I took October before cancelling and as a general rule, everyone thought it was fairly easy. I predicted a -9 curve and was obviously wrong, but I wasn't too far from the consensus of around -11 then. Hardly anyone was saying -14 for October. About as many people saying -16 for December, I guess.
And yes, I probably should have just kept my October score. I felt inadequately prepared for LG, but went -0, -1, -0 on LR LR RC as it turns out. I knew I had a lot of trouble with LG and that's why I cancelled to study... but then the December LG was so much harder than October that it probably didn't help me at all. Whoops!
As people kept saying after the October test (again, perceived to be easy at the time) the trend lately has been for hard tests in June and December then easy tests in February and October. Hopefully PS 63 keeps to this trend.
