Man I hope you guys are right and glass had 6. That one and the last one I'm counting on getting -0 from. For some reason the 1st threw me for a loop, I hope it didn't have 7. For the guy that said 7 how sure are you?


I'm beginning to wonder if it was 6 - 7 - 5 - 5

I know I guessed on four in game three. I mis-diagrammed so hard on that one and made Human Resources two separate things. It was brutal.



I did the exact same thing, broke one of the courses into two and realized it too late. Helps explain why that game was so damn difficult

Glad I'm not the only one feeling utterly defeated by the games. Sweet merciful Christ, I was not expecting that. The first and last one were fine, but the two in between made me wanna cry and run out of the room.

On whole I didn't do as well as I hoped I would. It certainly did not help that I was right next to a window and VERY LOUD construction was occurring right across the street. For a solid 10-15 minutes straight. Is this grounds for a legitimate complaint?

Great, so not only did the test get postponed due to weather now I find out the LG are a nightmare? Anyone know what happens in the case of weather postponement?

ughhhh. i literally bubbled D for 8 questions on LG before time was even called, freaked out like crazy. and i (pretty much) always get -0. really needed a point or two above my first score (170), and apps already sent. now...is it still possible.....? i don't remember feeling like RC or LRs were too bad. crippled with indecision about whether or not to cancel.

People: stop asking about if it's 102 questions or which section was experimental. Just read back a few pages; someone already asked your question. You're cluttering the thread with a ton of bullshit.

this looks like the clearest case of yo should cancel ever...you usually get -0 and had to guess on that many?

Alicen-

don't worry, I did the pretty much the same thing. If you already have a 170 and you really put 8 Ds, then I would cancel.

Ha I dream in a world where -6 will get me 180. Besides, I got -6 on ONE section.

i know, but i have always PTed around 175 (ridiculous issue on the real thing in oct)...is it unrealistic to hope for a 171 even?

During the logic games, I actually just gave up for a second and thought "why would anyone ever build a window with ONLY green, orange, and purple? Disgusting."

alicen-

To make a substantial difference, you would have to get 2-4 points higher. From what it sounds like, you didn't do that. Cancel your score, and enjoy the fact that you beat 98 percent of all people.

I didn’t even take the test but just reading it from your perspectives I have no idea what I would have done in that type of situation either (No space to write on LG1)!! Are you supposed to do it all in your head?? I’m dying to hear what the curve is going to be! I mean, some people study everyday for a year!!! And to put no space to write???
