I didn't have any, but that doesn't mean you won't. Luckily, you know it's your weakness. Go and read some philosophy articles to improve your comprehension. You could also try asking a philosophy professor for some tips. Lastly, search through your verbal prep books for some practice, philosophy-based, passages to test yourself.

I think I had one philo passage in my VR. I don't remember it too well, but it was just like others in terms of difficulty. The passage might be difficult to read, but these passages usually have easier questions.
