I know most of us thought the games were super easy and definitely manageable, but I totally thought games was the hardest section this time around. At least hard in the sense that it seriously messed me up and I'm debating whether I should cancel.
Games usually is fine for me, but for some reason it just didn't click this time around. I'm resigned to the fact that it's always the case if I feel extremely confident about two of the four sections, then the other two almost always are the ones I trip on. It's just unfortunate that I feel I *really* messed up games, especially the last game and maybe even a few errors in games 1 and 3. Augh.
Anyone else in the same boat and screw up on games?
Not exactly, but I didn't think games were as easy as others had been saying. Some games within the section were super easy (the appliances in the dorm room and the repairing electronics one, for example) but the sequencing one threw me in for a loop (the fields harvested or whatever). You would think that the linear sequencing game would be the easiest, but for whatever reason it wasn't that easy for me this morning.

The Embryo passage was the last passage for me and I had 5 minutes to complete it in, thus who knows how many guesses I got right!!
I was in the EXACT situation! When the proctor called 5 minutes, I freaked out b/c the passage had, what, 8 questions???! I blazed through them from shortest to longest question, but I have no idea how many I got right

-5. Not too bad, considering I've been getting 7-10 wrong in RC since the section became more difficult, but definitely not as good as my RC score used to be with older exams (0-3 wrong).

I've always plowed through all 5 sections without breaks just to test my stamina. I'd take a few tests without breaks after every section just to see how you handle it. Cuz on test day, you can't exactly tell the proctor to hold on because you're not ready...
And you do know that drinks aren't allowed during the test, right? If your proctors are nice they'll make an exception for water, but don't count on it.

Choked in October, creaming December.
Will we get the score by christmas?
I recall reading somewhere on this board that scores were out last year by Dec 24th.

Retake also. Took it back in June 2004, regret not studying harder back then.

Well I guess it depends on how you spin it. I included enough details for the reader to understand the situation, but spent most of the essay on how it's made me a better person, student, and daughter. I didn't want to write a sob story because I feel it's tacky and kinda cheap, so my focus was on what I've learned from my experiences.
