I think it would all depend on your type of personality. personally, though, I did better than I thought I had done as well. Just be glad you're done with the test and relax as much as possible before getting the scoes. It's out of your hands now.
Exactly. It all depends on your personality. I have a friend who left the test sure that he got a 30+, but ended up with a 27. I, on the other hand, was expecting a 26-29 and got 30+. There's really no way to know until your results come in.
comming out I felt pretty descent about it, thought I prolly did okay. I ended up doing really well, much better than I expected. It was great.
So, don't worry about it now, there's nothing more you can do about it. If you came out feeling good, congratulations! You probably did well.

I actually didn't think about what number score I would get, but I knew I could do it. Good luck if you are waiting on your own score and I bet you are!
edit: Oh . . and I did better than my best practice test, if that helps!
I thought that I bombed the PS section (8-9) and ended up with a 10. I thought that I did pretty well (11-12) on Bio, and ended up with an 11. I thought that I did incredibely well on Verbal, and got a 12. So, overall, i'd say I was accurate within a point.
Don't sweat it too much. I know it's hard not to obsess, especially with SDN at your fingertips, but it will probably only make you feel worse. Take a deep breath and focus on other things; you'll get your score soon enough. I'd say start obsessing about two weeks before scores come out, no earlier.
My initial thought was that I did good- at least as good as my practice tests, but some of the people on SDN are starting to freak me out. Everyone is saying that it was really hard and what not. I am starting to think I just had an easy version or something and that there will be a strict curve. Oh well... I hate waiting!
