Not bad, huh? I wish I could have taken more test.

Taking these timed tests has been a thrill. Usually, a question is timed 180 seconds to answer (if I recall correctly, only 40 seconds were allotted for math questions). It was pleasing when I beat the clock; on the other hand, it was infuriating when the clock beats me.

Passing score is 2.75. This means you get a certification from BrainBench. When you get a score of 4.0 and up, you are dubbed a master. Aside from this, the test results lets you know how you fare from other test takers. For instance, my score of 3.42 in the Written English is higher than the score of 75% of those who previously took the test.  The results also show your strong and weak areas in a particular test or a subject matter of a skill. Certainly, the results I got gave me some directions in terms of the subject matter I need to improve on.

Thanks and more power to BrainBench. I hope there would be more BrainBench Games in the future.

PS: Kudos to the Philippines for being in the top 10 countries in the BrainBench Games. The Philippines placed 5th and 7th in the Most Certified Citizens and the Most MASTER LEVEL Certified Nation, respectively.  See complete results here.
