Is it me or was this test especially hard?

Its you. No I'm kidding, did you not look at the curve? 81/101 is a 165. Haven't taken it yet but I am not looking forward to it. What was so hard about it if you don't mind me asking?

I was just brushing up and my PT score dropped from consistently mid 160's to a 155 on this test (all testing conditions being similar) :shock:

It was especially hard. My score dropped from consistently mid-170s to 169. I thought the reading comp was ridiculous (I don't remember the last time I got more than -1 on RC).

It was significantly harder than average (hence the lovely scoring scale). I hated life when I left the testing center, and I debated canceling up until the very last minute. Very glad I didn't end up making that all-timer of a mistake.

Yes it's hard! I was reviewing this test tonight also. It was brutal when I took it in Dec.

When all of you say the test was "hard," are you saying that you had a low raw score but the curve fit the test, or are you saying that you scored lower than usual.

I think that since they say the curve was larger and they scored worse I imagine their raw score was less than usual. I was wondering, what made the RC so much more difficult?

Yeah, the third RC passage about Noguchi was kinda hard, but the questions were just atrocious. #16 especially.

The LG games section was pretty easy compared to other tests I thought. Although, those rule substitution questions kind of threw me for a loop.
