Welcome to the Organic Social Media Final Exam from The Online Advertising Guide.
The format of the Final Exam is the same as the Organic Social Mock Exam – you will be asked to answer 50 questions about organic social media that only top Social Media Marketers should know. There is one key difference though – there is a ten-minute time limit that starts as soon as you hit “Start Exam”. The timer will appear in the bottom right corner of the screen.
We highly recommend that you prepare for this Exam by first taking the easy, normal and hard organic social quizzes, as well as using the Organic Social Mock Exam to practise as it draws from the same pool of questions.
Please note: The Final Exam is different every time and you can try again as many times as you like. Take our advice and go fast.
Press the “Start Exam” button directly below to begin the timer, then the “Next” button to bring up your first question.
*Please note: if you get in touch for a certificate your email address will not be used for any other purpose whatsoever, nor sold on to anyone else.
