    Nope I didnt see the point. EverythIng was straight forward and the answers were all logical. You can't protest a question without it making sense as to why you are protesting.

    Hey look at that I was wrong, I didn't think they would grade the personality questions.
    What do you mean "12 partial credit".. Out of how many? Did they give you the right answers they wanted for the personality? I don't get it

    Well, it's Either partial credit or full credit. If you got the question wrong according to them you got partial credit. Reading comp and vid all together I got 6 wrong. Sorry for the late reply I was down the block at the bar from the site lol

    Is it OK to talk about the test yet? Without getting into too much detail my only complaint was that some of the personality questions were easier if you're closer to high school age. Anyone know what I'm getting at? I got stuck on one question and it caused me to miss that last few questions altogether. If it wasn't timed I wouldn't have had an issue with it.

    ok this is my review on the exam.. i had 2 questions wrong on the test (aside from the personality section) i did think the test was easy at first, so i did go in thinking i did fine. i also did protest against those 2 questions i got wrong, il tell you guys why ina bit.. on the personality section I did get a couple full credit and partial credit, there wasn't any "wrong answers"

    Okay im not sure if people are still taking the test I just edited out the 2 questions i protested. One was a video the other was a passage question. they both weren't CLEAR enough and i hope you guys also protest against em, keep and eye out for your incorrect answers..

    there were about 15 people at the Brooklyn site today.. not many i know, was kind of weird seeing empty seats all around. The session is 4 hours but you'll be done in less than 2, even if you have protests

    yes, every answer had FC or PC or NC.. which stands for full, partial, or no credit.. some questions had 2 or 3 FC, some had 2 or PC in the personality questions, none were NC

    By this, are you saying that some questions within the vids and reading comp sections had more than one answer that would give you full credit?

    We arent talking about the vids and reading.. this is only on the personality section..

    on the vids you're either RIGHT or WRONG..
    some of the vids had 2 or 3 choices, for example "what choices best describes oranges?
    A.round shape B.orange color C.really dense and heavy like lead D. sweet tasting."
    in this example the answers are A,B, and D. so you will get partial credit PC for each of the 3 choices.

    laid back and confident isnt always the ideal way to be sometimes.
    I find this ironic as you said earlier in this very same thread,

    believe me if your iq is above 85 you wont need sleep. i bet i could've gotten a 100 on the exam high on dust off

    its ok, on the personality section you did have 2 FC and 2 PC on some questions an example would be...

    You get mad easily..
    strongly agree PC partial credit
    agree PC partial credit
    disagree FC full credit
    strongly disagree FC full credit

    ALL, they don't "MAKE" you do anything, you choose what you want to take a look at.. you CHOOSE to watch or skip the video, you also choose what notes you want to take.
    I watched the video once and took notes, then skipped the "replays" i also skipped all the answers i had correct, i only reviewed the ones i got incorrect and protested on a separate sheet of paper.

    Same as exam.. 3x and cant go back to the video

    edit: everything is same as the exam, they going to give you a small ziplock for your belonging that goes under your desk. they provide you with the pen and paper, but remember to bring the email and ID!

    Jay, are you referring to the optional questions at the end regarding recruiting etc.?

    It sounds like Mello is talking about the actual personality questions.

    the actually personality quest. some aren't scored!. I cant go too much into detail, but there was one that asked if you ran for student council, if so what (president, treasurer, ect.) some questions like that weren't scored.. maybe looked at, but not scored.. I mean how can you score that? whether you were in the council or not in HS doesn't change the person you are today. thats all i can say, check it out on your protest review.

    All high school questions, how many friends you know etc.....are not scored. Everything else is. Vids reading comp, it's either you got right or you got it wrong period. Some were partial credIt, well Atleast my test. Personality Q's, two were full credit, on some. The rest were partial credit. Guys don't worry, the most points goes for the personality Q's. The second highest is the vid Q's. And reading comp is 1/3 of a point maybe or according to the vulcans. Personality highest points, videos medium points, reading comprehension lowest points. Once again all according to the vulcans, not word fOr word but I got the point from what they said at the tutoring nights.
