I think I'm level C1 - C2 in English, but I still have to fully clarify the usage of tenses.

Do you know any complicated exercises/tests on tenses? I'm searching the most complicated ones, and combined for all tenses.

I'm currently reviewing the grammar, and in Murphy's and Hewings grammar books it is quite easy, because you have the rule and then the exercise to apply it which makes it fairly intuitive.

If you know any website, book... I've tried exam simulations such as Cambridge, but they have limited questions on tenses.

Many thanks

This is a punctuation test but it's also about tenses:

Punctuate this sentence:

john where jim had had had had had had had had had had had a better reception from the examiners

I'll post the answer later if you need it!
