Anyway, I didn't necessarily find the questions to be too difficult, but the passages themselves were a little brutal. That, coupled with it being the last section, probably contributed to the unfortunate score.


This is exactly what happened to me. LR1 -1, LG -0, LR2 -6 RC -10... Le sigh...

I wouldn't worry so much about this one, though. It seemed uncharacteristically difficult.


Good too hear I wasn't the only one who had a rough time with this PT.

my RC usually goes -2. but I got -7 on 63!
in retrospect, the passages are not that difficult. but the first two passages are just dense the first time through it. ended up not having enough time and guessed on quite a few questions.

hope this one does not represent the difficulty level of RC in 60's!

took 64 yesterday and found RC64 much more difficult than 63 =/
Hoping 65 today is better... for me it really depends if there is any sciency passage where I can make up some time

IMO, 65 is the WORST EVER.

Somehow managed a -5 on 65 RC. The last passage is very difficult if you let yourself get bogged down in the content, which I did. I learned a good lesson though. On those ridiculous science passages, keep a birds eye view, try to find the MP of the passage and the purpose of each paragraph. The problem was that I got so bogged down when the questions wanted me to go back I had no idea what that paragraph was even about.
