170.

Went -4 on RC and -1 on game one (perfect on the others). I'm pretty happy with it, but damn... That could've been a killer score

Is it completely unheard of to go more than -10 than your PT average? Like even on your worst day you've never come close to scoring that low.. because thats what happened to me :( i dont know what happened

167. Kinda blah. On the one hand, nothing to be upset about a 94% score. On the other, really down I didn't break 170.

Will see if I get acceptances, and think about retaking in June depending on what my options look like.

No i went through and made sure everything checked out. Could nerves put me at -11 points under my PT average? That just seems so significantly high just from nerves

163. 2-3 points lower than avg. PT leading to the exam. Funny part is that I was convinced I crushed RC and would walk out with -2, and that i did horrible on LG. Turned out the exact opposite. Wtf. So happy to be finished with this exam. On to more important things, like organizing a nice book burning.

I didnt do as well as i was hoping- around the 50% mark for my schools and my gpa is low. I was hoping to be a strong splitter but this changes everything. Does anyone have a link to information on the process of applying with a lower score, then retaking in Feb and calling the schools with updated info?

I'm disappointed too. Below my average. Thinking I'll retake in June.


This is my problem right now. Do I apply with my score, see what happens, or take in June and defer? It just seems that 170 is still uneasy territory for a splitter (but not a 3.0) uGPA


Yeah I'm just not applying, taking June, and applying the day the apps open.

Thanks dj, I know I can do it, but I do not know if I am willing/able to sit out another year. Between Boxing/Football I've taking a lot of hits in life, and this one hurts the most.

170 :) Super pleased to improve from my 167 during September!
International test for anyone else who was worried that it would definitely be released super late because of that
Only wish I knew what our scale was and how many I got wrong!

Yeah you too dude. I did fine it's just not what I wanted given my GPA. I'll plan on starting in mid Feb. It's not even the material, it's my anxiety and ADD I think.

oh combat sports, the reason I can't breathe out of my nose without it sounding like a whistle.

I was in a similar predicament when faced with the possibility of taking a knee another year but look at it glass half full.

you know you're going to get a killer score with the right mindset

if you get a great score in June, you won't rush your apps like you may right now

one of the things that made me kind of happy was that now I have a job that will give me some spending money which you could get too. more time to travel and do what you want, you know?

Sorry to hear you weren't happy with your score cherry, (bet it was still dope tho). Best of luck for June.

Same to you SunDevil, you've got the skills, it's just a matter of maintaining on game day. I would go for June if I were you. Also, I don't know if nerves were a factor. But I really do recommend that book "Performing Under Pressure." I read it after getting an underwhelming Sept score and I think it helped me on the test this time around.

Awesome job jonny. All that worrying finally paid off! :lol:
