This is my first post. Yay!
To the poster above who was inquiring about re-takes: I think the first scenario looks better. It just doesn't seem to me like a 4th test is warranted. I'd suggest taking the last one in Sept and getting apps in early. Or maybe just wait until next June. Waiting sucks, but trust me- it's worth it.
As for me, I for some reason didn't find the games particularly difficult. ...which is odd, because it started out being my weakest section. And I mean WEAK. I was getting like 13 right. Then as I improved in games over time, RC became my worst section. I wonder if anyone else experienced that.
I feel like I only missed two or three max in games and probably the same in each of the LRs, but RC is such a wild card for me now- especially with that old hag Cather and her sorry excuse for novel-writing: "Uhh... I don't suck at novels. It's just that... well, see I prefer to actually not call it a novel. It's a 'NARRATIVE'." ...RIIIGHT. How convenient. Let's just make up a whole new genre to account for your suckiness at novel-writing. Pfff.
Anyway, I'm really, really hoping for some pie-in-the-sky score, like a 167 or 170. I feel like I have a very good shot at 163-165. But then again, you never know. But I *think* I did well, considering I was the only person smiling after the exam, and everyone else looked like they'd just been cavity-searched.
