If you have already joined and paid membership through the website:
The SQ App Dashboard gives you the following options:
When you log in to the SQ app for the first time ALL members will default to Level 1 tests
The SQ Levels . .
We suggest all players get a Level 1 score higher than 50 before moving to SQ Level 2
Players with a matchplay high break of 75+ may choose to start on Level 2 directly. You will need to go to 'My SQ Account' and select Level 2 if you take this option.
NOTE: You will ONLY get an official SQ when you have 4 tests completed at Level 1 or Level 2
Once you select your Level (1 or 2), return to the main dashboard and select 'SQ Tests'
You can now scroll down to see the four ISQ Test options:
Once you have selected which one of the 4 ISQ tests to complete, click on it to be taken into the ISQ test front page. Here you can see all four ISQ skill tests. These can also be found at the bottom of your SQ Dashboard.
NOTE: You will not be able to repeat exactly the same ISQ test, at the same level, within 7 days of the last attempt (this is to encourage members to go away and practice instead of immediately paying to re-submit).
You can of course choose to do one of the other 3 ISQ tests at the same level, or any of the 4 ISQ tests at the other level (assuming you have done any of those in the last 7 days).
Once you have entered the the ISQ front page, you can see the 4 practice routines listed within the selected ISQ.
Clicking on any of the routines will take you to an instruction page showing:
We suggest you get to know the routines and practice them before taking the ISQ test. Once you are comfortable with the routine set up, you can proceed to take the ISQ test
Select the 'Start Test' button on the ISQ front page to be taken into the ISQ video capture page.
At this point 5 SQ points will be taken from your account to pay for the ISQ test.
Click on the camera icon to enter the video capture mode.
Make sure your device is LANDSCAPE mode for every video capture and that your orientation lock is NOT selected (see this video link if you need more information regarding landscape mode and orientation lock for iOS - click here for Android):
You can choose to leave the test at any time to check other areas of the SQ app or your phone in general, but not while a video is still uploading.
Once all videos are uploaded, you will get a final message asking you to SUBMIT.
The SUBMIT button will not function if any of your scores or videos are missing.
The final message will tell you that your video has been sent for review.
Your score will now be logged and added to your SQ Details and to the SQ Leaderboard
If there is any concern with your video submission we will endeavour to contact you to discuss it or contact us on SQContact@whatisyoursq.com.
After you receive the alert to say your submission will be reviewed, your ISQ test is complete and your videos will be added to your 'My Videos' area on your SQ app menu.
Your videos will show the date stamp and the score you achieved (in the header area above the video).
Your ISQ test score will immediately update your current SQ (at the level you selected).
Your score will now be available for you, and all SQ members, to see on the SQ global Leaderboard.
If, after verification, your test and score are considered invalid for any reason, your score may be altered up/down by SQ administrators. Your SQ will automatically update at the same time.
You can then choose to view your own SQ graph by returning to the SQ dashboard in the app and selecting My SQ Account and then My SQ Progress.
Finally you may choose to see where your score is situated on the SQ Leaderboards by returning to the SQ dashboard in the app and selecting My SQ Account and then SQ Leaderboards.
