PT 81

Postby lawschoolgirl312 » Tue Sep 05, 2017 2:31 pm

anyone take that and just got owned because of the scale? and RC?

I scored around my usual 89-90 raw score...but this scale was insane. What are some people's thoughts that the September scale might be just as brutal??

Hard to tell what the score is. But if I had to take a wild guess I'd say maybe -11.

PT 81 was def a hard one. For me RC was rough, LR owned me a bit for some reason and LG was easy.

that was the June test right?

if so, yeah, the scale of -9 was dumb.

Altogether though, not a terribly difficult test

-9 scale because it wasn't that difficult.

I averaged 172.5 (-8 miss average) on my previous 20 before taking june live. I missed 8. ended with a 171. Normally I would go -0 on games. I went -2 because I was careless. That would have given me -6 for a 173. That would have lined up perfectly with my average. Seems fair

should I be worried because I thought this test was difficult? I usually PT around 170 but this time, I only get a 165

What does around 170 mean? I would check what another poster said, I'm thinking a 165 is -15 on PT81, so if you usually get 13-15 wrong per test (which would be a 168-171 range), then you really didn't under-perform. Your weaknesses may have just been more exposed on that exam. Don't dwell on it, figure out where you're lacking and use these last 10 days to fix it! :)

The easy LG is the real killer on this test. It's the reason the scale is awful, and I think most of us would have exchanged the easy LG for an easy LR or RC. I went -2 on RC in June but LR hurt me, went a combined -8.

This thread is making me feel better because I took PT 81 today, and found the RC exceptionally hard and the LG exceptionally easy. I found the RC on PT 80 hard too for some reason... here's hoping the LSAC lightens up in load on RC next weekend!
