    Does anyone know if the SHELF exams are scaled?

    Is it me or has anyone else felt pressed for time while taking one? I finished with only 10 minutes to spare. Normally I finish tests very quickly, but not this one. We were allowed 2 hours to take the test.

    I believe they are scaled. The scores correspond to a percentile, and they're pretty much the same across all the different subjects.

    And yes they take a long time, especially ones with long question stems (I seem to remember Psych being as such). The best one can do is to practice doing Pretest or similar questions and get quick at skimming and picking out the important points...
