Hello!
I wonder, if there's question on the exam with multiple select options, how it will be evaluated?
For example if you choose 2 correct answers instead of 3 - the whole question will be failed, or you will get 0,5% instead of 1,5% (or something like that).
Does anybody know?

Vitaliy,
There is no partial credit on the exam. If you choose two correct and one incorrect answer on a "choose 3 correct answers" questions, you will get 0 points for that question.

If you only choose two answers on a "choose 3 correct answers" questions, the exam will note that question is incomplete. So at least it is hard to forget to answer part of a question.
