October 2012, London

Postby jenlt » Sat Oct 06, 2012 3:58 pm

Did anyone else take the LSAT in London today? I felt pretty good walking out, which leads me to believe that I probably did bad. It felt pretty standard difficulty wise.

My test was LR-RC-LR-LR-LG.

Any one with a non-LR experimental remember anything about the scored LR's?

1st and 2nd LR were scored, 3rd was experimental. Apparently this is an old undisclosed test.

That's unfortunate. I didn't feel like the second LR was particularly hard but for some reason it took me a lot longer that usual. Do you happen to know which one it was? I want to see some other reactions.

We had the zoning game everyone else is talking about. I think the second lR was the exp. b/c it felt kind of weird + some awkward repetition of questions. Do you recall any of the RC topics?

Music to my ears on the 2nd LR! For RC I remember topics on forged paintings and early hominids but have forgotten the others.

Others apparently had a brutal RC passage in addition to the brutal zoning game we had. I guess/hope we got lucky...

I don't recall any section being particularly brutal. I also don't even remember this zoning game everyone is talking about. I don't know if thats a good or bad thing. I think its safe to say that the US test takers had it worse.

The zoning game was 4th and it was pretty brutal. I'm assuming you rocked it if you don't remember it because I could only think about zones since we turned in our test booklets and starting the WS...

I honestly don't think I could have rocked it from the way it sounds. Was LG your experimental? For games I had one with professors and subjects, one where there were two groups (East and West?) where you had to put things (movies or airplanes?) in order, and i think the other 2 were ordering? As you can tell from my descriptions, my brain is fried.

I had those games too, but I honestly don't remember the zoning one, and I don't remember the fourth game being that difficult... But to qualify that, I did have 12-15 mins on the last game. But it might also be possible that we had a different game section than test-takers in the States.

Hey, All! Super glad to see this thread started: seems we have a lot of non-U.S. LSAT takers this year and this will be very helpful. Just want to remind everyone, NO SPECIFIC discussions of the questions. That is, it's fine to name the games ("Zoning"), but it's NOT FINE to say, "that circular game" or ask, "Was B the right answer for question 3?" CONGRATULATIONS to all of you - finishing the test is a big accomplishment!

I had an extra LR. I believe it was the 2nd one (which was 3rd section), I felt like there were alot ofthe same types of questions which i thought was unusual. Though someone said it was the 3rd LR so i really dont know.

I didn't take it in London, but did take it in Europe.

Mine was LR RC LR LR LG

I didn't have the zoning game in LG, but I do remember the aforementioned Painting Forgery and Early Homnids RC topics.

Any idea if our scores will be based on the initial scale of this particular test or if our score will be based on the scale of the test taken by the US candidates?

Thanks

I took the test last Saturday in London, my lineup was RC-LR-RC-LG-LR

Does anyone here who took the London test with a LR/LG experimental remember their RC topics? One of my RC sections was abnormally difficult while the other was fine. Specifically, does anyone remember the W.E.B Du Bois / Langston Hughes section?

I remember early hominids and painting forgeries but I can't recall either of the topics you mentioned. Do you remember any of your LR topics?

Hah, I also remember those passages but for the life of me I can't place them in first or third test section, so I still don't know which was experimental! I also remember one comparative about invasive plant species, one about artificial intelligence/the human mind, and one about comparative of history and general principles. But, again, I can't remember which section they were on! The only one I remember for sure being section three was a passage comparing Hughes and Du Bois (was one passage not two).

I do remember one LR question regarding constitutions and governments near the end of my last section. Otherwise I would need some prompting I think...

Do we know how our score will be calculated?

Assuming that we took previously undisclosed tests, will our score be based on the score range for that initial test, or based on the scores of the people who took the test on last Saturday?

Do you happen to remember if you had a 26 question LR? Or one about running shoes/running bare foot?

I don't know if it helps but I'm pretty sure the real comparative RC was about the forgery of paintings, but I can't recall any of the other topics you mentioned.

I read in another thread that someone talked to LSAC and they said all of the curves will be the same as the curve for the test administered in the US.

Yes I definitely had a 26 question LR.

Does anyone remember if they found the RC especially difficult relative to their practice tests? My first section was much more difficult...

I thought the first three games weren't bad, as I had about 11 mins left for the last game. However, for some reason, I remember having to guess a few on the last game. Maybe I just blanked or something. LG was my last section and I was pretty beat by that point.

I felt the first two games were easy, almost too simple. I kept checking my work making sure I hadn't misread something. The last two were harder in my opinion. I was running low on time for the last one.
