2. Word based test

In this mode, you choose the amount of words you want to type in a given test. Accordingly time will be noted and results would be shown

3. Strict time based test

Similar to time based test but the test ends when you make a mistake

Similar to word based test but the test ends when you make a mistake

5. Infinite Practice

The typing practice would go on indefinetly until you specifically want it to end which you can do by typing “exit” anytime during the test
