I know its undisclosed, but for people who sat for Feb, it might give them an idea of where they stand.

Goodluck to everyone!

How in gods name is blindly guessing at what the curve is going to help people get an idea of where they stand. All its going to do is make you hooligans even more anxious

Okay, I'll bite. I'll say that it felt like a -10. I guessed the curve of the last two LSATs correctly. Should've put money on it.

If we're going off people's reactions to the test, then imho it seems like reactions to this test are only slightly better than reactions to December. The negative reactions in December were directed at a particular game and the negative reactions here are directed towards the overall time crunch of the games and the odd RC passage. Granted, a hard game could throw people off more than a games section that was merely time consuming, but coupled with a tougher RC section, a time consuming games section could have a relatively similar effect on the curve. With that said, I still don't think it's gonna be -14. But -12 seems very possible. That's the best unverifiable logic I can come up with.

Personally kind of surprised at the number of -12s out here. It seemed to me to be easy enough to warrant a -10 (not that I think I necessarily did that well... I just feel that mistakes made were mainly careless..)

Although, I would welcome the -12. Hell, I'm welcoming a -14. Please.

I agree that it seemed easy, especially LR. RC wasn't really difficult compared to other tests. Games was more time consuming than a lot of tests, but no games were particularly more difficult. However, I can't necessarily trust my experience more than the opinions people are putting out about this test because in my case (and I feel like this is probably the case for you too) I don't find difficult tests to be particularly difficult and also easier tests are also only slightly easier than harder tests. So when I think it was around a -10 it usually turns out to be a little more generous. It seems though that when a curve is around -10 it's because there wasn't really any section that was more difficult than normal, and on this test a lot of people are saying that either RC or LR or both were more difficult for them. That's the only reason for my -12 opinion.

We need someone to break the tie between -11 and -12!

yes, -12 takes the lead. Please let it be -12 and not -11.

Are the tests trending closer to -12 curve now?

Seeing how in recent LSAT history, most of the tests have been -11 curve or higher, I am going with -12 or -13. I voted for -13 though. Like I said, when something unprecedented happens on the LSAT, the curve usually reflects it. The unprecedented thing this time was the UNESCO passage. If not a -13, it should be a -12. I would put money on it if we could actually see the curve for the test.

That's not true. When they added in the comparative reading the curve was -8 or something crazy like that.

I hope it's a -11 or higher curve.

Does anyone know the purpose of the test being undisclosed? You would think they would at least give us the scale vs raw score chart

I believe it's because bits and pieces of the February test are resused in other administrations years down the line, so they have to be super secretive about not only the content of the test but also how certain parts may have affected a test takers performance.
