We recieved a letter yesterday from our fav. indie, that the test has changed from multiple choice to standard. Test is this Friday and we only practised multi-firmats. Stressed all over now. Can anyone tell me the main differences for VR pls ? It's GL assesment.

Thanks :?

I am surprised they were using MC in the first place. All the indies in my area use standard. It simply means you have to write the answer instead of ticking a box. If you know the material it really is not that different but I suggest you do plenty of standard papers in the next few days. DG

Unfortunately for you, the die is cast but given the choice I would always opt for MC because it permits tactical guessing when DC is unsure of an answer or just plain baffled.

We practised on both MC and standard GL tests and achieved very similar scores on both. As long as your DC has had sight of a standard paper so that it is not a shock imo it will make very little difference. Quite a number of the standard GL papers give you answer options that effectively mean it is the same as a MC question, not all though. Also multiple choice can instil a false sense of security too.
