- When you have gone through the portal and are about to fall down again, place a portal on the platform beside you and go through the portal again.
- Do this two more times. You should then see angled panels somewhere. Shoot the portal there and you will reach the elevator.
Instead of activating the scaffold by directing the pellet into the catcher, you can simply fling yourself over to the cube if you're fast. When you step out into the room after deactivating all the turrets, immediately turn around and shoot a portal on the slanted platform, then jump down the ledge and shoot the other portal under you. You will fly and land in the room with the cube. At this point, the scaffold will activate without using the pellet at all.A glitched way to complete the test is to retrieve the camera from the turret room and place it against the door, bypassing the need to get the cube as the camera holds the door open
