If candidates complete My Potentia more than once, will their results improve?

If My Potentia is administered again within a short time span there is a chance that there will be some practice effect. Therefore we recommend results remain valid for about 12 months and retesting within that time only occur if special circumstances exist. (The person was very ill when tested the first time)

As this is a test of potential, not achievement, most peoples’ results remain very consistent over time.
