    If you put eg 'appropriate' instead of 'very appropriate' do you get marks, or does it have to be exact?
    I did a practise test and got 50% right, but most of the ones I got wrong were like the example above.

    'Appropriate' instead of 'very appropriate' or vice versa (or 'inappropriate' instead of 'very inappropriate' etc.) will give you half marks I believe.

    Hey :-) So nobody knows exactly how they mark the SJT section but is clear is that there is weighted marking depending on how close you are to the 'correct' answer.

    A mechanism that some propose goes like this: say the correct answer which is worth 4 marks is v appropriate, you get 3 marks for appropriate, 2 for inappropriate and 1 for v inappropriate. If the correct answer worth 4 marks is inappropriate, you would get 3 marks for v inappropriate or appropriate and 2 for v appropriate etc.

    Hope that makes sense!
