even if you feel like you rocked it how can you be predicting as high as a 177. My PT average was 179 and I *felt* after the test like I'd done just as well as usual, but I'm predicting 174 now

Well, this prediction relies crucially on how accurate my 7-8 guesses were. Math/probability wizards out there.... how well do you like the repetitive use of the letter "D" for blind guesses? What if I also had a lot of distracting gas during the last 2 sections?

I'm thinking anywhere from 160 to 171.

I'm feeling really good about one. Hopefully by this time tomorrow I'll have a new set of schools in the t14 to target.

your prediction has descended from 180 to 178 to 176 to 174, and yes, i do keep tracks.

I feel like the RC was the easiest section ive ever seen... And I normally eat dirt on those sections and still get 167-169. The LR was pretty easy.. but I slowed down on the last section because I got tired and guessed on a huge Parallel reasoning question. The Games.. ah the games. Funny thing is that I normally miss about 2-3 on games but the week before the test I lost some game confidence. During the test I misread a rule, left the game, finished the rest with enough time to go back, and redid the entire thing before time was called. Needless to say.. i have no idea.

If I truly did as well as I think on RC, its possible that I made up for any mistakes in Games..

I told myself id retake if I get lower than 165, which I rarely got in PT's...

I dont think I did... but im not about to throw numbers around.

As I am sure that most of you have no interest in what I've written here, I apologize for wasting space on your screens.*

I've been thinking this through over and over since the ninth.

RC - I'm good at these. I've seriously never missed more than two or three in a section, including my diagnostic. I felt good about the RC on test day so I'll say (-0 to -2).

LR - First section went smoothly, can't imagine I missed more than a couple. Second section came after my second games section, which means I was drained. I actually ended up having to guess on the last one and had no time to run back through my answers. I honestly could be anywhere from (-1 to -6) on these two.

LG - Games have never been my strong suit. On my diagnostic I missed a total of 16 questions, and 11 of them were from games. I've sped up considerably since then, but I still had to guess the last few questions. I seldom miss a question that I have time to do, so I think that my only incorrects here will probably come from the ones I guessed on. Even of those, I noticed that one letter was significantly underrepresented in my answer choices, so I guessed that one for the few I didn't have time to do at the end. Using this strategy before I've managed to nab a few extra points, then again sometimes I don't get any right that way. For this section my final verdict falls somewhere from (-3 to -5).

So, when I total it up it appears I could have missed anywhere from 4 to 13 questions. There's always the slight chance that things could go really well or really poorly and I could miss that window, but I'd say it's probably pretty accurate. I don't know what the curve will be, and people here can't seem to agree. I know a lot of people think that it'll be around -10 or -11, but others are convinced by historical patterns that indicate it'll be closer to -13. I'm hoping for the latter, but I tend to think that the former is more likely.

My score could be anywhere from the mid to upper 170's to the mid to upper 160's. Those of you who are aiming for the top schools know that where I fall within that gap will make all the difference in the world. If I have to pick a single score I'll be slightly pessimistic and pick 170. Honestly though, even a 170 would make me happy in a way. I'll still have one more chance to take the test, and I'll have a score in the bank that can get me into some really outstanding schools.


same line of thinking here. and same kind of prediction (viewtopic.php?f=6&t=132515&p=3497957#p3497957)

Really? You found the African passage easy? The other 3 were pretty easy, but I felt that last one made up any kind of leniency was present in the other 3.

I started with a goal of 172+. After the exam, I thought 168+ and I'd be happy. A week later, 166+. A week later 164+ and I won't want to die. Now, it is probably at 162+. So sad.

I'll say 163. Lowest possible score I can get and feel not crazy bad.

I second the post above me. I'm still kicking myself in the butt for not taking enough time with the last RC passage. No bueno.

I'm guessing anywhere in the 168-175 range. Probably toward the lower end of that, though.

Felt language was by far the hardest. Transnationalism was one of the easiest for me...art critics wasn't bad either.

Pessimistic: 161
Optimistic: 173
Realistic: 167

Retaking probably.
