    If there is an experimental passage, what if you nailed that one, but you bombed another real passage. Then the points you got on the experimental don't get awarded, and you get taken off for the other passage?

    So I guess that's right, you'd get no points for the experimental passage.

    I think if lots of people ace it, they just won't use it. It has nothing to do with your score.
