Now that you have completed the Level Assessment Form, add up your point score for each question, find the relevant level below, return to the previous Levels page and take the mandatory self-test for that level.
Ladybird- Point score: 0-5
Grasshopper – Point score: 6-10
Bunny – Point Score: 11-15
Kangaroo – Point Score: 16-20
Gazelle – Point Score: 21-27
Please note – this assessment is only intended as a guide that points you in a general direction, e.g. a point score of 11 will only place you accurately in Bunny level if you can pass the Bunny self-test – if you can’t pass the Bunny self-test -even with a point score of 11 - you should then self-test for the Grasshopper level.
