LR-RC-LG-LR-RC.

Well I think it went well. 'Twas a Pleasant surprise that I felt comfortable, and was already familiar, with the RC topics. With that said.... The LR sections were harder and "more different" than anything I've ever seen before (I felt the same after Oct exam), but I just can't put my finger on it (I'm pretty sure the prep companies will notice a different "trend" in the 70's PTs)..But yeah despite that, I'm feeling good about em, I guess I just didn't expect as big of a challenge as I got, but then again PTs always seem easier than the real thing. LG was pretty basic, super simple shit. And it helped that They were extremely similar to the LG in my most recent PTs. RC seemed easy...too easy... All this is a bit interesting because my focus during the past month of studying had been almost exclusively LR, with RC and LG practice occurring solely while doing their respective sections on PTs. Either I messed RC up really badly or it all finally came together just in time... It's weird that I'm not worrying much about my score but rather obsessing over trying to figure what exactly it was about LR that was so damn different?!?? Someone help me out here..

My only regret here is that I did not take the last LG section first and then the third one last. So I missed 2 questions in the last one, and it was probably the easiest game in the world. SO UPSETTING. I should have looked ahead.. but I really never run out of time in LG, so I didn't think I needed to. Le sigh.

Mirrors was hard to grasp, but the questions were easy. I knew my RC was experimental because when they told me to take out my answer sheet and then my essay sheet and then to put my essay sheet in the back of the book and then oops the proctor said to take it back out, all the flipping, I saw one RC5 and one RC3.


Overall, much easier than October. Thank the GODS!!!!

But still.. very upset about missing free TOO MUCH DETAIL in the last LG :'( :'(

I had LR LG LR LR RC. The fourth one had 27 questions.


Neither of my LRs had 27.

I thought the RC was really easy. Everyone saying it was difficult is putting a spook in me that I might have either gone too fast or misinterpreted.

Maybe cause I had the hard RC experimental prior, the real one seemed immensely easy by comparison.


I thought this was one of the easier RC's. RC is usually my weakest but I thought these topics were pretty decent compared to most I have taken.(PT40-70).

I usually go -0/-1 on LG but timing got me. Overall I think I went -2-4 on LG assuming I'm talking about the real one and not my experimental, which I'm pretty sure now was the experimental.

I suck at RC, I average about -5.5. But that RC was the most difficult ever, it had soooo many option choices that were all extremely plausible.


Same here. I kept moving but was pretty much picking out the"best" answer out of 2/3 suitable options. And I usually average -2/-3 on RC.

It feels like the more recent LRs are not content-focused but rather abstract structure-focused. There also seem to be more red herrings than usual.

Can anyone give any identifying information about the 26Q real LR? I had 26Q LRs both 3rd and 4th, and I know that one of them was the experimental. Would we get banned if we mentioned the topic of one of the questions in the section?

The real LG section was the one with the game about summarizing.


Summarizing what, without going into rule-breaking detail? I forget the prompts, all I know is that my first LG I completed in like 5 mins and then 2-3 took a while.

The 26 LR had a question about cement drying or cracking.

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who thinks something's off about the LR sections on this test and the Oct test! For some reason, my eyes tended to drift a lot on the LR sections for this one and in Oct, but I'm not sure if that's just a result of nerves. But definitely something is different about LR - hopefully it worked out better for me than it did in Oct though.
I agree about RC too - it was better for me than it usually is, but I had to rush a little on the last passage I read

Tell me how many questions you had on each and I could help you determine which LRs were experimental. There was one 25q LR and one 26q LR, that were real.

Roger that, I remember now. Thanks. Didn't mess up that one nearly as bad as the other but rushed the last 2 or so questions because game 2-3 took me forever.

I had an LG game about environmental disasters either during or after the king/emperor's reign. I had LG-LR-LG-RC-LR and I believe that game was in LG2. Was this experimental?

Just so we're all up to speed:

Real LG- Summarizing books, Museum paintings
Real RC- Innate ability, mirrors
One LR section had 26 questions and the other had 25.
