Test in french?
What is the right way/ways to say "test" in French? I mean like a test that you do in school. I've heard people say different things like: "Contrôle" , "Épreuve" and "Examen" , but what is the most used ones? I mean just a normal test you do in school, not an final exam. :)
"Contrôle" is more for elementary school, secondary school, and maybe high-school. It's for small tests you would have during the year, not for final exams. It sounds a bit childish too, or at least "teenagerish".
"Examen" is more generic and official, and works for anything, even your driver licence.
"Épreuve" is kinda synonym of "examen", I can't really think of a case where "examen" and "épreuve" aren't interchangeable (in the context of studies at least).
