2010 curve

Okay I have reviewed the previous tests curves and I found that as of recently prep 56 57 58 59 60 there has consistently been a higher curve than previously.
Do you think this pattern will keep up considering the irregualar questions on the logical reasoning?

if so what do you guys think a raw score of 75 will average..
what do you guys think?

There's really no way to predict the exact scaled score for a 75 raw, but you can get an idea by using the guesses/predictions in the links, then referring to past PT's that have the same curves to see what a 75 equated to before.

Re: 2010 curve

75 will probably get you a 160/161. Thats based on either a -10 or -11 scale. For the life of me, I really don't see the curve being greater than a -12 but we're been wrong on this before.

Re: 2010 curve

75 with get you a score of 160(+-2) since the curve will be tight. Judging from what a lot of people been saying, it seems LR (B) will set the curve. I see a -10 Curve but I'm praying for a -14. Realistically -11 is the best LSAC will probably set the curve at for this test.

If we get a -14 curve, that means LR alone is responsible. I would be happy

Re: 2010 curve

My guess is -12 for a 170. I think this test was a bit harder than folks are saying. Hope I'm right.

Re: 2010 curve

Any question that get thrown out by LSAC will hurt me since i did worst in LG and it is unlikely a LG question would be removed from scoring.

Yea we all could be mistaken. I think LR was harder than many people realize.

Re: 2010 curve

-10 or -11 I guarantee it. Probably -11 if they follow the trend of a difficult june test followed by a hard but easier october test

Re: 2010 curve

over 50% of ppl in a poll for Dec 09 thought it would be -10 or -11, and it was -14.

Re: 2010 curve

Well the only thing is that 2 or 3 wrong LR isn't really gonna ruin the test for most people. Average scale -10 to -11. For testing purposes the higher the better so there is more differentiation between scores so I doubt LSAC is going to abandon the recent average

I'm still sticking to my -10 prediction, for the 29th time. Seriously, every time one of these threads comes out we rehash the exact same discussion

Re: 2010 curve

Agreed the December was underestimated by some it seems, but we were lacking mauve dinosaurs in October. I'm not saying that one LR section wasn't a fairly difficult one, but I don't think it was impossible by any means. I think a lot more people were thrown by the dino game and the way it affected the rest of that section (similar to mulch game in June) than by the one LR that had maybe 2 or 3 oddball questions. I just feel like a -11 is fair, I certainly don't want it to be, but I think it is.

Re: 2010 curve

-11 or -10 is fair, with a stretch being -12. Above -12 is dreaming, it's not going to happen. I'd be more surprised if the test was -13 than if it were -9.
