Is it possible that games are not getting easier but that we are experiencing a LGB effect? Imagine if games on the recent tests were tested in an experimental section prior to availability of the LGB. As a result, many test takers do not score well. However, since the release of the LGB, which allows many to make significant AR score increases, the comparison of the difficulty as judged by the old test takers is no longer accurate. We may be experiencing the disruptive effect of the LGB on the test. There would be a disconnect between what the only testers thought was difficult and what we think it considered difficult.
This may not be the only reason for the recent “relatively easier” AR sections but could be part of the explanations. Now?
