I honestly was starting to feel like the stimulus was a blur, rereading them multiple times and it felt like I was lost, its like it all became foreign to me overnight. I had a stretch where I kept making easy mistakes and my scores were 169, 169, 167, 168, 169. My last 2 have been a 163 so idk wtf to do now. I have confidently fixed my timing issue to where I havent omitted any questions as well, but the last two exams both times I have run out of time for about 3-5 questions which hasnt happened in forever.

this happened to me last take. I got burnout out at the end and scored a 161 and 163 on my last two PTs the week of the test. ended up scoring a 163 when my PT average was 167-168. don't let it psyche you out, and don't take any more PTs (at least I wouldn't).

did you split it? splitting the game board is OP in these newer tests.

YES, did the game so fast after splitting it into three. I think what threw me off was the rules, I figured not to risk splitting it and end up wasting my time.

YES, did the game so fast after splitting it into three. I think what threw me off was the rules didn't seem typical. Its actually pretty obvious after seeing the implications of the LL block and the nonconsecutive Gs. I feel like an idiot.

I was on another tab when the ad popped up on TLS and I was really confused for a good 15 seconds.

yeah- i was half kidding.

looking at what i've missed, i missed a lot of things for lack of paying attention/ cueing in on the wrong things. I think its a test that kinda looked harder than it really is


you know what though, I found the hard LR's like REALLY HARD. I just finished reveiwing / write ups on the LR today and oh my some of them are so tough. went -5 and -3 respectively

I found the first LR super hard actually. Second one I felt pretty confident.

I missed 1 on the first one, but I think most people found that one harder. missed 4 on the second :(. some of the answer choices have veeery small differences that go unnoticed under time pressure.

honestly thats really impressive.

Yeah you're right. In review I realized for this test that every single word maters for these LR questions. Very subtle language cues make the difference between the right and wrong answer. Furthermore, I feel like it is also a bit more "loose" with regard to how well principles must fit. They are really using the idea of "which best fits" less strictly than in the past, IMO.
