    reliability can exist...  but that depends on how the test was made and donelike if you do it on a website... then reliability is... 0but if it is a standardized test, done at professional settings, then reliability could be much higervalidity.. that depends what your def'n of validity is..formal validity is really difficult, if not impossible, to proveto make results "valid", you must take into account all the factors influencing individual's performance on a test (that included an infinite number of aspects... temperature of the room, personality, mental state... etc... things that you just cannot possibly measure)so to answer your question... i guess the answer is no
