3rd time retaker- i need advice

Postby enigmabk » Thu Nov 01, 2012 7:14 pm

hi everyone im a long time lurker
my history

feb 2012- cancel
june 2012- 163
october 2012- 161

i wasnt prepared for the feb test and canceled. for the june test, i drilled 40 pts from february to june and averaged around 171 in my pts. i felt confident going into junes exam. however, during the june test i got extremely nervous and blanked out and got a dismal score. (most of the misakes were fucking STUPID fwiw, got the hard q's correct)
for octobers test, i didnt do much except the month before the test, i did around 15 pts, averaging low 170s. my best friend died a week before the october exam (i cant tell if this affected my performance, i was blocking a lot of emotions out during that period). i walked out of october thinking theres no way i scored below 163 but you know the story.

i think that i might have a severe case of testing anxiety, i shouldnt be scoring 10 points below my pt, ive been studying for almost a year now and this process is taxing.

when is the next test i can take? anyone else have or know someone who's had a similar experience to mine? should i just go into a school like loyola or pepperdine (im from l.a.)

feeling pretty fucking hopeless at this point, any feedback is appreciated

The next test you can take is in 2014.

Edit: If you sat in for Feb, then next test is Feb 2014.
If you canceled prior to taking the Feb test and never actually sat in, then you can take December 2012.
