After practise challenge three it said we wouldn’t get feedback until after the first time period was up. Does this mean that, if we were to get it wrong, we wouldn’t know where until after the first time period or that we just wouldn’t be told that we had gone wrong?
It should mean you hear nothing until after the next points boundary, so if you think you could have made a mistake you nee to get on with checking and resubmit when you correct it.
Ok, its just because straight after submitting I had a score show up in my submissions, is this score solely related to the time submitted and not the correctness of the solution?
Apologies. I misunderstood what you were asking. The score gives your accuracy, feedback tells you where the first mistake is. You will see that you have made a mistake (if you have) and can get on with trying to fix it, but won’t get any feedback until after the next points boundary. Is that clearer?
Yes that makes sense now, thanks.
