I've got to do one of these this weekend!! Any tips? Did a practise I found on line and some parts only around 50%, others much higher ... seem to be less good at inference and argument was terrible!!!
Help me, desperately want this job!! confused

I just did one and I don't agree with some of the 'correct' answers. Some of them appear to insist that a statement is false when, based on the data available, you couldn't actually know. It would be false in some situations and true in others but you've got an overgeneralised statement to work with.

In other cases, it's making assumptions that are not necessarily embedded in the statement. One of the answers is the sort of unquestioned assumption that reviewers would reject your paper for making.

That's what I thought ..... really not very good at all 🤔
