# Skips using Next Loop Iteration | Problem?

Hi all, I seem to be having an issue with skips and loops. I have four total questions in a loop:

Anchor 1 = q1q3
Anchor 2 = q2q4

My requirement is that if the first iteration of q1q3 = 2, then skip to the second iteration (skipping the first iteration of q2q4). If the second iteration of q1q3 = 2, skip to the next question.

` q1q3.1 = 2 `

My problem is that if the second iteration
` q1q3.2 = 1`

I do not see the second iteration of q2q4 (because this skip should only happen if q1q3.2 = 2). It seems the first skip takes precedent. I cannot understand where I'm getting tripped up. Hopef this question makes sense.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you add LoopIteration() to your skip logic, you can make sure each skip only runs if the respondent is in the relevant loop iteration:

```q1q3.1 = 2 And LoopIteration() = 1
```

```q1q3.2 = 2 And LoopIteration() = 2
```
