How did you feel about the October test?

Post by HarmonicDog » Sat Oct 26, 2019 9:38 pm

For me it's slightly harder than the September one. I made nearly 12 guesses. :oops:

I think the difficulty was about on par with the September test. Most of the first 40 questions were straightforward and similar to the practice material available online. After question 40, the difficulty increased significantly. You really have to speed through the first portion if you want any hope of tackling the last 20-25 questions.

I think I did slightly better than in September, mostly because I was more prepared this time around. Hopefully I don't get blindsided 5 weeks from now!

Upon returning home I realised that I made 4 silly mistakes ( one of which involved taking sin(60) to be 1/2). Any idea as to what raw score might be needed to break the 750 score barrier? Any help in this regard would be deeply appreciated.

Depends on the test form you were given.

I personally feel that the first 50 questions were achievable enough. On the contrary there were some tricky questions at the end. Overall paper was not that tough if you are well prepared. If you solved earlier questions at a fast pace, then you will be able to get sufficient time for solving trickier question. I had to guess last few questions due to less time left. How is 750 as a scaled score?

Check this conversion chart out. It's just an approximation, so take it with a grain of salt. But a 750 should correspond to ~42 correct. https://www.mathsub.com/wp-content/uplo ... -chart.pdf
