That Microbe Missions test was a new level of agony.
240 questions in less than 60 minutes... *shudders*

Actually no. The primary reason was that the first time block ended up with about 15 minutes less time to complete everything due to getting started late.

Agreed. Love how the event supervisor was just like "oh yeah the test might be too long".

240 questions of what type? Multiple-choice or so isn't too bad.

It was a mix of multiple choice, true/false, and free response. imo the stations format is what made it hard, especially on some of the tougher and longer stations.

All of this while I was doing the entire event pretty much alone. *shuddering intensifies*

We didn't get all of our CB sheets back unfortunately, and those that wrote their analysis on the second page didn't get it scored either.
