A couple of notes about how we intend this item to be used:
There are 10 questions, over 1 hour. This is one third of the real exam, but it is long enough to give you a real taste of what you're in for. The opportunity here is for you to practice and review some of the answering techniques and issues from the Initiation Roadblock.
Treat the exam as real. This is a self marked exam. We have done this because it is important you learn to be critical about your own answers. We can guide you by marking, but at the end of the day you need to develop your own insight. Roadblock 1, to be taken after this exam, is our next marked paper, and we hope over that time to see some improvement in technique. Make sure you put your email into the form so that you get your answers to mark.
Seriously, treat the exam as real. Stick to time, give yourself the full hour and use the pen you plan to use in the real thing. This is a good chance to find out how you are tracking towards the timing, knowledge and answering standard you will need to achieve to have a good chance of passing the real examination.
When you have finished, take your paper and mark it using the guide on the answer page. Like all tests in our course, agonising about marks of 3 versus 4 (for example) is less important than being able to think critically about your paper.
We ask that you please to keep the interlude files confidential. We don't think it's fair on our candidates that people who have not been prepared to commit the same resources as you all have are given free access to the course's intellectual property.
