Those are good points. Does being in the top 10% of those who took the English Language test help me at all?
I don’t know. On the 8th and 9th I had no sales, then on the 10th I had 3 sales. Today no sales again. I took the tests on the 6th, a day I was bored because I had delivered all my orders.
Do buyers even look at the test scores? Or are they just looking at gig title, gig price, gig description?
The one thing I do like about the tests is that they don’t discriminate. It’s not like being nominated for Top Rated Seller only to be rejected the next day or applying to PRO and not getting it.
However, be careful with taking a test and then closing the window because the test was taking too long and you decided not to do it. If you close the window, you will get a FAIL. It won’t show on your profile, but I don’t think you’ll be able to take the test.
The Chicago AP Style test is one example. It was taking too long. I realize they give us 40 minutes, but they had too many questions, each one requiring a lot of reading.
