Keep in mind they track how many attempts her question you take so be careful and get more right the first time and you have a better chance.

Are you applying for it as well? And how did you discover this?

I didn't go on it since I only started using it over the summer but I know someone who went on it and I believe that's what they told me.

Fair not bad, anyone else at your school going for it? At my school we have around 6 people trying to get on it.

I’m the only one really - how many questions (and what level roughly) have you done?

Do you find you always get the correct answer straight away for the harder questions? Sometimes it takes me a 2 or 3 attempts to get it correct if it’s particularly tricky.

Ofcourse not, even the best can’t get it instantly, a few attempts is fine, especially if you are going for the level 5s or 6s, do you also have a daily streak?

It’s going fine, haven’t been very active for the past week as I have had an operation a few days ago so I have been focused mostly on that. Hopefully soon I will be back and will be aiming for some higher level questions.
