Experimental Questions

Postby Clearly » Tue Apr 10, 2012 2:20 am

I'm wondering (just out of curiosity) about the process time etc for questions from the experimental section. I'm registered for a June retake, after taking the previous undisclosed February test. Has anyone seen a question on a retake that they first encountered as an experimental question in a previous administration? I assume they have thought this out, and shift questions geographically to avoid this occurring, but even that doesn't rule out people who may have moved etc. How long are experimental questions sat on before reappearing (if qualified) in an actual section? Next administration? 2 years later? 5 years? Anyone know the process these questions go through specifically?

To clarify, I'm not planing on 'studying' old experimental sections, or trying to recall (which I do) the articles used in my experimental, etc... It's just a genuine curiosity of mine.

Ha, I'm shocked no one has answered this yet, people usually rattle off ten replies before I blink, I found it an interesting enough notion for discussion, I genuinely think very few people have reliable information on the process... I was curious is any repeaters ever saw an experimental question later as a real question.

I remember people in our Feb waiting thread saying they'd found an old waiting thread where our LG section had been the experimental. I didn't see it when I searched the forums, so no idea how far back it was...

I know the RC passages from my June 2011 administration showed up as an experimental in 2009. But since those questions aren't released you'd have to remember them for two years, which is basically impossible.

I also don't know how shifting questions geographically happens, since everyone takes the same 4 real sections.
