So I just want to say, this second read must help very few people yes? I mean think about it- you get re-read if your first score is over 1390. But to bring your average up to 1440 that means the second read for someone in the high 1300's would have to be in the HIGH 1400's, which is basically not possible right? It seems to me they should use the higher of the two reads if they're going to bother reading again, otherwise what is the point? I mean, use the higher of the two for each essay, or use the higher of the two overall reads, but if you're going to average them and you're already very close, how many people can that possibly help? I just don't understand how a second read really helps them do anything other than cover their butts. Which let's be honest, do they even care about that?
Obviously I'm bitter. *Sigh* But I'm right back on the horse, studying for July.
I agree. The regrades are stupid if you don't just use the higher scores. To spark a regrade requires at least a 1390, but to get the total over 1440 means the regrade needs to be like 1490. No one gets that high. It basically only helps people who got a 1435, then a regrade.
