Alright I just printed out my admissions ticket for Saturday and my picture is a hell of a lot more pixelated than anticipated. I still think it looks good enough but of course I recognize myself. Has anybody experienced anything more than a glance at their photo in previous tests?

each time I've taken when I checked in they put my ID side by side and then looked at me to make sure everything matched.

idk, I mean as long as you're recognizable, I think you should be fine

Did anyone else notice an increase in the difficulty of LR for PTs 78-82 or am I just tripping? I am reviewing 70-81 right now and I did so much better on the earlier tests. :|
Also I was averaging like 174-176 and having a really easy time with LG from 68-75ish and for the past 4-5 tests LG got harder too.
Either anxiety is making me underperform severely OR the tests have gotten harder.
Either way, can't wait to be done!

Don't do anymore IMO. It's just going to stress you more. Do an old high score one. I took a bunch of new PTs this week and I feel like my confidence decreased because I underperformed 5-6 points. No need to put ourselves in more stress. Stick to the familiar. :)))

If it makes you feel better, my picture during my first take had me and my gf in it and the guy let me take it. As long as it's not a straight up blurred block, I'd wager you're fine.

What snacks are y’all bringing?

So far I’m thinking...Pretzels, Tuna/Chicken Salad with Crackers, Peanuts, Some Cheese? Would I be able to fit all this in my gallon ziploc bag, along with the usual test materials?

One banana, which I will eat while pacing around the testing center's lobby, reminding myself that there is a chance that the RC passage that I took earlier may have been experimental, and I have to be prepared to take a second god damn reading comprehension section. This is presuming the first three sections haven't already beaten me, in which case I'll be standing in the cold outside the test center chain smoking.

Definitely have noticed an increase in "difficulty" mostly with a shift in LR and RC. LG just kinda depends.. some more weird miscellaneous games i suppose. The last like 4-5 PTs i really felt like they were tougher.

Alright y’all - made the decision to continue drilling and reviewing LR today. If the shift to harder LR is in fact real then it’s prolly best that i focus on the area I bombed in September. I was gonna PT but don’t feel like being bummed about a score.

I was going to wake up at 5:45 (since that’s when I’ll probably get up Saturday) to BR the shit out of PT 81 but I decided I’m probably better served get a full sleep the next couple of days.

Going to BR today, and just do a few LG tomorrow. Also, skim the written notes I’ve made from all my wrong AC over the past few months.

Yeah i was getting up at around the time i have to get up and my body schedule is already used to getting up that early so today I slept in an extra hr and got up at 7 so i could just maximize my sleep. Restfulness and ease of mind is the most imp at this point

I hope we get a shit ton of sufficient assumption and argument part questions

also @LSAC: we all suck at simple sequencing games so if you could give us 4 of them to give us a real challenge that would be cool!

But just think about the hand cramp you would end up with after 6 writing samples. No thank you!!
