What section ruined your score?

Postby JDWannabe » Sat Oct 30, 2010 12:57 pm

For me it was RC. -10. I was getting 5 to 7 wrong in practice so I'm pretty bummed right now.

LG. It was expected. Last section, no matter what the content always kills me.

LG + RC

RC was unusually bad and LG was off the charts bad. I have never seen such a low LG score.

Logic Games, -7 (usually -1 to -2)

Reading Comprehension (-9; may have misbubbled somewhere, so I'm analyzing first).

-14 RC. Guessed the same answer choice on every question in the African history passage and got them all wrong.

Still managed a 162 though thanks to my always flawless LG section.

Logical Reasoning....need to get it together! I was looking at the breakdowns, and am totally in awe at those who can limit their LR errors to 0-3...Any words of advice?

LG. -8. I usually got -8 if i had to guess on like an entire game. I had 2 guesses and just scattered 6 other misses across a few games. LR too, -9 total which was one of my lowest LR section scores in a while. And I'm pretty sure I got the harder LR ones right and missed easy ones like #1 and #3s

Interesting post. Another person posted the same thing on the Canadian forum.

I also find it interesting because, once the test was over, I accidentally knocked some stuff off of my desk. The guy sitting in front of me picked it up and handed it back to me. When he did that, I was looking forward and couldn't help but notice a string of "D" answers filled in. Since I was pressed for time during RC and guessed "A" on the final 6 questions, I was left thinking "shit, at least one of us is fucked."

Anyways, if you are from Canada, 162 is still respectable and can get you into several Canadian schools, so the end result wasn't too bad.

d00d...
-6 on LG. Worst I've ever done. I usually go -0 or -1.

December takers: Games are once again a hard part of the LSAT in my opinion.

Did you think anything of them after taking the test? I had the same experience but I felt confident in my LG score...It's always -0/-1 and I managed the -5. How, on god's green Earth I did that, I do not know. But I felt great after that section....

I remember thinking to myself... Okay that wasn't my greatest LG but -3 or -4 at the WORST. And I thought I was being conservative. Had no clue I could bomb it that bad

Haha that's the same person :p

But I had guessed all C's, not D's so that person was not me, nor did I pick up anything from anyone behind me. I'm also from BC, your username looks like you're from Manitoba. But yeah, I guess there isn't that many people that can say they got -14 in RC and still manage a 160+.

Can't believe I missed more on the last game than I did on the entire hard LR section that threw me off.

FAN-TAS-TIC.

The last half of the final section, which for me was the third LR section of the test. -9, gah. Going back over it now I see why I was wrong, its just annoying because for most of those, it was an either or scenario and I consistently managed to pick the wrong one.

LR, surprisingly. I thought I bombed LG, but got only -1 (the first question in the section, probably due to panic). But I got -3 on LR1, which is high for me. -0 on LR2, unfortunately not enough to make up for LR1. -1 RC, which I'm ok with.

LG murdered my score. Got to the my last game with 13 mins left, messed up a rule and panicked, then had to guess on 5. Ended up missing all 5 ofc. Turns what could have been a 178 into a 172. Now I don't know whether to retake in Dec expecting to ace the games, because I can't realistically expect to ace the RC again.

RC and LR1

LG: -2 (!!!)
LR2: -3

And I got a 161. You do the math for how many I missed in the other sections (I missed about the same amount for each) They were my first two sections too so I can't just say I ran out of stamina...
