So how does the curve work exactly? Can anyone explain, is it only for those that actually achieve a 170. Is it beneficial to all LSAT takers?
Also in deciding on whether to cancel your score or not, how do multiple scores look on your LSAT application, do they count against you?
I am not really sure how I did when I was running out of time I had to bubble in some questions. I am usually really good and the comparative passages for RC but the riot one was pretty dense,and there was one other that I am not too sure about.

I think it may be different for everyone but I had the the same order RC-LR-LG-LR-LG.

This should help: https://www.powerscore.com/lsat/help/scale.cfm

These days, only the highest score matters; multiple scores aren't considered notable anymore up to about 4-5 takes.

Thanks!

Yeah, it looks like there were 4 different variations of sections/section order. I am trying to figure out which LG was experimental- was it the first LG (which was section 3) or was it the last LG (which was section 5).

I did a lot better (I hope!) on the last LG so I am hoping the last one was the scored LG.

RC-LR-LG-LR-LG

Update: I found out the LG from the 3rd section was experimental and the last one from the 5th section will be scored!

How many questions per section, is not even a fathom of mine on test day.

I do recall the order.

LR
RC
LR
LG
LR

I was relieved once I finished yesterday, and since have been rather calm. Looking forward to the 27th.

Congratulations to everyone!

Aside: That LR spotted cheetah and lion question keeps haunting me.

Hi everyone- I’m sorry for posting again, but does anyone know which LR was the experimental from the order of LR-RC-LR-LG-LR?

I’m still struggling between to keep or to cancel - If anyone can help, it will be greatly greatly appreciated!!

Hi Daily,

It was 1 or 3 but since test takers with the same order can have Exps in different spots, we can't say for sure which was yours based just on your section order!

Thanks!

Great! I was hoping experimental was the 3rd section as well. I could not figure out the last two games for the life of me!

Hi Ericau,

The last two games were challenging for me as well. I had to resort to brute force on a few of the questions.
