What if there are tied winners in a quiz?

If i have around 150 participants participating in a quiz. Would there ever be a scenario where there would be a tie in an individual quiz question? (ie. right answer and same speed to answer) and would there be a way to avoid that?

Hi @khaled,

Yes, it is possible that two participants will have the same number of correct answers and a similar speed of answer. However, the system measures answer speed down to the milliseconds and it is quite unlikely that your participants will have the same exact time, unless you are very very lucky I suppose :)

Because of this, when participants have the same number of correct answers, the leaderboard will always show the faster person above the slower person, even if the difference is just milliseconds. 

Please note, the leaderboard shows minutes and seconds. If you would like to see milliseconds, you can find them when you export the results.

Let me know if you have any further questions!
