Reading a prediction of an assessment exam

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

Q. There are assessment exams for the actual test which I am taking soon insha Allah available for purchase. Online there are posts by other users of this test and their experience of the assessment exam as compared to their actual test result. For example a person says they took the assessment test and scored a 230, whereas their actual exam result was a 224, and they said that assessment exam was quite predictive of their actual exam. I want to know whether reading the correlation or prediction of such assessment tests are akin to visiting a soothsayer or fortuneteller.

However the main theme is the same with my question. Is reading such posts by people’s experiences concerning the correlation or prediction of such assessment tests to actual exam scores akin to visiting a soothsayer or fortuneteller.


A. The answers to your questions are:-

1) No, it will not be akin to visiting a soothsayer or fortune teller.

2) Reading such posts is not akin to visiting a soothsayer or fortuneteller.

And Allah knows best.
