I am 100% sure my RC had 27, I could even repeat the last question if I were so inclined. (I wont though). However, I just can't seem to remember where those weird LR questions were, in S1 or S3.... I'm not sure..!

Did anyone have:

LR (26), RC (27), LR (26), LR (25), LG (22)?

I don't really remember whether I had 25 or 26 for Section 3, but I think it was 26.... and hoping it was NOT the experimental. Kaplan says section 1 is the experimental, but I don't really think they analyzed it enough....


Whoa!  Can you elaborate?  Kaplan does an analysis right after the test?

Did Kaplan just say this today??  Why would they be allowed to disclose that info - wouldn't that be against LSAC rules?

Ok, this seems to happen everytime there is an LSAT.  Some wishful thinkers seem to hope that more than one section number was experimental, and every test since 1991 the experimental has been the same section number for all testers (this includes undisclosed February exams as well).

The reason for the discrepancies on this bulletin board is probably a function of memory and random crap rolling together.  This can happen very easily after a long day of testing.

Based on what has been posted on this particular thread, it would seem that section 1 was experimental.  That means it was section 1 for everybody!

Are you saying it's okay if some tests had 99 questions and some had 100?  If my section 1 was experimental my test would add up to 99 questions.

How do you know about all the Feb tests if most of them havent been released?

There could also be the possibility of Feb exams being 99 questions, especially since the majority of them are left undisclosed.

it seems fairly obvious that the experimental section was not the same for everyone on this test. if people didn't have the LR questions a bunch of us had in section 3, then section 3 was experimental for some. 
i'm not sure why you find it less disturbing that some people would have a 99 Q test and some would have a 100 Q test as opposed to the exp section being in different places.

I saw the link to Kaplan's undisclosed section report on some other forum, but all it said was Section 1 was experimental, and that they would elaborate on their "podcast".

Okay, now I'm confused...is it 1 or 3? How is Kaplan so sure it's 1 if there's such confusion here.
