    If time is almost up for a problem, a clock icon will flash in the black bar at the top of the screen; choose an answer as soon as you can and press enter.

    If time runs out before you answer the problem, the next problem will appear.

    If you need to go back one problem to change your answer, press esc or backspace. You can only go back one problem.

  11. After you answer the last problem, the screen will show you how many problems you answered correctly out of the total number you saw. It will also show you which problems you got wrong and their correct answers. You can use the arrow keys to scroll through the results.
  12. When you have finished, press enter to go back to the Select a Level screen.
