Was June LSAT easier?

Postby myk247 » Wed Jul 12, 2017 12:50 am

I thought it was, and was wondering how people feel.

LG was super easy unfortunately. LR was average with a few tricky questions, and RC was the same. In my opinion.

Objectively LR1, RC and LG were pretty easy IMHO while LR2 was slightly above average difficulty. But the strict curve evened it out, so while the questions themselves were overall easier there was no real change in difficulty required to reach a certain score.

The 25 question one? I went -4 on it which was half of my total missed questions.

Yeah I went -2 on the 25 question one, -3 on the 26 question one

I think the curve is largely a joke. I averaged -8 on the most recent 20 PTs (with curves all in the -9 to -14 range). Went -8 on June

The content was pretty weird but the structure was pretty standard. Still was on the harder end and took me about 11 minutes to do all the questions, but as you said the rest of the section was super easy, which balanced things out. Definitely have seen harder passages (Pin factory, Eilean Grey etc.) but inferential thinking is probably up there in my top 5 hardest.

Funny thing is my only miss was on the first passage, which was by far the easiest.

I don't think I ever did pin factory, but I didn't think Eileen Grey was difficult at all. I only missed 3 RC, and all on that stupid passage haha. Two of them were inferential Qs

I think one thing that messed me up was having the experimental LG before LR2. That brewery game really crushed me and I went into LR2 still thinking about it, ended up missing 5 questions there. I hope they scrap that game.

I somehow got three wrong on LG and I NEVER miss LG. So, that was a major bummer.

But, IMO, this LSAT was harder because the hardest questions were tricky to feel confident on and the easy questions killed the curve.

Luckily I got a super easy LG experimental just before the break. I finished with 5 minutes left which I never do. Was kind of bummed out that it wasn't real since I made a couple stupid mistakes on the real one.

I think many users here would agree with me, but I'd rather have a slightly harder test with a normal curve than the test we got in June. I'm also super salty that I performed at the bottom of my range, but my opinion still stands.

Would much rather have 'regular' test with -12 curve. I'll still miss 8 questions regardless

I routinely miss the same amount of questions regardless of the curve...

The LG felt bizarrely easy to me. And I am bad at LG.

Harsh curves affect high scorers disproportionately. So while the June LSAT might've been easier for someone who is bad at LG, since a lot of high scorers are good at LG, they'd probably have been better off with a more generous curve and harder LG section. Also, such a harsh curve leaves little room for error, so if you tend to make a few careless mistakes on every PT, it would've been really hard to have gotten a high score on this test.
