What is a topical quiz??

A topical quiz is a series of questions based around a single topic which will test all of your knowledge upon it. It will cover stats, facts, long-form and short-form answers to make you a master of your chosen subject. Providing both questions and answers, a topical quiz will prepare you for whatever might be thrown at you in an exam.

Why should you use the Topical Quiz template?

Acquiring knowledge in the run up to an exam is all well and good but being able to use it at the right points is what is important. Putting your mind to the test in a pre-exam topical quiz doesn’t come with the actual stress of exam day, but it will help reduce it when the day does finally come.

The Topical Quiz template is fully customisable, allowing you and your fellow students to alter the questions it poses depending on the subject you are revising. It’s also interactive! With Ayoa’s collapsible branches, you can hide answers before revealing them once you have considered your response to questions. Due to answers being shown by the Topical Quiz template in a way which visually ties them to their questions, regardless of whether you got them right or wrong, your association between question and the right answer will be enforced going forward!
