Default Information about The Ref Quiz

Information about The Ref Quiz

Before you are able take the Ref Test, you must pass the Ref Quiz. There are 30 questions on the Ref Quiz. You must answer 18 out of the 25 short answer questions correctly and 3 out of the 5 battle scenarios to pass the Ref Quiz. You are able to use the full-featured ref calculator for the quiz. Once you pass, the Ref Tester will guide you through the answers you did not get. You must PM your answers to an available Ref Tester. He/she will then send you back the answers that are incorrect. You then respond with your revision of those incorrect answers, and keep doing so until you pass. Nobody except a Ref Tester is able to help you on the Ref Quiz, and you are not able to discuss the Ref Quiz with anyone except a Ref Tester. Any questions about it should be done through PM with one of the Ref Testers. The Ref Testers you can PM your answers to are:
