comment Should I be put off a junior role that uses an online development test?
Also, having slept on it, I've realised that nowhere in the whole test was there any focus on OO; it was entirely lambdas and filters. Ah well. I suspect @Carson is right and I'll soon find out how I did.

comment Should I be put off a junior role that uses an online development test?
@moz that's what made me think. Had it been a test of what I can evaluate on google and the python interpreter (in this case), well, I'd probably have passed it 100%, because I could have filled in the gaps. Those things I use regularly I don't need to look up (Django, for example, the C standard lib, a few other APIs, a fair bit of Java) but I'm kinda stuffed if I'm expected to implicitly know the difference between partition and rpartition. I know what partition does but I don't think I've ever had cause to use rpartition.

That's a good set of points. Combined with @Robert Harvey's answer, I guess I'll take away that idea, have a practise and patch up the weak areas and see what happens in terms of the result/when I apply for another role that does this.

I guess that's fair enough. This isn't my strongest language and I'm well aware I'm not as up to speed on it as I am with other languages. I guess I'll take it as a learning exercise, research the areas that seemed awkward and go from there.
