wa 'alaykumus-salāmu wa rahmatullaahi wabarakaatuh
that was a mistake we made when making this week's ḥadīth quiz - it is a feature that can not be changed once the test is released. i'm very sorry about that. but good news - on monday afternoon your results will be emailed to you in shaa' Allaah. In the future, all quizzes will have the option to view the score right after the test in shaa' Allaah, like the other three this week.
May Allaah reward you for your patience!
