    correct answer 88
    total score 28
    percentile 1.0e + 2%

    I had 19:28 min left after finishing the last question. I think time management isn't the problem. But does this mean I can use that 19:28 min for the next section such as math or pat or whatever the next section is?

    by the way, what does the percentile mean?
    I don't understand that 'e' thing
    1.0e + 2%? what does this represent?

    and I also heard many people talking about their percentile.
    If you are the first person taking the exam on a day, you are the only person who finished the test, and so how can someone tell you your percentile?

    Edit: 1 more question.
    Why is missing 2 questions out of 90 questions = 28? That's like taking off 1 point per question :(

    I'm not sure about your other questions, but I know that on the real test, if you have time left on a section (PAT or science) you can't use the left over time for any other sections. EX: 10 min left on science section: you can return to any questions on the bio, gchem, or ochem only. If you have 10 min left on your PAT section, you can't go back to the science section. I hope that helps.

    Thank you very much for answer my question at 4am(eastern time :D).
    I guess that means I can spend 19 min staring at the angles... :(

    edit: oh no...Test 7 is much harder than 6 :(

    Test 6 is probably the easiest of the CDP pack (I've only done 7 so far). But if you can score 28 with 20 minutes remaining, you're in good shape for the PAT.

    e is the same thing as "times ten to a certain power. 1e2 % is 1x10^2, or 100%. Congrats dude haha. :laugh:
    (calculators do the e thing a lot. Like 4e-7 would be 4x10^-7)
