RCe (PT21 S4): -3
I got a little ambitious and decided to try a very recent PT. Again, I probably shouldn't have since I wasn't at my best today (though in the later sections I was back at 100%), but I decided on this yesterday (when my confidence was sky-high) and once I wrote down the PT number on the answer sheet, there was no going back.
After I scored LG, I got my hopes up about pulling off 175. (I have a bad habit of thoroughly studying the conversion scale before grading the exam, and sometimes before even taking the exam.) I knew I'd have to get -0 in LR2 but I thought it might be possible since I felt very good about LR2. But it turns out I made a mistake in a Q I'd thought was a lay-up. Oh well. I hate it when I lose two scaled points on one Q, but that's how it is.
I knew I sucked in LR1, and getting sick is definitely part of it, but there's no excuse for some of the mistakes I made in that section. I might be feeling under the weather in June, too--I expect myself to perform well under any circumstances, even as I cut myself some slack now so I don't aggravate my health. (Sounds dramatic, but it's really not a big deal--I'm guessing a light cold at worst, most likely nothing if I get 10 hours of sleep tonight.
) The extra break after S2 (which obviously won't be granted on the real test) helped me regroup and excel in LG and LR2. Not so much in RCe, but hey, for me, -3 RC is nothing to be ashamed of.
I'm happy that my streak of getting no more than 2 Qs wrong in recent RCs remains intact.
That's the end of prep for me this week--I'll be back on Monday. Good luck, and let's kill it in a month!
EDIT: the composite scores from the previous four tests' experimentals:
LG (5/2): -0
LR1 (5/3): -0
LR2 (5/5): -1
RC (5/6): -3
I underperformed on the first two PTs I used exclusively as experimentals (29, 30); however, since then, I've overperformed on the three next experimental PTs (39, 41, 21). I'm not sure what to make of it, though I'm happy with any upward trend.
EDIT again: I now have 15 PTs left.
EDIT 3: Mean RC score down to -3.02. Wait, what?!? When did that happen? What about all those -5s and -7s I got? Must be something wrong with the spreadsheet.
