    Wow...that is unfair...Were the scores more evenly distributed? What about PAT?

    I guess that means 3rd time would be neither of them :)

    Yeah i hope the third time means a really really really easy version.

    My scores from the piano were

    Bio: 22
    GChem: 19
    Ochem: 18
    Reading:16
    QR: 14
    PAT:19
    TS:19
    AA:18


    Then my score from the FRAP (my retake)

    Bio: 17 (ouch)
    GChem: 21 (I thought it was really easy, surprised i only got a 21)
    Ochem: 21
    Reading: 15
    QR: 15
    PAT: 21 (again i thought it was really easy, i finished with 20 min left)
    TS:20
    AA:18

    Does the FRAP version have a particularly difficult Bio section? I thought it just indicated that the RC will have the ethics passage.

    The Bio wasn't way hard but i did think it was more difficult then the first DAT i took. I would say there were about 8 questions from the BIO section i had marked to come back to .

    I had the FRAP test. Bio was not that bad at all. RC and QR were hard, especially QR.

    You did a great job bringing up your TS! It sucks you got FRAP-ed I know what it's like. I noticed your chemistry scores improved-could you tell me what you did to raise your scores?

    I keep reading the term "FRAP" on this BB...some people attribute it to a whole test...others to only a section...and others to a passage and some to a question.

    Can somebody succinctly define the term "FRAP" and how they (or others they know) got "FRAPPED"?

    Thanks,
