My guess was conservative based on my perception of the test, but I ended up being pretty accurate in what I thought about the difficulty (although I anticipated a sharper curve).

Beat PT average (last-15) by 4 points, beat expectation by 5 points.

This was my first time taking it and I was nervous, so that may have influenced my thinking that it was terrible coming out. I ended up beating my PT average by about half a point, so I'm pretty happy.

My impressions of the sections were VERY accurate. Felt good about RC, kind of iffy about first LR, great about LG and second LR.

Did worse than expected on that LR section, though. Having to pee during questions 1-10 on that section really really messed me up. Went -1 RC, -5 LR, -0 LG, -0 LR

Had RC first and thought I absolutely bombed the section. I was in a pretty sour mood for the rest of the exam and left thinking I had to retake. Turns out I did only slightly below average on RC (-3) and LG (-2) with my score being in line with my PT average (170).

Still registered for Dec. test, and 50/50 on going through with it.

I did better. I got lucky though. I compensated for a -8 RC with a -2 LR 2.

Moral of the story. If you were practice testing well and where you wanted to be, dont give up.

I felt weird coming out of the exam and my score was exactly that, weird. I was decimated by LG when I normally ace that section. That alone messed up my score. Also, RC being first really messed with my head. It was an easy RC, that's for sure, but I still felt bad. I had zero confidence in every answer. But despite this I knew I didnt do terrible, just that my distribution may be a-typical for me...and it was...very a-typical.

Walked out thinking that I screwed up my normally stellar LG, but that the RC and LR were easier than what I normally did. Turns out I was completely right with -6 in LG (PT avg -0/-1), -2LR (PT avg ~-5), RC -1 (PT -3). So I still hit my PT avg, just in a weird way.

Having RC, RC as my first two sections, with the second one (experimental) being insanely tough, also really screwed with my head. I decided to give up on the second section with a few minutes left to compose myself a bit for the rest of the test. I figured there was no use in killing myself for one section when I still had 3 left. It worked out for the best since I did better from that point on.

left the test thinking I smoked LR and maybe missed 4 or 5 LG. Missed the first fucking LR question on LR1 and #3 on LR2 on the way to -9 LR (off from avg of 4 or so) and -8 on LG, the most I've ever missed when not having guessed on an entire game.
