    First time ever below a 9 on VR, and worst score ever.

    My confidence is at an all time high! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

    Just trying to figure out where to go from here...

    I'm punishing myself and staying home from the lake to do some problems that I didn't get to and to go over this test...

    Thinking very seriously about just chucking everything and clearing my mind before the test...

    I did the worst on AAMC 9 verbal also. Those passages/questions were more difficult than the other AAMC tests and I ran out of time.

    Taking it tomorrow as well. Is the verbal really that bad on this test? Oh well, I will just take a red bull and try to crush it.

    I honestly have no idea what happened...I did poorly on VR on this one in comparison to the other 6 Full length practices I've taken.

    There was one passage I remember barely being able to read...and as luck would have it, I think there were a bunch of questions with it.

    Figured out the problem...all about timing..I did just fine until the last 3 passages...took too much time on one of the 3rd or 4th ones and it left me with no time on the last 2...resulting in missing 15 of the last 17 questions...that left a mark!

    I took it yesterday. I had a problem with the verbal too...7! Much lower than my EK tests.

    Can people improve 3-4 pts in one week? I'm still not quite where I want to be at, and bio can stand to go up some more too!

    Is it just me or the AAMC practice tests getting increasingly more difficult? I'm on my lunch break after the pt #9 verbal section and I swear I was reading jiberish. Wish me luck on bio :confused:

    ok so after consistently scoring 11 and 12 in verbal the last little while... aamc 9 was a wake up call...


    also my computer has a virus which selective ate my answers to 6 bio questions strangely enough...

    If any one has the answers to AAMC 9 165,172,185,186,209,210

    I'd be eternally grateful as right now I'm sitting on an 11 with only one mark to spare lol not knowing is killing me

    Verbal was swell for me- second 12've I've scored...

    It was the PS & BS that beat the crap out of me....

    I guess it didn't kick me in the jimmy so hard since I scored the same on it as I did on the last practice I took (3R) and how I did on the real deal april 05. :(
