Test Center disaster

Postby PierceFromCT » Tue Jun 08, 2010 1:14 pm

I was five minutes into the real LG section and the light above my table started going on and off and making obnoxious noises. I tried to concentrate, but it was f*ing impossible, so I raised my hand for the proctor and then a bunch of proctors came over and talked around me before suggesting I move up one table. Yeah, that didn't really help, I was still under the strobe light. They sucked up so much time and I was so distracted... I had less than 5 minutes to complete the Romania/Spain/Tuscany Logic Game. I couldn't set up the problem really--just had to eliminate and make educated guesses for the last four.

After the section, they moved me and my table neighbor across the room so we weren't under the light, but is there anything I can do with the LSAC? I'm really pissed since I usually score in the 170-175 range with 0/-1 for LG. This could push me just under. Friends have suggested contacting the LSAC, explaining the situation, seeing if there's anyway to find out my LG score before canceling, but I don't think the LSAC would ever do anything like that despite the situation. Has anyone heard of them making an exception, and allowing the tester to find out their score before canceling due to these sort of problems???

No, they absolutely will not let you find out your score. You know better than that.

But I feel for you. That sucks so bad.

If you are 170-175 and you had to guess for 4 questions you need to contact LSAC and get them to let you retest for free, and cancel your score. They absolutely will not let you see your LG score before deciding this.
