Hard questions are important!

  • Hard questions are worth more when you get them right, and don't damage your score as much as easier questions when you get them wrong — they are where you want to be.
  • So the hard questions are where you want to be — you get more when you get them right, and are penalized less when you get them wrong. But how can you get into them?
