Hi Mark, I didn't say that such was the case. But just in case...its always better to play it a bit safe. It gets on your psychological side though
No need to do that just in case.
Actually, the survey is used to later to determine if a question should be removed from all the tests because it is either too tough or too hard.
So let's say you fill out the questionaire as an expert, and all the "experts, others that filled out the survey as experts, get a particular question wrong, and everyone else gets that question wrong that question will be deleeted from the question database. But those same experts get a question right and Middle to beginners all get it wrong and that question is marked as an expert question, then it is ranked correctly and stays.
If that same question is marked as an easy question and only experts get it right, then it can be changed to be an expert question.
The same happens the other way around, if you said you are a beginner and everyone else did the same, and those expert questions were answered correctly, then it stays, and lots of peoplpe will get that question because it is marked as easy now.
So no matter what you will get an weight number of level of questions, no matter what you answer in your survey, but the bad thing that could happen is when you say you are a beginner and your not, more expert questions will be asked more often to all candidates.
Hope that helps.
The survey only affects the ranking a question gets, and not the questions you will get.
