My first section was LG, which is by far my worst of the three. It was rather difficult and I was certain that it was the experimental. The next up was reading, which I did great on. That was a shame, because despite my great outlay of focus on the reading, I got nailed with another reading in the second half, which means that the first was experimental. This means that I did poorly on the LG, and the reading I thought I did well on didn't count (but the one I'm certain I didn't do as well on does). That's a major disappointment. If I had two LG and only the one reading I think my score might be in the 166 range, but given the turn of fate that hit me I think I'm more likely to get a 160. And man does it hurt. Should I cancel? I'm not interested in anything below top 30, and if I get below a 164-165 I'm certainly going to retake it.
man this is exactly how mine went. for whatever reason... this being my first sitting maybe... I froze in the first section LG and sucked. dominate LR, RC, LR and then BAM.... replaced my awesome RC with another fail. Did poorly cuz I really thought fate was going to give me another LG and then I realized with 30 seconds to spare I had bubbled 28 for 27 questions... never fixed them all. FML. I swore I'd never be a retaker.... now thoughts of cancel for the next few days
Yea this is how my test was too. I was hoping for another LG section so I could improve. It never came, except in my case I thought I did better on the second RC, that first one caused me to zone out quite a bit with the material they were discussing. It was tough to keep my head in the game, the second RC...I dunno I was just sharper after the break and I galvanized myself a bit. I finished it with like 2 min left, which aside from my LG which I ran out of time on, was the most time I used on the test.
That writing part is such a joke everyone in my testing room was done in no more that 20 min. We all just sat there for awhile looking like goons.
