    I was considering doing this with family trees. I absolutely love sitting at home and getting it done for people - i jsut did my mother in laws after like 2 weeks as a chrismtas present to her and all i had to go on was her mums death certificate and that was it - now i am back to her great great great grandparents. Wonder if it would be worth looking into?

    I work for AQA and have for over a year now.

    It is now my full time job after taking redundancy.

    It is not a get rich quick idea - it takes quite a lot of work to earn a decent crust. I work 6, somtimes 7 days a week, whatever hours I fancy and just about bring home enough to pay the mortgage, bills, food etc on my own.

    However, for anyone wanting to work from home, who has good knowledge of the Internet and has a nose for finding out facts, it is a god send. It helped me pay huge chunks off my debt last year as a second job.

    I have just passed the initial test and am waiting for my induction into AQA. I am glad to hear that you are making a decent income from it. Well done! I love research and can spend hours trawling through the internet looking for answers. Also would love to clear a huge chunk off my debt.

    Is the induction hard to do? Do people still fail at this stage?

    Hi

    How do you get into AQA? my day job requires me to perform searches for information, so this would be ideal. Is there a link to an application form that you could post.

    Thanks

    Texperts is another internet research company like AQA.

    I want to move to theory. Everything works in theory.

It's general knowledge on three subjects of your choosing, then a bit of reading and answering questions, then some basic maths and finally some web based research. I tried 3 times last night and failed all three times. I don't think there's any limit on how many times you can do the test.

    That texperts test was fun! I managed 100% on all the sections except the last question which doesn't score you as it's written.

    Rise to the challenge!
    I just tried the texperts test and failed, but when I have more time I will try, try again! If you just got 100% I guess you will do well with texperts and earn loads. Good luck.

    Hi
    HAs anyone managed to get through this test? I don't know if it is having some sort of off night, but the results do not add up on mine.

    I have taken the test several times now, and it is incredibly difficult to pass.
    I had 100% on most elements, and then got absolutely impossible questions on the Research bit, and failed just that one segment, FAIL.
    I really don't know how to pass this, it seems to adapt the next segment to your score so far.

    I'll keep trying though!

    I've passed it, I am waiting for a start date.

    I think the key with the research questions is to take your time x

    I'm struggling with it.

    I get 100% on all the sections apart from research which I always fail at 67% :confused:

    I use the time allowed wisely and double check the answers are right on different websites, so I don't understand what I am doing wrong.
    Here I go again on my own....
  • 24ctu
    I think the research questions might be a bit hit-and-miss. It might take a few attempts at the test. I managed to answer all mine using wikipedia. As for the final, written question, I'm pretty sure it's intended to be unanswerable. I think it's just to see how witty your response would be.

    I got 100% on research most times, apart from the one where I had 100% on everything else!! I am sure that my research was correct as I found all the answers on google.
    I am beginning to wonder as I had some glitches - time came up at -1 right at the start & got the same question 2ce in the same test! I have also got some very odd percentage scores.

    How much does it pay is it worth persevering?

    I've failed it many times already aswell, it's rock hard doing the general knowledge. I think I'll get a friend to sit with me and help me out one day.
