Yes, it's a bloody stiff exam for something that is supposed to be a hobby.

Sometimes it doesn't help itself, because the questions are sometimes badly written or ambiguous, or the number of correct answers given is zero or two.

Almost every season, they used to end up 'dropping' one question from the score.

I know this is off topic but talking about obtuse irrelevant questions, this appeared in the exam paper for the Private Pilots Licence, not long ago.
