seriously. I could have gone from 0-10+ wrong in that LG. after about 15 minutes and seeing the third game, I was like "OMG FML. God please help me and give me a miracle" :shock:

I normally have no problem with the RC, but the Jewett passage threw me.

Also, I had three LRs, so I don't have them separated to clearly in my brain. Gah. It hurts.


The conferences was killer...I dont think I got any wrong on the other games but conferences I think anywhere from 1-4 wrong. It was hard for me to make any inferences and I was panicking cause I read a rule wrong in game 2

My order was RC, LR, LG, LG, LR.

I thought I did pretty decent on the first two sections, then I had to guess on the entire last game of the exp LG and was praying that was the exp. Got my wish and only had to guess on one question in the real LG. Second LR seemed harder than the first to me. Now all there is to do is wait for the score.

Also thought the Jewett passage was the hardest.

Also, I only wrote 98 words (though the words were pretty solid) for the writing section. I've already heard that that section doesn't matter, but I should be good, right?

I know the feeling. It was my second game, and put me in a panic for the rest of them.

Also, you have my respect for being a Lions fan brave enough to display that avatar. +1

I feel like we are the same person.. The really long first game with no room to write, the stained glass, and the conference game... WTF. That LG section was really difficult and I would be canceling except there is no point because it is the third for me within two years.

I'm pretty sure I -0'd LG too, so kind of nice to see the consensus thinking it's tricky. Hopefully that makes up for a bad RC.

Damn, this is going to be tough decision...

A few points up or down could make or break me, and I honestly don't know how I did. I didn't feel all that well this morning, but I still finished both LR's and the RC. The LG killed me. I ended up guessing on like five questions at the end. Given that I never lose more than 4 or 5 points combined on LR/LR/RC and that I rarely miss a LG question I have time to finish, I could have missed enough to drop into the 160's or few enough for an improvement. On the bright side, having to think about this for the next few days ought to make my finals even more enjoyable.

I had

LR RC LR LR LG


I know the first LR must have been the experimental unless the test was out of 102 (which is highly unlikely)

Hey, So was the RC with the Parliament and British Government expiremental? Also, by my calculation there was 102 questions is that correct?

Can't remember the other LR, but thought this would save other posters a lot of hassle.


Dental decay RC: Was this also the RC with the passage about the domestic novels? (I had two RCs)

I am going to hate stained glass windows forever because of this.


The one about Jewett (sp?)? Yeah. Also one about medical illustrations in courts.


Thanks! ...and I think I'm screwed. The experimental one was easier, dammit.

LR RC LR LR LG


Initial Reaction? As good or slightly better than my 161 in October.

LG again was disappointing. I just don't know how to handle those at least conditions.

But considering my much better sleep I felt a lot sharper in the LR and RC which I think was worth 3-4 more raw points.

I'm in the same boat, but I'm leaning towards canceling because I've already been accepted to my state school with a scholarship, but they haven't determined the amount. Would a lot lower score have a negative effect on my scholarship amount?

I had the same sequence of section and yes the first section was experimental. I could tell when I was taking it that it was because the questions were very awkward.

Was the LR with all the questions of one particular type the experimental(unsure if I can say which type it was, but one LR had a LOT of "X" type questions"

Also the LG was killer. Thank GOD I skipped ahead to the last game when the stained glass fucked me over.
