I think you're talking about the prescriptive/descriptive language; that was a bitch because the perspectives were all jumbled together in the paragraphs. I think I had a few minutes at the end and legitimately could not figure out one of the questions because the passage was so confusing. Other two passages = easy.


UNESCO was fairly easy to read, passage B was especially straightforward, as you noted. However, I think two of the questions were really difficult. On RC the difficulty can lie in either the passage or the Q's. I don't know about prescriptivism/descriptivism, I feel like that one might vary a lot in difficulty depending on how familiar one is with that topic. Being a bit of a grammar/linguist nerd myself, I was really comfortable with all the points being made in the pasage.


Despite the fact the UNESCO was of different style than the usual, I also found it far easier to read (and quicker too!) than most RC passages. I had an experimental RC as well, and found the actual one to be easier. That being said, I'm not sure that I got the questions right per se.

I feel like at this point, I no longer have any idea whether I did well or not. I came out of the test thinking that things went well... But the longer time drags on, the lower I'm thinking that my score is.

If it makes you feel any better, I had the experimental RC too; the fact that it was first essentially let us get our jitters out of the way so we were on the ball when it actually mattered.

There have been threads more pointless than this one by leaps and bounds......very few things we could talk about would be more consequential than the curve

There hasn't been a -10 or less curve in a while. I would say -11 to -13 more likely.

A curve that you will never know. But if you want to engage in a frustrating and pointless exercise, go for it. I did the same thing last year when I took the Feb LSAT and wish I had those hours back.

understand you're point but the fact that we'll never know the curve doesn't make it any less significant......It exists and it helps determine our score, that we don't find out exactly what it is really doesn't matter.....
