LR-RC-LR-LR-LG

LR1 - 26 - started strong, got tough towards the end. the battle just beginning
RC - blanked out during the 1st passage but questions were easy. owned the comparative passage. blanked out for the bebop.
LR2 - 25 - very easy.
LR3 - 25 - easy, but more tough than LR2
LG - nothin too tough here at all. feel like i went perfect. 1 easy game. 3 medium games.

curve -11ish


Bebop was pretty tough, I thought.

Also, is it the case that there's only 1 experimental section that everyone takes for each type of section? Meaning, did everyone who took an experimental LR section take the same section I took? Or can there be multiple experimental sections for a given type of section?

It was very manageable, but one thing we have to remember is that we can't infer the effect a given section will have on the scale from our own personal opinions of the difficulty of the section. I think that last game gave enough people trouble to make LG harder than a really easy LG section. Games 2 and 3 weren't TOTALLY easy, either, though they were both very manageable.


-1. I have done LG's in all test from the mid 20's to present date. The LG's today were insanely easy (relatively speaking).

This same person, though, said that this "hard" section was not the section he suspected of being experimental. What's the reason behind this? Very disheartening over here, since I'm sure I bombed that section. Couldn't make heads or tails of it.

Couple guys were talking about it, one of them wrote two LRs, and specifically did not remember two questions from the third LR I wrote. Both were complaining about what I guess to be the first, unusually difficult one.

Lol, I would really like to agree with the people voting -12, but I just don't see it. Not saying it's impossible, but I really, really don't think so. I voted -10.

Checking in.

LR1: 26
RC: 27
LR2: 25
LR3: 25
LG: Can't remember!

I did not feel confident on any LR section. It's all kind of blur there.
RC felt normal. The science passage (the last one for me) was rough!
LG: messed up setting up the last game, but was able to spot the mistakes quickly enough to finish strong. LG was probably easier than usual.

Somebody start a chat!

I had a brutal -10 for the June administration. Hoping I don't catch that bad luck again. -11

My worst section has typically been LG- I finished with around 3 minutes to spare feeling fairly confident that I went 0/-2 so I think it must have been dead easy!

I think LR (26) may have been harder than I thought. Was unable to go 15 in 15, but I attributed it to nerves more than anything. Still confident that I did quite well on it luckily.

Okay. That makes sense. The last PT I took was 65, and it was the standard "diagram in the margins" bs.

Any speculation about which LR was experimental? I feel like my 3rd one (section 4) was awful -- I ran out of time and had to guess on several at the end, which never happens for me on LR. My 1st LR (26) was tough/average and my 2nd LR (25) was extremely easy (compared to the others, at least).

Same here. CristopherG above was speculating that the hardest LR section for him, which was also 4th for him, was not experimental. I hope to hell that isn't correct. Since I also had my hardest 4th, and I'm sure I bombed it.

If you had LR - RC - LR - LR - LG, I'm also pretty sure at this point #4 was experimental, assuming our LR were the same.

Yeah, the games section is typically my weakest section as well. Not today! I zipped through the real and experimental games with no problem. I even had time to go back and check some of my work because the answers were coming so easily. I literally said to the guy next to me, "what is this shit?"

Yes, I had LR-RC-LR-LR-LG. Bjorn, I read back to what CristopherG said and he thought the 4th was the experimental based on bathroom talk, but that the 1st was the hardest for him. So maybe he just got an easier experimental than us for the 4th section, but found LR1 to be relatively difficult (fingers crossed!)

I have a feeling the 2nd LR might be the experimental since it was so easy. Praying it's not though. I thought the 1st LR was more difficult than the 3rd (finished early). I ran out of time on the 1st and had to guess for a few. It could have been difficulty level or sleepiness haha.

The one with 26 questions counted. And for 25, if you remember something about an Airline Manager, that was real as well.

Are the people voting -7 serious or just being assholes? I'll be the first to say I think we're looking at a tight curve, but -7 is an absurd projection. Range is definitely -9 to -12, 10 and 11 being the most likely, with 10 more likely than 11.
