    What's with the 20 oz clear bottle being allowed on the desktop? Are you allowed to sip from it during a section?

    I was able to drink out of it and my proctor said it was totally fine

    Sounds like everyone had some rough experiences with their proctor and at least some issues with the software lol. At least I wasn't the only one

    My 8:30 exam did not start until 10:30 and my exam randomly closed in the middle of a section. I did not finish the exam until after 1am. Definitely hindered my mental preparation that i spent the day working on.

    Hi everyone, my exam was scheduled for 7:50 pm and I did not end up starting until 10:00 because my proctor terminated my session and then I had to wait again. I feel as if having anxiety and then these factors did not help when trying to go into the test with my best mindset as I sat there waiting and losing energy. Will lsac accommodate for these types of things?

    I think it is best to call them. They have been having numerous problem this round. Explain to them what happened.

    In the middle of section two, without warning, my proctor exited completely out of the webpage to "troubleshoot a connection issue" –– which lasted 5 minutes (11:19 - 11:24).

    Apprehensive it could happen again any moment, my focus was diminished and performance reduced on sections 3 and 4. I'm livid!

    10 minutes into my exam the proctor kicked me out bc they transferred me to another proctor and they didn’t know I had already gone through the requirements and then proceeded to kick me out 🙃 after I was finally able to get back on, I lost about 10 minutes on my section?? So I basically had to finish a section with 10 minutes less than normal. I didn’t really recover from that. That fuck up cost me AT MINIMUM 6 points bc I couldn’t even GLIMPSE at the last 6 questions of my test. Obviously I guessed in the last 10s but still I emailed LSAC, this was very disruptive and basically spent the next section trying Not to cry.

    @steperez05 that is so awful. i'm so sorry. i feel like LSAC needs to overhaul the ProctorU relationship or offer people meaningful alternatives to promptly retake the test when this kind of thing goes down. it is sickening that people work so hard for this test and then have the whole experience taken out of their control.

    First 2 mins of my test; some idiots protested in front of my building. The constant honking and shouting really didn’t gave me a great start :(

    Btw; I got 2 RCs

    Had 2 RC's as well. First RC felt somewhat easy but last RC felt like a doozy. One game of LG really messed me up so I'm bummed about that and there were about 5 solid questions on LR that stumped me as well. Oh well... January here I come! LOL

    Just completed my test, and super annoyed I did not get my second 10 minute break even though I one, confirmed with the proctor I am allowed two 10 minute breaks before beginning the test, and second, I was anxious as the 60 second timer was counting down so I called and messaged and no proctor was responding! I reallyyyy needed that break because i mentally checked out after the third section because its how I prepped for all my practice test coming up to the test. Its just annoying to be caught off guard, while also heightening my (already bad) anxiety. I emailed lsac so hopefully I can get a retake soon and not a redeemable future "coupon" because I know I could have done way better in that last section had i tuned in properly!!

    Is it strange that I want to take the January too? I believe I did well, but the January looks so tempting

    For anyone with technical difficulties that is planning on retaking: Do you know if filing a complaint will allow you to retake in a timely manner? I am considering filing a complain regarding my experience but do not want to worry about "receiving a coupon" for a future test date considering January is so far down the line. Does anyone know if the retest can be scheduled for a sooner time? Or if it has to be for the next test date AKA jan?

    I was golden until game 3 of LG. Still don’t even know what that was about. Super bummed because LG has become my best. Switched to game 4 midway, then went back to it, only to have to blindly guess on 2 questions. Second RC wasn’t bad, but didn’t go as smoothly as the first for me.

    During my session, they allowed water. But if its a plastic water bottle, they make you remove the paper band off of it. I'm guessing thats to prevent someone writing "answers" on them.

    LR - RC - LG - RC

    Among the content I had recently reviewed before taking the November test included a note from J.Y., on several occasions, to know when to skip a game. This variously noted principle probably saved my hopes of getting a viable score. After killing a few minutes unsuccessfully trying to game out my G2 (through a combination of sloppy translation and underestimating depth), the lesson flickered in my head, and I just skipped it. I was able to complete my third and fourth game very comfortably with almost no issue and almost five minutes to spare, which I put to the incomplete G2.

