I have already taken the test 'English Test' which got quickly ended up in 28 minutes, not as what I expected - you can have a look at https://www.upwork.com/ab/tests/exam/16692845 for further details.

 

As it can be noticed - 'the time to complete' information is labeled as "28 minutes (50 minutes allowed)".

 

Why I got this happening?

Hi Kais, 

 

Some of our skills tests use adaptive testing which is a form of computer-based testing that adapts to the examinee's ability level. 

 

What this means is, when taking a test if a user answers a question correctly they may receive a more challenging question, while an incorrect answer generates an easier question. By adapting to the user as the assessment is taking place, these assessments present an individually tailored set of questions and can quickly identify which skills the user has mastered or what level they are at.  

 

The English test description says "about 40 multiple choice questions" because the number of questions varies.
