Wow, that sounds complicated!
I remember once when I was a kid... it was my first timed standardized "scantron" test, in 6th? grade where you bubble in your answer and only have a certain amount of time to take the test. I wasn't used to the format as it was the first time I'd taken a test that way... back in the day, they didn't train you how to take a test, before taking it, the way they do now.
The instructions for the test were to not answer a question if you didn't know the answer, to come back to it later if you had time, if not leave it blank. The other instruction was not to make random marks on your scantron slip.
Well about 3/4 thru the test I remembered the answer to a question I had skipped.
Went back to fill it in, and couldn't find the skipped question, bc I hadn't left it blank... and I didn't know what question I'd skipped. So all my answers were one off... only I couldn't remember where I'd gone wrong. I panicked and erased all my answers, then realized I didn't have enough time to finish the test so just bubbled things in so that at least there were some answers.
Turns out it was an intelligence test for placement in middle school.
When I mess up, I do it big. ha
Needless to say my parents were called in when they got the results and a big to do was made over my subnormal "mentally handicapped" results...threats to put me in special classes, leave me back a few grades etc. When my explanation came out, I wound up having to retake it in the Principal's office.
Big trauma for a little girl.
But an important life lesson from which my students benefited
