From past data (over past 10 years) I see a lot of December tests with scorers missing 14 questions to get an 170.

Also, meticulous curve speculation is a flame b/c most people keep referring to harder than average sections but the curve is set by the difficulty of individual questions not sections. I can think of a dozen questions that I imagine a majority of people got wrong (and 40+ questions no one probably got wrong).


Check plus.

thought you all may find this interesting

cliffs:
december always has highest curve
june always has smallest curve

december consistently has the least amount of test-takers scoring above 170 but this can be due to many factors

so last december if i remember correctly, someone had to miss 14 questions to get an 170. if you look at the chart and subtract 14 from 101, you get a number that corresponds to 170. i don't know what you mean by "curve" but this is how I generated my "14 no"

thats what he means by curve.

for reference's sake, last dec (68) had a -12 curve. the dec before that (65) had -14, 62 had -14, and 59 had -14.



What was last october's curve?

I had LG1 RC LR LR LG2, the first LG seemed pretty easy and I don't really remember it, but the second LG destroyed me - I remember one game with the flights being nonstop/layovers, and one game with long films/short films, reeeeally hoping the second LG was exp...

I predict -14.

The obsession with the curve may be due, in part to the perception this test was very easy.

Easy tests have less forgiving curves.

Also, this test may ultimately have 100 questions, not 101.

LSAT omits questions from scoring with some frequency.

This test may ultimately have 100 questions.

I thought october was really easy and I was surprised by the curve. That's why I'm predicting such a high curve for this one, it was much more difficult than october.

I'd call this test on par with October difficulty overall (maybe a little tougher, but that's because I fail at scantrons). Definitely not 'very easy'.


October's Games, LR and RC were all far harder.

The first game in today's LG was a joke.

The RC was straightforward and the questions didn't have the ambiguous answer choices that 70 did.

I have never taken an easier LSAT and I've done every prep test, and this terrifies me.

I so want to believe you. But I'm still preparing for the end times.

100 Qs, -9 curve.
