How can I fix this strange problem?

Post by LionelHutzJD » Mon Sep 10, 2012 4:51 pm

Today I took PT 53 and here's how it went.

LR1 -3
LG1 -2
LR2 -12 (??????)
RC -14 (This is expected as I get anywhere from -8 to -14 on a RC section)

How did I tail off so hard towards the end? I mean, i even did a RC section last night and got a -9. When I got to the second LR the questions just seemed more difficult and time consuming for some reason? This isnt the first time there was a huge discrepancy between LR1 and LR2. What could be my issue? Any advice would be great!!.

Hard to say without knowing specifically what you missed, but even a hard section shouldn't throw you like that. If you always falter toward the end, I'd say endurance is an issue (ADHD or anything like that?).

Was diagnosed originally but really dont think that's the issue (now diagnosed with a "non verbal learning disability" whatever the fu** that is).... popped a 25mg XR before i took the test anyway.

Add 1-2 extra sections when you do practice tests. That way, your endurance will improve.
