Same. My other sections were -3, -2, -4, so having a -10 was pretty disappointing.

I did too lol. Still managed a -5 on it though, which I'm happy with. RC is another story, but after seeing others had problems with it, I feel a little better about my bombing it.

I was missing 4-7 in RC in practice on RC, I got -1 on the real thing :cry: Now I'm afraid that this is an anomaly and that retaking will just result in me getting screwed on RC instead of the other sections.

What actually killed me was LG. I thought I got -0 walking out of the tes,t but in reality it was -5. coupled with poor performance on LRs, my performance is exactly opposite of my practice tests, where I would miss mayve a total of 4-5 on all the LRs/LG combined and then proceed to destroy my score with a miserable RC performance. Now RC was my best section :evil:

In the same boat. Usually I do -2 on RCs (even on PTs 50-60) but on the test I did -7!!! :( I would have hit 173 if I had -2 on RC and a point or two higher in the other sections

The first LR section. Something definitely happened in my brain! My test went RC (-1), LR (-5), LG (-0), LR (-0)... and I never get more than 3 wrong per LR section... and more like 2 wrong at the max in LR in the few PTs before the test. GAH!

-3 RC (all in the same passage, that was oft discussed on here.)
-1 on the last LR
-3 on the earlier LR (it was the 2nd in my packet, I had 3 LR. Interestingly, this is the one I thought we'd all agreed was experimental. I had RC LR LR LG LR and I thought it was the second (middle) LR everyone said was experimental, as it seemed MUCH harder than the 1st one. but obviously that was wrong. I wish the first one had been real, I'd have done so much better.
-8 LG. (DIE).

167 total.

Pt'd 165-173
expected 168, based on how I felt leaving the test center.

Ugh.

LG for sure. -8. I havent done that poorly in a LONG time. Couple that with a weird -5 on a LR (Im a -0 to -2 kind of gal) and you see how I only managed a 167. I've already registered for December 11th. Here was my breakdown:

LR: -5

RC: -1

LR: -2

LG: -8

For a grand total of -16. The effin WORST

-12 on LG

Over the last 20 PTs I was almost flawless -0, max -3. I missed ten in a row on this test. I may have miss bubbled. I just redid them and was -0. FML.

LG -9!!! 163!!!

LG always makes me or breaks me (breaks me in this case), and I'm almost always either -0/-1 or -8/-9 depending on if I panic over timing or not. Going to seriously practice LG between now and December! Ugh!

RC: -8

Got a 171, so you can see how the RC really, really ruined my score.

Pretty uniform for me: -2, -2, -3 RC hurting the most. The section that hurt me the most was the section of my brain responsible for logic and attentiveness.

LG killed me score, I was sort of expecting it, though. -10 for the loss. Especially after getting -2 LR and not having a PT below 167. December for the win.

LR1. I got three out of the first four questions wrong, wow. Frankly I think my brain just took a little while to warm up, and that it took me a few questions to begin firing on all cylinders.

I'm happy with the 169 I got, and it's adequate for my purposes. But man, had I got those questions--which, looking back, were apparently pretty easy--right, I'd have a 171 now.

Ah well, such is life.
