    Yes, Along with the fact that some people have not done so well, and not put up there mark.

    Does anybody know how representative the official mocks are compared to this year's real test?

    Saran23 - I found the abstract and quantitative easier in the real thing. The verbal felt slightly harder because the passages were generally longer. I found that the technique that many of the books recommend of not reading the full text but just scanning for keywords doesn't work for me, so I might have been affected more than others by the length of the text given I had to read the whole thing first.

    I don't think that there are some people who haven't added their scores, for whatever reason. As such, it's difficult to get an accurate picture.

    It's difficult to tell as the 600-700 haven't been divided up properly. But no, it seems to have evened out a little. I'd expect it to be the same deciles as last year. I predict that the 600-700s will start to bulge out as we go into September.

    I agree that they'll bulge. But I think overall, averages will rise. For the reasons previously shared.

    If they do, I wouldn't say by much. But I can't see it happening to be honest and definitely not to the degree in 2014.

    You just have to look at the poll for 2014 to see why not.

    This is where our opinions differ: I think to the same degree. But we shall see. And thanks for replying.:chaplin:

    You just have to look at the poll for 2013 to see why not. I just can't see an average rise being that significant. Scores similar to 2012 maybe. The issue with a hike like that a few years ago was solved the following year (they rescaled the DA section which was causing scores to rise so much) and there hasn't been anything like that this year. QR and AR averages will go up (QR might just stay static as its already high) whilst VR's will go down so the overall effect will be a few points at most.

    Just got 720 in total, (610, 780, 770). To revise I used medify for 2 weeks spent the first doing practise and the second week doing a simulation test every day and then further practising on the areas I did badly on.

    My medify scores were:
    VR, QR, AR
    Test 1 : 670, 600, 570
    Test 2 : 650, 630, 700
    Test 3 : 650, 700, 650
    Test 4 : 700, 600, 730

    During the real exam I messed up VR I knew it and was ready to concede defeat. Luckily there is the new section straight after, I'd recommend using this time to try and get some composure for the last sections as nerves definitely ruined my VR section.

    Hope this can be used to help others who are yet to take the test
