Should I get that excited?

Postby Marie34 » Sun Sep 25, 2011 2:29 pm

Ok, so I've been studying for this test pretty consistently since January (I was originally going to take the June one), and I never really had a major score increase. My diagnostic was a 153 and up until about two months ago when I finally broke the 160 barrier. But this past month, I've seen pretty decent score increases. 163-165, and today I got a 169. Considering the 169 was an older test (#49), and since I've had such a hard time in the past, I have an extremely hard time believing I actually got a 169. Should I chalk this score up to luck, or should I get excited that I actually got it?

With a week left I'm trying to zone in specifically on my major flaws, and this 169 is kind of throwing me off a bit, and actually making me more nervous about taking the actual test come Saturday...

there are anomalies on BOTH SIDES, scoring higher than you will, or worse than you will. But it may just be you finally getting it, or it may just been a extra focused moment. It could've just been a test that played to your strengths.

Either way, use it for the last few days to get ready. You've proved you can get a 169, it's all about repeating it come Saturday.
