When can I expect RC to become more difficult?

Postby StrictlyLiable » Thu Jun 03, 2010 9:35 am

RC is by far my weakest section. I usually only attempt 3 passages with maybe 2-3 wrong of attempted. I have started working through PT 1 and I am currently on PT 26. I have read on TLS that the RC becomes more difficult in higher numbered tests, but there has not been a definitive answer of when I can expect this increasing of difficulty?

I did not notice any increase in difficulty. This seems to be more of a change in style that some people noticed (and were bothered by). Some people find older ones easier, some don't.

Like a more convoluted passage or harder questions as far as the style?

I find the comparative passages to be easy since they are usually broken into two viewpoints that are easy to compare/contrast. Convoluted and hard questions is what I am afraid of in higher numbered passages.

I would say anything from 54 and later starts the ramp up, but 57-59 especially are more subtle.

I think the questions got a little harder in the modern tests. The Q types aren't different, but there are a lot more tempting answer choices / wth questions.

See PT 55 Talk Story Cotton Fiber Question.
