How sad is that?
Seriously though, I would try to see this in a positive way. You have conquered LG. RC is still an issue, but it's not awful. Really all about LR now- and PT 70 was a pretty tough LR test. Drill the shit out of LR- learn the concepts over and over. Your RC may improve somewhat with that too.
Once you've conquered LR- which is so very conquerable- you will be looking at scores in the top couple percentiles.
I'm also in the same boat. I just re-did my questions I got wrong and its irksome that I was able to get most of them right.
Either way, is 1 month enough time to make improvement in LR? It's not that I don't KNOW this stuff, but for whatever reason (nerves? fatigue?) I didn't execute on game day for LR.
TBH it doesn't seem like you need 1 month to "make improvement in LR" as much as to find a way to conquer those nerves.
I took 69 in June. Was PTing in the upper 170's consistently. Had the same issue- but with LG. I KNEW the stuff- but couldn't execute on game day. I took a month off and reflected- and realized that being ridiculous with my diet, and telling everyone how seriously I was taking this- and limiting my social life- etc. etc., was hurting me. More was less. I psyched myself out, and it sounds like you did this time.
So I took some time off after June, and then got back into it. I PTed- but only one or two a week. I drilled- but not every day. And I went out with friends and did whatever I could to not psyche myself out. I went into October with a far more relaxed and clearer mindset, even though I had done less studying immediately beforehand than I had for June. And it paid off-- I didn't do perfectly, and could have done better, but my score was what I needed, and I got a 0 on LG, which is what I had struggled with in June.
So if you scored sub-170, would def. recommend a retake... but less is more here. Hope this helps a bit.
