The test associated with the GPI consists of 10 questions. The maximum score on the test is 10 points and 8 points give a positive result.
Two question formats are used in the test:
Multiple choice questions
With this question type, the candidate must choose the correct answer from a number of alternatives. Each multiple choice question scores 1 or 0 points.
Multiple Answer Questions
With this question type, the candidate must choose one or more correct answers from a number of alternatives. It is not indicated how many answers must be selected. The maximum score for each multiple-answer question is 1 point; each correct answer yields a portion of the maximum score and for each incorrect answer a portion of the maximum score is subtracted. The minimum score is 0 points, so the candidate can never score negatively on this type of question.
