The games were worded different as well. Resulting in more time spent up front.

I'm hoping the first LR was experimental because I thought it was hard and I don't think I was warmed up. Also thought RC was tough. After those two sections, I didnt think the other LRs were bad or LG.



I got the same exact order as you. Also RC was brutal. Last game was hard.


I got the exact same order - LR RC LR LG LR. I thought the first two LR were really easy -- maybe -2 combined, but I think I may have -4'd the 3rd LR. :x Games were harder than usual. RC was fairly rough. Depending on the curve/experimental, I'm probably looking at 168-171.


Same here. 3rd LR was definitely more difficult than the first two. I found RC easier than LG though. Fucking circles. I read up on it but I kind of half-assed. Never thought it'd ACTUALLY show up.

What do you mean by rough patches? (Sorry I've been drinking too.)


I felt there were a few questions there were the gaps weren't addressed by the answer choices and/or the answer choices were generally poor. Shrimp farm question comes to mind but any further detail has been lost to alcohol.

Order was LR-RC-LR-LG-LR FWIW


Oh okay yeah, there were a few right in a row that took some time but they were in the teens so I didn't consider it unusual.

The question you're recalling wasn't that bad IMO, I ruled out 3 choices right away then took a moment to finalize my pick. You're not the first I've heard to say it was a toughie tho.

If that's the case, I feel better.

I don't troll on-topics. My thoughts were that it was a fairly standard test, with easy LR, straightforward LG and average to slightly above average RC.


Why does everyone feel like SPS right now? Is this normal?

I found the third LR to be the most challenging, I am not sure if this was considerably harder or if fatigue was an issue.

Physics passage was a little dense. Others were easy. Circles was just a shocker and furniture gardening houseware was a little challenging. 26 Q LR had it's rough patches. 25 Q LR was a piece of cake. That's my overall assessment.

I thought it was harder too. edit: and I don't think I felt fatigued at all

My sample size may not be representative but I find that first takes are more stressful and can warp your perception. Alternatively I've been studying this for way too long.


My perception was gone. It felt like my brain was in a microwave

Anyone else barely look at their watch? I only looked at it for RC after finishing the first passage to make sure I was on a good pace.

EDIT: oh and after finishing the writing in 15 minutes because I wanted to GTFO and pee.

I used it more than I thought I would, but that was because the section start times did not align well with the clock in the room.

This being my second shot at the exam, I found my stress level (before, during, and after) to be considerably less.

I looked at it too much. On LR I was at question 20 after 15minutes and immediately panicked.

On average I checked my watch ~3-4 per section.

diplomats, art installations, department store employees, and... city workers? I forget and I'm afraid to post the first letter of the variables because I think i'd get banned.


Cool cool. I don't remember city workers.. i remember something about gardening.

:(


That was department store employees. Don't give any other details.

Brother I was so into the questions that the proctor's five minute warning made me jump in my seat for each of the MC sections.

Yeah circle was easy if the circle itself didn't mess you up. The others are my brain for breakfast.


Had I had maybe 5-10 more minutes I could probably have finished the circle game. Now I just feel like I fucked up on the entire test


Felt the same way. Sh*t happens and I'm never taking this test again so I'm happy.



Why not? :shock:

Lol I was that guy who ran to the bathroom after coming in late and held up the exam from starting


I had one of those. My test started at 9:10 am due to some guy who forgot to print his slip, and had to find library and print it at the testing center. We were waiting and waiting and waiting…

It wasn't that circles was particularly hard, but more of "wtf they haven't had that in years, why me..." sort of feeling.


I canceled my score after the games section/ I literally had a panic attack during the RC section and couldn't comprehend anything I was reading/ I stayed during the test to do the games and got to the the circle question and was like welllllll that's a wrap (other games were easier) I felt that the LR was easy for this test


Hey,

Im so sorry to hear you had to cancel. :cry: How will this impact you admission plans for this cycle?
