In the exam do they say the no of correct answers? Do we have fill in the blanks sort of questions, too?
Thanks

The exam will tell you how many correct answers exist. Fill in the blank questions might show up, but they'll be few and far between.

I've got also a question about the exam.
You will get the possibility to "mark" questions. What is the purpose of this?
Thanks.

If you wish to skip a question and go back to it later, you can mark it. Same if you answer the question but you may want to reconsider that answer, mark it and go back later.
What I'm not sure on is whether, when you submit marked answers, they are graded or default to being wrong. So it may be better to unmark everything before hitting the submit button.
Someone?

I have seen a post in the results, which says marked answers are not evaluated. So make sure you unmark them before you submit your test!!!

I used "mark" for questions that I wasn't quite sure about -- so I came back to them at the end of exam -- just to make sure the answer I chose is what I really wanted to stay with (sometimes reading other questions gives you a spark of inspiration to a previous questions).
nine times out of ten I ended up keeping the original answer I chose.

Marking answers are for your convenience and have nothing to do with grading.

Bill, take a look at this post.
In particular this:

When I submitted again the system reminded me that I have ten more marked answer that will be judged automaticly by the system as incorrect!


The guy does say "marked answer" not "marked questions" so there could be some confusion here. If he hasn't answered the questions I understand this, but if he has answered them but marked them for reconsideration, then that's definitely a problem.
