    Just to add: the Challenge website is free but it does require an email address so that we can email participants with their results and other support (no spam!).

    We also ask for your name so that users can print personalised certificates as evidence of getting the Essentials of Numeracy or show their numeracy level.

    Since I'm about as worried about registering for the test as I am about registering to post on MSE, and my level of worry is "not at all", I registered.

    I scored 98. One I got wrong through not using a calculator, just approximating in my head (and not working it out accurately, not realising that "none of the above" as an option meant I really needed to work it out to at least one decimal place), and another because I conflated the two scales on the graph so did the wrong sums.

    edit - which will teach me not to blat through it really fast as my lunch hour had run out

    I haven't completed it but saved what I've done - I wish you could see how many more questions to have to do as I didn't realise it would take so long. Probably would have been better if I'd used a calculator on some of them - wouldn't have taken so long.
