Paranoia about misbubbling

Postby Helicio » Tue Jun 19, 2012 4:19 pm

I have absolutely no reason to think I misbubbled in June but this doubt keeps coming up persistently. Is this happening to anyone else?

Any way we can rationalize that the likelihood of misbubbling is probably pretty small?

If you're worried, request a hand-grading. They've been known to adjust for obvious mis-bubbling.

Can we request this now or do we have to wait after we get the score? I might just do it now lol

Not sure, but I think you can request it before score release. It will delay your score a bit.

I'll probably wait then and see if anything seems to be up. We can tell on our own with the PDFs and such, or am I wrong?

You don't need that. Just forget about the LSAT for the next few weeks and enjoy your summer.

I found a thousand things to worry about, none of it came true. It really helps to have some project or work to focus on.

I think I'll continue to work on the first draft of my PS to take my mind off LSAT. Any takers for helping me edit the first draft? :)

Had it not been for my lovely fire alarm I would probably be basking in paranoia with you, Helicio.

I had a small misbubbling error on the exam. I had never ever done that before on PTs. Fortunately, I recognized right away that I had skipped a question and fixed it quickly.

This post is about misbubbling, a fear many people have. When others make posts about what they will be eating on LSAT test day and such, I dunno how you came to this conclusion.

Justify the Conclusion for me?

You should, once finished with a section, quickly go over the test to make sure you bubbled it correctly. I did this and I haven't the slightest worry that I misbubbled.

The only cases I've heard of hand grading having any benefit is if say you did very well on 3 sections and on the fourth section you missed like 19 in a row, yet moving all of the answers up one row would result in missing only one or whatnot. In other words it has to be pretty damn clear you screwed an entire section and not that you just accidentally bubbled the wrong answer a couple of times.

LSAC would give you the higher score in the case bolded if you asked for hand grading? I find that incredible.

I don't think this is right. I thought hand grading was more for bubbles that were half filled or what not.
I'm probably going to have to get mine hand graded. I kept scribbling in some change as the proctor called TIME, scaring me half to death, pencil going everywhere.

Yeah I am worried about the same thing. Like, I am not worried that I bubbled for the wrong questions, just that I didn't fill in the circles enough and such.

So I'll wait for my score then request a hand grading if something seems wrong.

I also am worried that since I bubbled in the answer sheet while it was sitting on my test booklet, the circles won't be dark enough.

I've seen multiple people over the years claim that happened, but again it would have to be so painstakingly obvious and even then probably isn't a sure thing.

As for the like half bubbling deal, I think we would all be surprised at how good of a job the machines do. I would only worry about it if you erased a lot and had a really really shitty eraser. If you get your results back and the sheet says you marked something down, I'd be almost certain that is what you marked down.
