Misbubbling a section

Postby whatisthewhat » Mon Oct 08, 2012 9:47 pm

I have this really paranoid fear that I misbubbled a section, as I read some peeps talking about Q15 in LG and I remember bubbling Q16 for that question (sorry, I know).

Does anyone know if there's recourse when this happens? I've done a little Googling, but the results were spotty. Thanks so much in advance for any help.

you can request for a hand scoring if you think there's a bubbling error

I was afraid this was only for if the machine misread your answer sheet? If your answer sheet is wrong, I was worried this might not apply.

I actually did misbubble the second half of LG by starting a number too low after Game 2. This made for a dirty scantron and less time than I would have liked for game 1. Does anyone know if there can be a misread if u lightly mark a question # on the scantron? I am not sure if I erased one of those marks for an LR question

I misbubbled in June. I filled in the answer for the last question in the second to last answer space. LSAC told me that hand scoring only corrects if the machine misreads it. There wasn't anything they could do about it.

Misbubbled on a Preptest this past weekend... Was horrified by the score I got; then I corrected it; then I was horrified by what I did...

Thanks, all. Hopefully/sort-of sounds like this might be a case by case sort of thing?

I hope everyone is fine on this for this go-round. Neurotic but good vibes coming your way.
