I hope the first was experimental.

LR LG LR RC LR like I said.

I know the last was real. But I cannot remember any of the questions people have been talking about.

I also went LR LG LR RC LR

I thought I did really well on the 1st and 5th LR sections (like -2/-3 max hopefully), but I felt like the LR in the 3rd spot was harder, and it felt more like a -4/-5

For my sake, hopefully that was the experimental, as it likely means the difference of a few points...not to mention that I went -0 LG on 20 straight PTs only to have to guess on 2 LG questions in game 2. I'm guessing that I failed to make an inference or two since I left that game after those 2 questions didn't come easily

Sigh.

We know the experimental was LR, but that doesn't have any relevance to WHEN it was, correct? For example, I could've had the LR experimental as the 1st section, but someone else could've had it the 3rd section, correct?

My brain is so fried that I don't even remember any of the questions on any of the LRs, so I couldn't break the rules even if I wanted to...lol

Im glad to hear that im not the only one with a lot of D's and E's although im still nervous about it considering that I am usually in the -1 range for LR and only had like 3 A's

i don't remember any strange question except the last one in my first LR says "comparison" in the stimulus

3|ink wrote:That sucks, because I can't really answer your question without breaking forum rules. I will say this though: I suspected that my first LR was experimental until I had another RC. They had some strange question types this time around. Don't let that throw you off. The strange one may have been real.

I thought the first of the three LRs was hard, the second easy, and the last medium.

Me too! That's about the only question I can remember! My exp was RC. And unfortunately I did better on the experimental than on the scored. Sigh.

The flickering ring of gas around a black hole? That was in the third LR right?

So confident about everyone with the D's/E's. I too had VERY few A's and cried after the test at home about it.lol. Anyways, there's nothing to do but wait now. If its good, great. If not, hello October. :D

So I had LR, LG, LR, RC, LR

My LRs in order had 25, 26, and 25 questions.

I reasoned from this that the 2nd and 3rd would be real since they would add to 51 and my 23 question LG and 27 question RC would add up to 101. But if some of you all are claiming that both of your LR were only 25 then this could lead me to think that our test only had 100 questions. Anyone have any knowledge of tests having only 100 questions?

I also had a ton of Ds and Es on one of the LRs, I went back and checked some of them specifically and they all looked good.

Which LG was real? I had two. One had a crazy mapping game or something.

There are a lot of tests with only 100 questions. I don't know what the percentage is, but I took about 15 PTs and several had just 100.

Alot of past tests I've noticed have been out of 100. But I'm just praying that I didn't misbubble (I had 3 25s)

That really sucks. The other LG I got was a freaking breeze. I expected the real one to be an experimental because it had that mapping game (mulch?).

I think we've allready determined that the 2 scored had 25 (I think). so looks like the test will be out of 100

you guys know you can't mention the specifics of exam questions, right? Not until the exam is released.

The one with the underground bands is real. The one with monkeys and mammals is not.

I remember the rockbands was from the last section but I can't remember where the mammals one was though.

I had RC-LR-LG-LR-RC

One of my LRs was like that.... tons of Ds and Es, I was concerned. Underground bands was a scored LR section, but I don't remember anything about gorillas.
