When is experimental?

Postby christmascookie » Thu Feb 02, 2017 4:17 pm

Which sections have historically and lately been the experimental?

My understanding is that it is almost always section 2 or 3, is this correct?

Literally don't even think about this. Like... Don't think about this at all. It really doesn't matter. Treat all the sections like they're the real sections because you can't tell which is which.

But also, no. That's incorrect.

You do realize not everyone in the room has the same test right?

My most recent administration I had an experimental LG as the third section, but that doesn't mean everyone in the room had an experimental LG section, or that it was third.

I believe anecdata says it is usually in the first three sections (and I'm pretty sure that it used to be guaranteed that way), but I don't think* LSAC officially states that anymore.

My experimental section was section 4.

Agreed. Pending any surprises, my experimental was section 4 (today's test). The options were either 1 or 4 would be my experimental section.

doesn't matter. it's part of the test and therefore you should kill it.
