MY DD is sitting an indie entrance exam this Friday. I just found out it's standard and not multiple choice (GL assesment) hmm.

What is the main differences i should know about ? Test is VR and NVR only. thank you.

Standard format: you write the answer on the paper.
Multiple choice: often has a separate answer sheet.

Multiple choice requires slightly different exam technique, including checking you are matching the correct answer to the correct question and occasionally working out the answer by process of elimination if you get stuck.

So if DD manages multi format fine, standard should be pretty much the same type of questions ?

Yes, just slightly different answering technique.

VR will certainly be the same question types. I know nothing about NVR, sorry.
