Why is my quiz score so low?

The Scribbr language quiz is designed to test the basic language and editing knowledge we expect our incoming editors to possess.

It is meant to be difficult, and only a small percentage of applicants achieve a passing score. You can score positive points for correct answers and penalty points for incorrect answers, which can result in low quiz scores.

The quiz is a recruiting tool designed by our team. The scores are curved for this purpose and indicate only whether you are a good fit for our editor team. The score is not a measure of your overall knowledge.
