I am going to say a -11 or a -12. I thought the LR was harder than June, games were easier, RC was more time consuming not necessarily harder.

I would think the curve is at least -10 for a 170.

More often than not in the last ten years (correct me if I'm wrong, I could be remembering wrong), the fall curve has been more generous than the June curve. And even when it wasn't, it only strayed by 1 to 2 points. So considering the fact that the June curve was -13, I think we can at least hope for a -10.

Besides, as you've all pointed out, it looks like quite a few people struggled with LGs, esp. the artifact question. So we have at least one reason to believe that the curve will not be a stingy one.

Honestly, I can't remember ANYTHING about the first 3 games. I didn't have a ton of trouble with them, they just consumed most of my time and I had to rush through the last game. I only remember the last game and a variable "Lightfoot" or something and I thought it sounded something like an elf from Lord of the Rings...

The best part was he was a nurse... I kept imagining like this rustic boot camp for kids where they all get spirit names like that random show I used to watch when I was like 13.

After thinking about it all night, I believe the curve will be difficult.

While LR was easy for a lot of people here, it wasn't easy for the average test taker, there were a lot of questions that you might not know how to deal with if you were a straight from the bibles test taker(like the cooking question)

I didn't use anything I learned in studying to get that, I just knew how to approach it. There were a few questions like that. So I'm thinking LR was harder than we believe.

LGs appeared easy but as many people have said they required a lot of hy[pos

I'm really hoping for at least a -11.

After the first three sections I kinda thought that it wasn't my best test to date, but wasn't my worst either, so I was happy with that. Knew which sections were going to be showing up after the break as well (because of what I had before the break) so mentally, I feel like I should have been more prepared when we started up again. When I first looked at the LG section, I was surprised to see games which seemed to be easy (on the surface!) - turned out to be rather time consuming and ended up running short for time on the fourth game. Finished the section, but not confidently.

Guess I really just don't know what to think about it. Wrote in February and thought I'd done well, but no. Now I'm feeling like I may have blown this one and may be looking to December.

May the 'Generous Curve Gods' be smiling on this test!!!

So do you mean the curve will be "easy" then?
