    Well your first 3 posts on this thread tonight have been typed at an average of 21wpm. That doesn't include your reading, thinking of response and clicking though posts and corrections etc so could easily be 30+ or more. Not fast but likely sufficient for many junior office jobs or admin jobs that don't require frequent typing.
    i type it in fairly quickly but that results in many mistakes and it takes me an age to put them right. i have watched people type who do have good keyboard skills and i am knowhere near as good as them.

    I always got the impression they were a lot younger?

    I am in my 40's and my mum is 79 and she can text.
    i didnt say i cant text. i said i dont text quickly.

    Well as you can type 21wpm including your reading, comprehending, responding and correcting that would likely suit many admin jobs.

    todays module on the course was very easy. got 94% in the mock and then felt embarassed when i only got 77% in the actual exam. still it was enough to pass and that is all that matters. one more module to do next week.

    Are you being deliberately provocative with the sentence I have highlighted ?

    Do you realise that that sentence is like a red rag to a bull to the likes of captainsensible and his ilk ?

    lol, perhaps it is. theres nothing wrong with saying that. to take issue with me would mean they need to take issue with the course tutor who said exactly the same thing to me.

    I was asking cause if you were 60 you may have little or no pc skills or if you were 20 you may have only ever used a touch screen etc
