or verb tense wrong.

Does anyone else have a similar issue?

I experienced the same thing except reverse (I know verbs but not vocab) with my placement test. I just let it place me at a lower level and then tested out of the things I already know. The test-out shortcuts are a helpful review and they skip over anywhere from 1 to 9 lessons.
