As Saturday's LSAT concludes, test takers naturally wonder what to make of their experience, and are eager to hear more about the experiences of others. To aid in that, this thread allows you to provide information and feedback about the November LSAT, and will serve as a one-stop repository for all of the details that PowerScore is able to collect on the test.
Per LSAC policies, you are allowed to discuss LSAT question topics and difficulty in general. For example, this means you can identify a game by name and discuss whether you thought it was difficult. You cannot talk about specific answer choices, however. So, "The Water Tubes game was difficult for me" is fine; "the answer to the first three questions was A in that game" is not acceptable.
Note: The list below will be updated in real time as we learn more about the exam, and thus is neither official nor complete while the discussion is ongoing. If you are considering cancelling based on the details provided here, give this thread a day or two so that we can make sure all of the information is accurate.

Working furiously on it now Will be a bit though as LR is always the toughest to determine!
Thank you!!! Additionally,
At the university that I wrote at (Western University, London, Ontario), the school rented out a room directly above us to a band during the test. Drums and electric guitar sounds started 5 minutes in to the second section(which could clearly be heard by everybody) which was my RC section which counted as it was the only one I had. They passed out ear plugs after the second section and got the band to stop playing, but saying this I feel like my score during the second section was drastically effected as well as I was slightly rattled during the third before we got a break. The passages are difficult to understand as it is without a band playing directly above. Is there any ever remedy (like a note explaining situation to schools) for situations like this? or is the only option to rewrite?

Great! how are you so certain if you had 3 LR though?
Just fact checking
Of course, not certain, but it does seem that way
LR (25 Questions): Bonobos Monkeys, Evergreen trees Parallel/ Parallel Flaw right at the end LG LR (26 Quesrions): RC LR (25 Questions): Crux Question about ants making tunnels with specific type of resin. Osteoporosis
If one of the 25 Question sections was experimental, as is suggested by the typical question number for the LSAT, then it’s the first section, since I’ve seen people posting about osteoporosis.
