    Default test or test-paper

    You made a few mistakes in the test / in your test paper.

    Which is a better option?

    The 'test paper' is the sheet handed out by the teacher with the test questions on it. So, if there are errors, they are those of the person who wrote/typed the sheet. The sentence would be spoken to that person by some member of staff proofreading the test paper.
    'test' as in 'You made a few mistakes in the test' refers to the students answers.

    It's "the answer sheet."
