Application Quiz 2019

QUIZ 2019

This quiz is mandatory but not eliminatory.

Most of the questions should be easy to answer if you have the required background for the EMerald program. The questionnaire should take you no more than 2h30 (we are timing your quiz).

There are 30 questions in the field of mathematics, geology, chemistry and physics. You can skip some questions and come back to them afterwards but all the questions need to be answered in the same session. Once you start the questionnaire you need to finish it. You will not be allowed to log in a second time.

It can be useful to have something to write and a pocket calculator with you (or some calculator installed on your computer).  

Correct answers will not be shown at the end of the quiz to prevent cheating. However your temporary results will appear ( temporary because all the answers are reviewed manually to avoid case sensitive issues).

For your information:

Multiple choice questions are worth 1 point.

Short answer questions are worth 3 points.

Matching and long answer questions are worth 3 points.


Mathematical expressions:

Mathematical expressions are written with regular characters. Please use the same in your answers.
