Yeah, hey. I had the exact same sequence of sections that you did, so no luck figuring out which one was experimental I guess. I thought the first LR was pretty tough, so hoping that one is experimental. But the second LR had a lot of similar types of questions so hard to say. Okay overall...ran into trouble with the final LG for some reason. Nice testing facility though eh?

Oh yea, it was a very nice hall. I totally choked on games. I am so upset. I think I did well all on all the LRs, but mehh. Did you sit towards the front or back? I couldn't see the clock from my view so I had to rely strictly on my inner clock.

You probably took the same test as people in the US if you look over at the other sections. It would be hard to scale a test just based off international test takers. The experimental sections were all jumbled this year so you will just have to look over questions.

It appears some LR might had been the same, but the RC and games were definitely different.

The last game was definitely tricky; mad about that one. I was also working down to the wire on every section, which I usually don't do on PTs. I was near the front but also had a wristwatch so that helped. Still no idea how I did though. Ugh.

RC and LG were definitely different. Still trying to figure out the LR though.

It appears only the 2 of us are on here right no. Hopefully, a few other folks will chime in soon enough

I took it in Korea: LG, LR, RC, LR, RC. The first RC section was so easy while the second one had the "feel" of RC sections on PT 56-60 but was still easier, although I didn't have enough time to bubble in #27. Therefore, I am almost 100% certain that the first "easy" RC was the experimental one.

First LR section=easy. Second=moderately difficult.

Logic games, were easy, more like logic games from the mid 2000's than the recent ones. That's bad because I froze at the beginning, kinda sorta guessed on #19, and outright guessed on 20, 21, and 22. So I threw away a bunch of easy points on what is probably a tight curve.

So, I'm guessing -6 on logic games, -3 RC, and -3 LR.

I think the curve is going to be around -9 or -10, which means I'm probably either retaking or going to a Canadian school, as I won't be getting any money in the T14 with a 167 or 168.

JUST BOMBED MY TEST IN HONG KONG. it was pretty bad stuff. LR-LG-LR-RC-LR. I thought the first LR was tough, told myself i'd do well in LR2, but hell that last section was a BEAST. I don't know what has changed but I felt that I've never done anything like that in any of the PTs. it seems to be a mix of the worst of the old and the new tests...Ended up running out of time when I was going into the 23rd question or sth. BAD

RC was tough too. Didnt have time to finish and guessed 3 answers. but LG was easier than most of the recent ones. hopefully i'll get a -0 for that. but in any case I'm pretty sure I won't get a decent score :( it better be a -14 curve this time.

I was in Hong Kong too. LR-LG-LR-RC-LR, can't be sure which was the experimental, but if I had to bet I'd say it was the third.

i had LR, LG, LR, RC, LR.

i'm trying to figure out which LR was experimental. i remember LR3 had a question about time machines (which i found quite amusing), and i was wondering if you guys had it as well.

thanks for the help in advance.

Alright, I think I went -3 on that section and -5 on the games and somewhat better than both on LR.

What do you think the curve was? I'm hoping for -11 +, but I think maybe it was -9. The whole thing felt like PT 54 or 55, both of which I bombed.

I would guess about -10. It wasn't that bad.

Afraid you're right. -9 or -10.

lol dude we both had three LR sections, so the fact that you had timemachine can't help us find out which one was the experimental.

I had two LR. I'm 99% sure I had nothing on time machines, so it was probably experimental :-)

Yep, too easy, and I didn't get to 3 of them (+ 1 educated guess).

Not cancelling but definitely retaking. It sucks that this test was nondisclosed, though.
