Yeah, Right


That's nice to know. Apparently I have 'upper intermediate' (or, begrudgingly, above) English language ability.

And I wasn't certain about some of them, because some of them had more than one acceptable answer. 


Mind you is the obvious choice there, but, colloquially speaking, still would also be passable. However, when I tried that, I got knocked down to 96%. Although I chose mind you during the first round, I said I was uncertain and lost the points.

So, I was marked down for being a conscientious student. I'm not entirely sure that's fair.
