I'm scheduling my SCJA exam shortly and have a question related to exam scoring - for questions with multiple responses, how does Sun tabulate scoring? For example, if 3 responses are required, must all 3 be correct for credit? If 2 of the 3 are correct, is partial credit given?
It's all or nothing on the exam, so you've got to get those questions right, and that means if there are three correct answers, you need to get all three correct, and you get one point for getting it right, and no points if you get any of it wrong.
So, you need to get those answers correct.
They WILL tell you how many options are correct, so you will know if you need to choose one, two, or three answers.
Also, the exam is NOT punitive, so if you get an question wrong, you don't get a mark for it, but you don't get 'deducted' marks for questions you get wrong, so make sure you answer every questions, even if it is an educated guess.
