    Apologies if this has already been explained but…
    We will never achieve 10/10 in the quizzes as they are now only 7/7. Why is that? I can’t help but feel a little short changed.

      Hi Laura,
      I don’t understand. I’m looking at the scores now and they all say out of 7 (/7) for this one and the quiz software does not have a maximum or minimum for the number of questions, so it should have given you a score out of 7. Is it because I wrote “Can you get 10/10?”? I didn’t mean that literally, I meant 100%! Sorry, I’ll edit that now if that helps, but I need to know what you mean? I’m going through the quiz software and can’t find anything wrong with the settings, I’m stumped!

    Sorry Claire, I was referring to the “Can you get 10/10?”? part.
    I meant why the quiz was now only 7 questions and not the 10 it used to be?

      Hi Laura,
      Ah, ok. There’s never been a set number of questions, they’ve ranged from anything from 7-13 in the past. They’re just meant to be a few minutes of fun.
      I hope you enjoy doing them.
      Best Wishes,
