Should I withdraw or roll the dice

Postby Clearly » Sun Jun 10, 2012 8:55 pm

My goal is 174.

My last 2 PT's were 65 and 64 and I scored 173 and 172, but prior to this have been slumping a bit. What are the odds of not only matching my recent accomplishments, but surpassing them, if only by a little

This will be my second administration, meaning I could retake in Oct, but ONLY in Oct.
It's also worth noting that I almost never score less then -3 in LG, averaging about 4. Since apparently this is the easiest section to learn, many advice I continue studying. On the other hand, I'm not new to this, and while I don't doubt I could improve, I've put in serious work, including highly recommended programs, and still don't -0 sections often... I'm not of the mind that all people can master LG, and I'm not sure the wait till oct would produce significant gains at this point.

I vote take it. Especially since I'm posting this after the withdrawal deadline.

I vote take it but the odds of meeting your goal are pretty poor at this point. It's tough to hit your PT average under test day variables much less beat 2 scores that are admittedly anomalies over your recent PTs. Just do your best and if you need October so be it, kill it then!

Thanks for the encouragement on test day! I said I was slumping, not bombing, the lowest score in a month is 170. I took the 173 and 172 back to back in one sitting. I'm going to hit 174, and it'll be in 1 hour, not Oct! Also, as a retaker, I hit exactly my test day average last time, so I'm not worried about nerves.

BP, my thoughts exactly lol
