Not awful, but I think a bit more difficult than October. I'm considering canceling and sticking with my first score, but I want to see what you guys think about the curve, what was fake, etc.

EDIT: There were indeed 102 questions.

What does everyone think?

I had RC LR LG LG LR.

RC: Typical difficulty.

LR 1: I got tripped up on a few.

LG (exp, I think): Stomped it.

LG (scored): Pretty sure I blew it (3+ wrong)

LR 2: Finished ten minutes early.I thought it was the easiest section of the test.

Can anyone confirm that the scored LG section had at the beginning a really long (text wise) game first?

Edit: I'm hoping for a 165+ but if the logic game section I bombed is the one I think I may be lucky for a 163.

Real games: Stain glass windows
Real RC: Dental decay
Real LR: Giant marine reptiles

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

^ Yeah, I had a bit of trouble with that section too. I knew it was real because of where it fell in the test though.

Yeah I had that for section 4 and the exp LG as section 3. I feel like I did well on the rest of the test but that LG section really hurt me. I was shooting for 165+ but now I think I'll be lucky to get a 163...

The hardest part of the LG was not having room to write on the two long games that were right next to each other. I couldn't just scribble on the next page, so after trying to write really tiny and failing, I finally just gave up and wrote my setups on the third page, which made me miss some stuff. Probably canceling.

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.

That LG... killed me. I usually get no more than -1 on LG, but I ran out of time for this one, and had to guess 3. SHIEEEEEEEET

Also I have a question about LR. Did a real LR section have questions that were like in the old format? I had a section where there were two questions for just one prompt. (Questions 5~6 on one prompt, 7~8 for one prompt.)

Overall...it was pretty freakin tough. I almost froze on logic games, but made a huge deduction (luckily) on the three harder problems which saved me. I felt like LR all around was a pain in the ass and a bit more difficult than last october or June Tests.

That logic game section was almost unfair. I can't believe how confusing and time consuming games 2 and 3 were.

I had three LR sections, and none that I recall had multi-questioned prompts

I had LR, RC, LR, LR(exp), LG. I usually do well on LG, but this one... this one was a fucked up one.

I though LR was easy until for like 17-21 it was really hard, then easy again.

The LG's total lack of room was rough, cost me a good 2-3mins

RC wasn't that bad until 1850's fiction

I had LR RC LR LR LG

idk which LR section was exp

was the LR with the parallel reasoning q exp or real?

same with me. I really think I did well on all the other sections but that LG was extremely brutal for me :( . I was also shooting for 170+ (got 165 in Oct) but within that LG, I could have gotten anywhere from 0-10 wrong :shock: . FML

LG and RC were brutal....I think that usually brings on a generous curve.

The 1st and 4th game were easy.
The 2nd game was very time consuming, with I think 7 questions and a read a rule incorrectly to make it worse.
The 3rd game on classes was very difficult.

I don't even know what hit me on the RC.

Took oct and june test and this one was harder.

LR were both easy to me

Hoping for higher then a 166

My order: LR(26 questions experimental) RC LR(25 questions) LR(26 questions) LG

The stained glass didn't bother me so much, it was the damned conference that got me.

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.
