Mahsa YadegariFeb 21, 2024
Thank you for your useful website, But I have some criticisms. After submitting the answers, for checking the Audio script, the current page will be refreshed, so you will lose your answer shit and questions, therefore it's not possible to compare it white the script.Also if you do not answer some questions, in the reviewing part the correct answer will not appear for them.
Hi Mahsa. After submitting your answers, three buttons will apear on the left side of the screen, the ABC button for review, the Audioscript button and the Retake the test button. If you click on the ABC button or the Audioscript button, the page will never reload, but if you click on the Retake button, this will make the page to refresh to erase your previous answers! If not, try updating your browser or use another browser.
