Is it 100% certain that exper. section is before the break?

Postby darkatillam2 » Mon Jun 06, 2011 8:58 pm

Please tell me no :(


I had two RC passages. The one I did before the break I felt I did really well on. The last RC (Kate Chopin) literally destroyed me. Utterly and completely. I suspect I missed at LEAST 10 questions.

I'm thinking about cancelling. I am aiming for a 165 (trying to get into UC Davis or Hastings), and with that horrible section I don't think I can even come close to that.

LG was simple. Prob -1 if I'm unlucky. First LR was rough (so nervous I couldn't think about not having to go pee), my 2nd LR section went well I think.

What do I do? Oh yea, I will be retaking 100%. Now it's just whether or not I cancel.

So what do I do now?

Take a score or cancel?


I'm a splitter looking at T20-T40.

By my math, I'm probably looking at around -25.

(rough LR -5 to -8), (awesome LG -0 or -1), (decent LR -3 to -6), (balls in my mouth RC -10 to -15)

Why god did the first RC not count :( :( Prob would have gone between -2 to -4 max

If you'll be retaking and you're certain it's going to be that bad, cancel. It's not worth it to have such a bad score on your record if you'll be retaking anyway.

Splitter, looking at that range, I would consider cancelling. I don't think the curve is going to be especially kind for this exam. The LR were easy or par, the LG par to slightly above and the RC a doozy for some. Given those numbers, I would guess that if you missed 25, that would put you in the 160 range.

I'm nervous about putting all my eggs in one basket. If for some stupid reason I get sick or something happens in Oct I'm totally out of luck (don't wanna do Dec, way too late in cycle).


Do you think two scores will make a huge difference for me (being that I'm looking at T20+)?

Man I'm in the EXACT same boat as you.... had the EXACT test as you today and felt almost the same on it(RC1 >RC2) except for the logic games, I was running low on time and misinterpreted a rule from the Ball game...



Honestly, I'm in the same position as you--going to take it again in October--but deciding whether or not to cancel this...



I don't think I have the balls to cancel this exam... I can't live with myself not knowing what i got right/what I got wrong. :(


I would just stick with whatever you got, because thats what I plan on doing too. I was under the impression it doesn't really matter what you got on your earlier tests as most schools just take the highest one... I sure hope so at least.

We may get the same book. The second RC was my last section. Probably -12 to -7. The other parts were fairly easy. -0 to -5(if really bad luck) in total. My aim is 170+. Cancel? or Not?

Minus 10 may be the curve for a score of 170 based on a seven year average of past June tests.
