Predicting my FEB LSAT score with all my PT test scores.

Postby RodionRaskolnikov » Wed Feb 22, 2012 2:26 pm

Like the majority of LSAT takers, I'm not really good at games so that's the section that trips me up. The following are my scores on all the PT I've taken before. If there is an asterisk next to it (*), it means I took more time to complete it than allowed. The first number is how many I got wrong, and the second is the 170 curve, and the third is how many quetions away I was to 170.

PT 7. -29 (-15) -14 160
PT 9. -30 (-15) -15 161
PT 10. -26 (-11) -15 160
PT 11. -22 (-11) -11 162
PT 12. -10 (-9) * -1 169*
PT 13. -15 (-14) * -1 169*
PT 15. -14 (-9) * -5 166*
PT 17. -12 (-14) +2 172* extra 5 minutes on 2 sections
PT 18. -18 (-13) -5 167
PT 29. -10 ( -12) * +2 172*
PT 30. -19 (-14) -5 167
PT 31. -23 (-14) -9 163
PT 32. -13 (-14) +1 171 got lucky bc the games were easier I think
PT 33. -27 (-14) -13 161 The games came back with a vengence :(
PT 34. -21 (-13) -8 164
PT 35. -16 ( -12) -4 167
PT 36. -16 (-12) -4 167
PT 37. -15 (-10) -5 166
PT 38. -23 (-12) -11 162 slaughtered by games
PT 52. -14 ( -10) -4 166
PT 53. -13 (-11) -2 168 so close!
PT 54. -18 (-10) -8 163
PT 55. -11 (-9) -2 168 so close!
PT 56. -14 (-9) -5 167 games owned me
PT 61 -15 (-12) -3 167 so close! day before the test (-5 games, -4 reading, -6 LR).

On the FEB LSAT, I thought that the games were easy. I finished them in time and looked over one problem but I'm not 100% sure if they're all right. The LR I thought wasn't too bad. I had extra time on one to check the two I thought I had trouble with and finished on time (with a minute extra) with the other, allegedly non-experimental one. The allegedly experimetal one (2nd in LR order) I had extra 3 minutes. So LR wasn't too bad. The reading was a bit more difficult. I finished with ~3 minutes extra looked over a bit but I don't think I did my best on reading - definitely could have done better.

From the scores I put up before, it seems like I've gotten better than when I started, from about 20+ wrong to about 13 or 14. I got 170+ twice (PT 29 and 32). On the first one, I took a bit extra time and on the second one I finished in time. I've also gotten close during the end with about ~3 questions away from a 170..

I'm predicting I get a 167. But, I'm hoping that since I had extra time in some sections and since the games were easy, sort of like the test where I got a 170+, I hope to get 169 or even 170.. But based on previous scores, it's unlikely.

What do you think?

I'm not obsessing over my score. I already know I plan on retaking the test. I just thought it would be fun to predict based on previous numbers, sort of like a game.

Why in the world would you take a practice test the day before the actual LSAT?

Not really anything wrong with this. I did and greatly outperformed my average, which made me really confident for the real thing.

I would actually recommend taking a PT the day before the real thing just to get into the right mindset, or to not break the cycle if you've been taking it everyday for a week leading up to the real thing.

Probably below 150.

Your anal retentiveness and psychoneurosis probably crippled you on test day.

All kidding aside, your post seems borderline psychotic.


The best way to improve isn't to just take practice tests, but to analyze your previous scores, what you got wrong, why, and how you can avoid making the same mistakes. I made the table to analyze my previous scores and see the big picture so I can improve. What is wrong with that?

Because it is better to take a practice test before the exam than to not take one. It's a myth people have that taking the practice test will exhaust you for the real thing if you take it the day before. In reality, it keeps your mind sharp and on LSAT mode so when you come to the test center 35 min early and run through a practice reading comp, a few LR questions and a game, it doesn't take your brain too long to get into its top LSAT mode and fully prepare itself for the real test.

I didn't mean it as a game game. I meant it was interesting and fun (sort of like a game) for me since I like crunching numbers from time to time. And if you don't analyze your own work, your improvement is going to be very limited.

It looks like you improved at games a lot. How did you prep? The Feb games owned me unfortunately. I'm waiting for my score too but I kinda feel like I'm going to have to re-take because of the game section, and RC was pretty tough too.

I don't know if this is the same for you but the biggest problem I had with games was the intimidation. I thought I would fail at the games so I did. If I took my time, I noticed that I could do the games fairly easily. But, I went through the Powerscore books for each section, then got all the PTs and started doing them. The first few were timed and I did poorly. Then I decided to just take my time and go through every question of every section without pressure so I see how the test works. I did that for a few tests as you can notice. Then I went back to timed and just kept taking tests over and over until the amount of questions I got wrong went down to like ~13. For the games, in particular, I think all you have to do is take them over and over. I didn't really change my way of attack I learned from Powerscore. I just got the hang of them the more I did them and when the test came, I flew through them and was surprised that I had extra time at the end. But, everything's a blur now so I can't even remember if I answered them feeling like they're 100% right or just answered them the best I could. If it's like the last few practice tests where I flew through them, then I should only miss about 3 max.

When I start to study again for the June, I'm going to go through all the PTs I took, see which answers I got wrong, why I got them wrong, and note them. Then retake the practice tests with extra emphasis on the types of questions I usually get wrong.

OP, your avatar is extremely fitting for the type of person who would make this thread. I would wager you have a few punny t-shirts in your closet. Am I right?

It would be useful if you actually put the scores for each test for those who haven't memorized the curves.

PS, I really liked Crime and Punishment.

More useful than the number wrong and curve would've been the score itself, I think. I'm gonna grant you a 163.