    I took the October test without preparing as much as I should have, drowned in the early games and had to rush through/guess for the last game and a half - scored way below what I had hoped. I do not know for sure what my November results will be, but I think I have a good shot!

    Did anyone have issues with the proctor controlling their mouse during the timed test? I was unable to select answer choices, underline at many times, I would be using my mouse and it would just fly to the other part of the screen. I filed a complaint, im hoping they let me retest because it really effected my performance.

    I had LG-LR-RC-LG honestly it was not too terrible. Obviously it was challenging but I was not surprised. I was kind of upset because after my break I did not get any instructions from my proctor she just put in the password and I waited a bit then decided it was safe to click Begin. She sent me a chat right as I was starting my RC section so the little ProctorU icon kept jumping up from my dock (the bottom of the screen) so that was distracting (I didn't want to click on it to make it go away because of the time and I was worried I might get in trouble for clicking anywhere else). This was so small compared to what a lot of y'all went through so I almost feel bad about complaining lol

    I filed A complaint for that and that my proctor closed my test 3 min into it to say i was reading 1 question out loud and she was wasting my time and i couldnt Finish the 1st section because of it. But i couldnt Understand it reading it in my head so i spoke It out loud and she started controlling my PC.

    If you felt fine going through you're probably good. The reality is that most people who bother to say anything right after the exam are the ones who know they didn't do so hot. No sense in letting other peoples' post test pessimism get to you.

    I had two LRs. The first one was a bit tough and the second one was easier. I wonder which one was the experimental.

    Any clue as to what the experimental RC was?

  • jerslanderjerslander Alum Member
    146 karma

    Alright looks like the ban is over, so I'll post the contents of my exam and maybe they'll be useful to somebody.

    LR-RC-LG-RC

    LR: 26 questions. Few topics I can remember: goats in the fertile crescent/Azerbaijan, sperm whales and orcas in different regions, patterns for popular startup companies, something about coal. A little on the hard side? Felt like there were some tricky questions, moreso than usual but I'm pretty bad at discerning LR difficulty.

    RC: Functional extinction, Rap/Rakim, redoing psych experiments, neuroimaging. Not too bad? Maybe a single tricky question per passage but nothing crazy.

    LG: I never remember the first game, presentations, Assignment of senior VPs to juniors, Wed/Thursday Work Schedules. First three were fine but I can see how the third can be tricky. Had to brute force most of the last but thankfully finished with time. Pretty fundamental section with some tricky rules. I think knowing when to skip and when to trust your gut was key here.

    RC: Indigenous sovereignty, work hours & consumerism, whig history, hydrogen cars. Probably leaning on the difficult side, especially the first passage and maybe the third passage. Key was definitely spending more time on the questions than the passage.

    From what it looks like online, the last RC was probably real? Honestly pretty ambivalent as to which one is the experimental. All I'm hoping was that I went -0/-1 on LG and my LR+RC wasn't too bad. Honestly predicting the last RC will tip the curve -1 but doubt the LG and LR will adjust the curve in any way. Will just have to wait Thursday for Powerscore's curve prediction.

    I actually thought the LR was on the tougher side (not impossible, but I struggled a bit more than I'm used to), the first RC was so easy but the second I thought was tough. I'm really really hoping the first RC was the actual one and that the second was the experimental. The LG was fine, nothing crazy.

    Good luck to everyone who us about to take it, and to everyone who has- congrats on finishing! :)

    I felt the exact same way! the LR was pretty damn difficult for me, and the first RC was easy but I got so stuck on the 2nd RC. Fingers crossed the first RC will be it!!

    LG-LR-LG-RC on Sunday. I struggle the most with LG and nearly laughed out loud when I saw it was the duplicate. First LG was Weds-Saturday and Supervisors and went OK, I think. The second included the dreaded Ancestors game.

    I found the LR and RC reasonable.
