What is a Multi-Choice Test?
A multiple choice exam is a list of questions from which students are asked to pick out the correct answer. The set of options will usually include 3 or 4 wrong answers. Sometimes you will be asked to choose "true or false".
Levels 1 and 2 exams consist entirely of these sorts of questions. This may seem easier ( being given the answer) but it does mean there is a much broader coverage of the subject.
Here are our 10 tips to help you succeed
