Yeah, the Item Response Report gives you your answers compared to the credited answers....that's really strange. Maybe check back later, and if not, then call LSAC on Monday to find out what happened. Sorry, mate. Hope your score was good though.

For me...

LR1 - 5 (wtf, this was my first section too)
LR2 - 3
LG - 0
RC -3

LR -4
RC -1
LR -3
LG -1

-9 for a 172, do you guys think I should retake?? Usually in PTs I only get 0-3 LR questions wrong in total. I'm thinking I could've scored somewhere in the high 170s. Any opinions?

-4 LR (ugh)
-3 RC (I'll take that honestly)
-3 LR (ugh)
-4 LG (///wrist)

If I would have managed -0/-1 like I normally did on LG, it would have been a 170/171 and I would be in such a better space. Instead I panicked on nurses and am left with this garbage situation.

Also on LR I only missed two questions that were by consesus hard. Shakespeare and rule of law. The other 5 I missed were damn easy questions that I was just an idiot about. Realistically this test had the potential to be as high as a 175-177 for me but I blew it pretty bad.

Already signed up for December.

-1RC, -2LR, -1LG, -3LR.

In RC, I changed at least three answers and agonized over a couple. One of the answers I changed THREE TIMES lmfao. Obviously I was worried about my baby, RC, since she was my ace in the hole. Fortunately, two of those changed answers were changed to right ones, only one was changed to a wrong one (but if I hadn't changed at all, -2, so, it works out). The one I changed three times? TOTALLY RIGHT WTF.

-2LR. Yep, this is pretty normal for me. Checked out what I got wrong, pretty usual.

-1LG. Well, can't say I wasn't wishing for a -0. But a -1 is lovely and I'll take it. Missed it on artifacts. Ah, such is life.

-3LR. LOL I'm laughing at this. They all came from the last 4 questions of the question. I think I was tired!

-6 LR1
-14 RC (yeah, go laugh.)
-0 LG (I NEVER make mistakes here and ALWAYS finish early.)
-3 LR2

Usually -8 total on LR in practice, this time -9 total. I guess the killer was RC. Usually -9 or -10. ALL my guesses were wrong this time.

I had 68 right so it's a 156


RC: -9 (my first section)

The first two passages I was (-1); I got 2/6 on the third passage which was comparative reading and 4/8 on the last passage. I had about three questions to go when the 5 minute warning went by. For me, RC has been a hit and miss. Sometimes I get -3 out of 27 questions, then I could get -12 in another section. did any of you guys feel that the passages were harder as time went on?

LR1 with 25 questions: -8 (my third section)

I answered the 1st question wrong picking B instead of choice D on a flaw question. WTF was I thinking? Scary thing here, I changed two wrong answers to the right answer choices on my answer sheet. I've averaged from -8 to -4 on LR sections, so this was on the lower side of my performance, but not an outlier bad day.

LG: -7 (my fourth section)

I was given a verbal warning by proctors for breathing too hard according to a test taker who sat two seats away from me (a chair between us), and I was never the same after that. I didn't breathe too hard in my opinion.. Asked another test taker who sat right next to me and she said I was fine. I did ask her before the guy who reported me came back from break.... I typically average -1 to -2 in logic games. I missed one question on the first two games, then the third game (track meet) killed my time partly because I was pissed, and I may have been thinking about my verbal warning more than the test, and I only got 3/6 in this game, and also 3/6 on the last game which I had six minutes to do. I guess 3/6 isn't that bad when I was working frantically on that last game still worrying about an irregularity which fortunately didn't happen.

LR2 with 26 questions: -9 (my 5th section)

Again, I wasn't ever the same after my warning. But my performance here wasn't that much different than the first LR section. I missed each of the last three questions due to timing issues (I was still thinking about that warning), and five of my last eight. At least two of them were questions I normally got right.

In short, most of my sections were at the bottom range of my averages, except logic games.... I am dwelling on how my test would've been without the warning...

My breakdown really pissed me off. I had like a melt down on the first and last sections...

RC -9
LR1 (25Qs) -3
LG -3
LR2(26Qs) -9

those two -9 really pissed me off...

RC: -4
LR1: -2
LG: -7
LR2: -1


I typically get -0 or -1 in RC. LG was about what I expected, but I think I can improve if I work on it. LR were spot on with PTs.

I got a 168. If I can shave off 2-3 RC and 3-4 LG, I can hit 173+. So, yes, I think I will retake in December.

I already posted on the first page...

LR1: -2
RC: -1
LR2: -3
LG: -1

Lucked out at the end of LG with two guesses that worked out. For whatever reason, the end of the second LR beat me up, with all three wrong answers coming on the last four questions.

RC: -10
LR: -3
LG: -2
LR: -4

Clearly having RC first is not the best scenario for me.

RC: -3
LR1: -7
LG: -7
LR2: -3

And of course I was another one of those people who had mostly flawless LG sections up until the test. My first ever raw diag was a -0. God damnit. Pretty sure I aced the experimental LG also. Lame.

1. RC -4 I had one more question right and changed it. Damn!
3. LR -2
4. LG -1 My best ever LG on a PT was -3, I think
5. LR -3

Total: -10 => 171

So nothing really "killed" me, although maybe having the hardest one to concentrate on (RC) first wasn't the best for me. Best LG ever. No stupid mistakes, didn't run out of time and have to guess at all. I wish I hadn't changed the one question, though!

RC -1
LR -9
LG -6
LR -5

RC has always been my best section from the very start; it was also my first section of the test for which I am thankful.
Overall, this was pretty inline with my PT's, except I got about 3 more right in LG than usual which put me above my PT average.

I'm in the same boat. I was almost flawless over the 20 PTs leading up to the real test but I was -12 on the real deal. 10 of which were in a row. I don't understand. I just redid those games and was -0 with 4 min left. FML. Dec here I come.

Ah, what could have been.
