I sympathise. I do so hate it when I overthink the question and then change it from the correct answer to a wrong answer.

I agree, I've done that a few times, then once I've pressed the 'submit' button I realise what an idiot I've been.

They pick from a pool of questions considered to be of similar difficulty, in some categories there are up to 6 levels, others may have only 3, some of the pools are quite small, so you get the questions repeating more regularly than others. If you are looking to change categories or levels it will tell you nhow many questions it is picking from. BE quiiz is set up for random questions, so that two people will not get the same questions, so logging on with two different names won't work,

Have a go at it, SOS. Frustrating at times but if anything else, you learn things.

For anyone wondering about the scoring system, everyone starts with 1000 points, you lose one point for every second taken, and 100 for every incorrect answer. It is possible for someone with only 9 correct to beat someone who gets all 10 right depending on time taken. If there are two people with the same score, then the one who played first gets the highest position.

Come and cut your teeth on the Barbie quiz first - there's only about 5 people play so you can show your ignorance to a much smaller audience

Oh! I'll maybe give that a go too. After all I could make The List no matter how long I took.

Note: One must log out and re log in to play each quiz.
