Yet another should I cancel/logic games killed me

Postby cinefile 17 » Sat Oct 09, 2010 5:18 pm

I already have a 169.

I feel decent about the test except for the logic games. I had to guess on 7 of them.

On my PTs I usually finish all of the sections. Often on the PTs where I don't finish, I make up for it elsewhere and usually do decent. However, I'm not super confident in the rest of my sections either. The RC and LR were about average (no big mistakes that I know of). On the one hand I think maybe I should cancel to avoid having a lower score on my file (and hurt my chance at schools where I'm on the edge). On the other hand, I think maybe I did really well on the rest of the test and might even have gained a point or so (definitely not more than that). I can't see myself getting less than a 167, but I also couldn't have gotten more than about a 171. Should I cancel?

7 guesses? Definitely cancel. I can't imagine scoring lower than a previous test will look good...and you probably aren't looking at anything above a -10 or -11 curve this test.

You are in exact situation I was in June. I had a 170 and retook and games killed me. I ended up getting a 168 because I missed all of the 6 I guessed on and I bombed RC. It's a tough call, but I'm glad I didn't cancel because there was a realistic chance that I would get 170+.

I say keep your score. Even a 170 will make a big difference for you.

I would cancel... the curve wouldn't be so generous this time so if you dont think you will get higher than 171 anyway, why risking having a lower score on the record?
