Who else got OWNED by LR2?

Postby justbubbles » Mon Jun 27, 2011 8:11 pm

LR1, LG and hell even RC with that Kate Chopin crap I did pretty good in.

LR2 PWN3D me! :cry: This is the only thing that dragged my score down.

Am I the only one here who got raped by LR2?

I got owned very unexpectedly. -5 on that section. I thought it was easy when I was doing it on Test Day. That's what scares me about the test... I did well in RC despite thinking I bombed it, but totally failed on LR without realizing it

Same here. Though LR was not bad. even finished with 5+ minutes to spare on both sections and did review. But I did the worst in LR.

For the most recent exams, I tend to get -1/-2. Worse is -3. Don't know what happened with this exam.

Yeh, same here. After doing quite a few PTs with -2 to -7 at most on a bad day, I was rather confident with LR. But that backfired.

I too thought I bombed RC but I guess a couple of guesses worked out in my favour. LR2 was brutal.

Yeah, I'm wondering if it was just a tricky LR or if I was going too fast. Gotta work on my pacing/accuracy for October

It's the nature of the beast, for me in was LG -6, I still wound up with a 170, but I can imagine the possibilities if I didn't bomb that one section. I'm not retaking anyways.

It was my worst section. During the test I was scrambling to answer Qs, and was way off the 15Qs in 15 min. pace I usually have on LR.

-6 LR2. Equal to the amount missed in RC, LR1, and LG combined. Mutter.

It was surprisingly my worst section, I wasn't expecting that, but luckily the other ones balanced it out.

Funny how right after the test the unanimous consensus was that RC was the killer. :lol:

But now after we get our scores back, we see that it's LR2. :cry:

LR 1 -3
LR 2 -9

How is that possible!?!

My Octoberfest is going to consist of a marathon of practice tests. FML.

I went -3 and -2 on LR respectively. Not great for me, but not out of norms. I fucked up LG. I normally go 0, thought I nailed it, and somehow went -4. -2 on RC (-1 on seal pelts and -1 on KC; rocked magnets which literally blows my mind!i wasted so much time on that passage.)

More or less the same here. My LR2 was a -9 while LG was a -0. Ouch.

I hated going through it, and thought I totally bombed it. I mean, every other question I struggled to put down an answer...there were four or five bubbles that I had zero confidence in.

Fast forward to today, and it was, against all odds, my best section. No idea how that happened, but I'm thanking the Gods of pretty much every creed. Jesus, Allah, Krishnu, Zeus, Odin...thank you.

Congrats, PSUdevon. I feel like LR2 (my fifth section) singlehandedly took me from 175 to 169.

That would be me, except in my case it was the RC (-6).

Seconded. Congrats, PSUdevon!

I agree with Kurst. LR2 destroyed my entire score. For me, it probably took me from a 177/178 to 169 given that I had -9 on the LR2 alone. :cry:

-0 on LG, but it is of little or no solace given that I got pounded on LR2. :(

I missed as many questions in LR2 than in the entire rest of the test combined....kind of a bummer. Clearly the fatigue set in and hit me hard. In LR1 I was only -2...unheard of for LR for me!

THIS HAPPENED TO ME AS WELL. I had LR 1: -2; LG: -1; LR 2: -2 going into the RC passage. On this test that was equivalent to a 175. And I'll admit, maybe I could've gotten 2 of those LR misses back, so it wasn't like I was perfect, but I was still well on my way to a 170+ considering that I almost never miss more than 2 on any RC section. Then I got taken for a ride by RC (I spent so much time on Kate Chopin and the fucking sea floor geology passages that I had to do that last passage in 3.5 minutes.) RC: -7. Score: 169. UGH. Did anyone else think the RC was way harder than the overall curve would suggest? I thought it was worse than December's and that was at least -14 (although I guess there are other things than RC that contribute to the overall curve).

EDITED: Ugh, RC fail here too. I know this is predominantly about LR2, but the RC was my 5th section as well, jeninamillion and Kurst.

LR2 Was extremely hard imo. Even the first 10 questions, which are usually very easy, ended up being time consuming. The fact that I got rushed ended up costing me big time. Almost want to retake because I feel like it was a bit of a fluke but I don't have time.
LR1: -1, LG: -0 LR2: -5 RC: -1
