He's trying to say he can't perform under test conditions. Good at practice, choker when it comes to the real thing

He scored a freaking 170 on the real thing! How horrible can he be at it? Yeah, ten points is substantial, but I would venture a guess that luck and other variables come into play when you're in that range that consistently scoring it might be more difficult than someone who is of lower caliber. Obviously it can be done, but my point was that it's silly to write yourself off whether you've scored a 170 or 180 -- both are great.

i get wat ur saying but it all depends on the person...a 170 is great for 99% of the people out there...but for .01% of the people a 170 is a bad performance.

the op is capable of getting a 180 and has gotten it in practice, so a 10 pt drop to a 170 is a bad performance. we cant apply the same standard to everyone

Just so you can get some closure, I scored a 175 on my retake.

172, retake to 179. If you think you can score higher, go for it.
