They seem to get worse with each test.
Yes, they definitely do. So glad I'm done with that, but I'm still ashamed over how badly I was freaking out that day.
I can understand freaking out a bit leading up to taking the test, but freaking out while waiting a few hours for the score is weak sauce. Anyone that prepped and practiced decently well should have a pretty good idea, within a few points, of how they did. I'm always baffled by the people who end up with a score ~10 points lower than their claimed practice test average who also thought they did really well after the test.
I'm fairly certain that these people "practiced" by leisurely going through sections. Maybe they even timed them, but took long breaks in between. When my friend was PTing, she was in the mid-170s and ended with a 166. Even she admitted that her practice sessions were pretty much BS and weren't a good gauge of where she'd end up.
its worse i think because they dont have the illusion of a stable economy, so every point will make a difference; and they know it.
that said....::laughs anyway::
