Make-up Test "non-disclosed administration"?

Postby bigdatta » Sun Feb 21, 2010 4:53 pm

The make-up test letter they sent me included the following:

"This will be a non-disclosed administration; therefore, you will only receive your test score."

What the heck does that mean? Will there be no percentage as to how I compare with the other test takers, or a break-down by section?

Does this matter? Is there any word on how law schools view such a thing?

Feb exams have not been disclosed in general since 2000, whether they're make-ups or not.

Law schools don't care.

Don't worry.

You'll get your percentile and score. Just no break-down, seeing your answers, etc.

Ok, thanks.

Not real happy though that I won't be able to check and see if there was a scoring mistake.

you get the same bunch of nothing that you would have gotten if you took the test on the regular February date. The fact that it was non-disclosed was made known at the time of registration...

Yeah, This...what is it about February that nothing is EVER disclosed...I got my Sept test back and now use it as a study guide for my retake.

Let the conspiracy theories begin! 1, 2, 3....GO!

Test-making companies don't disclose certain tests so that they can reuse them. LSAC is pretty good about not doing this stupidly, but they do reuse tests a little from time to time.

For comparison, AAMC rarely releases MCATs because they've been recycling the same darn questions since the 90s.
