Casi me desmayé vs Casi me desmayo

Hola, 

Just wanna clarify the translated answer for "I almost fainted". The correct answer given in the exercise is "¡Casi me desmayé!". On the lesson on 'Using por poco/casi/un poco más y + present tense for nearly/almost', says the verb should be conjugated in El Presente so my answer was "Casi me desmayo" which was marked as incorrect. Are there other considerations we should note with this construction?

Thanks,

Benhur

Hola Benhur

I've changed the model answer to the one using the present tense as we say in the lesson about casi. 

Gracias y saludos
