I'm almost positive that I had three 25q LR sections. Never saw a 26q LR. I was looking for it because I thought it might give a clue but no such luck. Therefore, is it possible that the 26q LR section was the experimental? I don't really remember any of the questions, at least I hope we can agree that LGs sucked.

It was so rough. RC is usually my best, but this one absolutely destroyed me. I kept hoping it was experimental, but I almost cried when I saw my 3rd LR in section 4.
I haven't had to guess on RC in so long, so it was really disheartening to have to do it on a couple in there. Ughhh.


I felt the same way. Then I got stumped on a game at the beginning of the section and I panicked. I had to guess all of the questions for the last game just to finish the section. UGH.

I was so confident that the second RC I had was the experimental. ugggh FML FML FML

I am one of you.

Quick thoughts:

1. Very easy first LR. I finished with a solid ten minutes to spare. I want that one to count, especially since the final LR was, as people are saying, "weird."
2. I was shaky on RC. I could be anywhere from -2 to -8 on that section.
3. Suspiciously easy LG. I usually guess on four or five, today I guessed on only one. Even after repeatedly slowing down to check my answers. (I rushed through LG in June and fell on my face.)

Overall, I feel much better than I did walking out of the test in June. As long as my losses in RC are limited and I didn't make some terrible awful mistake on LG, things should turn out fine.

Do you remember if that problem was in your first or third section?

It seems from the other boards that each experimental section (LG, LR, RC) was split 50/50 between the first and third section.

I'm assuming us with 25/25/25 LR had our experimental section third since the people with 26 questions in one section, had 26/25/25.

I'm super bummed about this...


It was in the third section, as in of sections 1,3,and 4, it was section 3 not 4. This is getting really confusing. Does that mean my exp was the first section? cause that would make my day just marginally better than right now.. although i don't think it could have gotten any worse in the first place.

Crap, is this verifiable? I had the 25/25/25 lr and nerves killed me on the first LR and I destroyed the 3rd one.

Honestly can't remember the questions, but I'm hoping the 3rd LR was experimental. Agreed it felt very wierd.

Well people who had RC experimental are saying that they had different passages about different content in their experimental section; i.e. people with a passage about german/spanish speakers had their ex.section first, and those that didn't had their's third.

So basically just bc you have the same ex section as someone doesn't mean it was in the same section order as them. Does that make sense?

I hoooppppe to god the people with 25/25/25 had their experimental section first because seriously, same thing. I usually do -3, but nerves combined with what seemed like a difficult section made me guess on the about six. And I killed the third section. So I hope hope hope you're right with that verification about the third section being the one with dosage/drinks.

Ahh, I thought I was safe that for the 25(1)/25(3)/25(4) LR'ers, the experimental was the first one. Everyone seems confused at this point

I mean, apparently the third section according to ...dude up there, says that s/he verified that section three was real via the dosage/drink problem. so. If he's correct then yeah, first would have been experimental for the 25/25/25ers

LG kicked my ass. I blanked on the first game, skipped it. Aced #2, and #3. #4 took up so much of my time and I still ended up guessing on 2. Yep, probably somewhere around a -8 for me on LG. *sigh*

December re-take, here I come ...

I think he is saying that section three was real, and that section four (the third LR) may not be.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Didnt sleep a wink last night and the brain just ain't flowing.

Also, shouldn't we get some kind of reward for completing 3 of the most draining section?

Same 100%. Here's to hoping for the best for both of us.

hey guys....
i was a LR experimental 25-25-25.... i think the first one was exp. cuz i bombed it and i normally do pretty well....

to those who DID NOT HAVE LR experimental, do you guys remember questions on - drinking alcohol and exercising more, high cost couch/sofa, dispute about murder mystery movie....? thanks guys...... these were in LR sections 2+3 for me....so lets hope you guys remember!!

They really messed with us...they gave us two different experimentals. Oh we'll, hope the first one was exp for those of us that didn't have a 26question experimental.

I saw the same post, I think. That person took the test abroad, or at least in Canada iirc. I think they had 3/4 of the real passages in one RC and 1/4 real passages in the xRC. But they could have misremembered.

I had this ordering of sections as well.

I think my "suspects" LR section was 3rd, and I'm HOPING that was the experimental because that section seemed very strange to me, wasn't sure about a lot of my answers. Apparently this section is real though and for people who had it third the first LR section is exp? That would suck because I feel like I cruuushed the first section.

Are you positive all of those weren't in either the second or the third (rather than at least one of those being in both?)
