I had the LR(25); RC; LR(25); LR(25); LG.

It's difficult with all those LR questions to place certain questions in the correct sections. I am hoping that the section right before break was experimental. It seemed difficult on the front end.

I had experimental lr and I don't think I had that question

I'm pretty sure I did not have that question, but I'm not exclusively confident. Initially I didn't remember having the city privatizing parking question, but it turns out that I did.

Hm, that was in the same section as the Mate tea question which seems like many people saw. I guess the experimental section do vary questions as well?

I had a question about Mate tea and did not have an LR experimental, but I don't remember anything about a conference.

We get the the answer sheet, which includes the credited responses and your responses, question for question. You get you overall score and the corresponding percentile. We get everything, save for the experimental section data, of course.

I believe you also get the test questions for up to 6(?) months after the test that you can go through with the correct responses (if this was intended to be expressed, it wasn't clear).

Also, can someone explain the curve to me? Is that a guess of number of missed questions to a 170?

Yes

For the record - yes, this question is ban worthy. The user has been banned. The reason is that it asks about specific answers.

Also is the above bannable? Trying to not get banned a third time.


The one with coffee and tea? If so I had that. I also thought that one was tricky until I figured it out and almost had to smack myself. It was one of those where the answer is so obvious once you realize, but the wording makes it tough.


Same with me. I chose the right answer just because it seemed right and circled it to go back and when I read the question and answers again and I was like wow DUH.

Nice, seems like I'm the first TLS international taker checking in to this thread... Kind of sucks reading all your analyses and not being able to relate because my test was different though haha

Anyway, thought it went ok. Unfortunately, the games section that was real for me was the one I messed up on and I crushed the experimental. But all the other sections went smoothly I think, so we will see what happens.

Question though: Will we (international test takers) get our scores when y'all do?

When does everyone think our scores will come out? Over the past 5 years it looks like scores have come out in three weeks on the dot for 3/5, 1 year they came 1 day after three weeks, and one year they came a few days before the three week mark (fingers crossed for that :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ).

My testing center was great even with the hour drive there. The proctors had clearly done this before and we were out of there at 5.


haha I had my black ticonderogas and someone told me even my pencils were intense so I was bound to score well...well lets hope! :wink:

I believe this was experimental, because it was question 25 and then I had question 26 right next to it. I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure!



Agreed. This was section1 for me, and my format was LR (26) - RC - LR (25) - LR (25) - LG

I must not be talking about the same one because i had two LG sections. First one experimental was hard i probably did a touch better on the second games section.. the rest of the test seemed alright as well i'm hoping for a 160 i dont know tho
