Score going down 2 practice test before THE test, should I be worried?

I've been pretty much hitting my goal and maintaining my goal score with my twice-a-week preptests and my last two were low. Second to last was low and most recent (yesterday) even lower. I'm freaking, now that I am so close to the test. Why is this happening now? I was experiencing a bit of pain and sinus pain during both tests, I don't want to rely on those excuses... Thoughts?

    It sounds like you're psyching yourself out about the "real" test day. Listen to the newest 7sage podcast, don't take anymore PTs, and just try to remember that you've hit your goal score lots of times in practice and you can do it on the real thing too.

    You’re probably right. Thank you for your words. I’m going to listen to the podcast now. I had one more PT scheduled just to perhaps redeem myself, and then go into the test more confident.

    Same thing happened to me, I was taking 2 in a row every week and this week decided to take 3. The third was a 5 point drop from my average. Definitely is just a combo of being tired, and knowing it's not the real thing. Just think of it as good motivation for a last push of motivation for the real test (which you will exceed your score on) :)
