Hello,

Some mock exams (Whizlabs in particular) score partial credit if a question asks for two correct answers, and you select one of the two correct answers. However, if you choose one correct and one incorrect answer, you get no credit.

For example: Assume there are 3 possible answers (A, B, C), and A and B are correct. If you choose one and only answer, and it happens to be A or B, you will receive 0.5 points. If you choose A and C, or B and C, you will get 0 points.

Is this how the actual exam is scored? Also, how are fill in the blank questions scored on the actual exam?

Thanks!
