    Hi! I got an e-mail from Cambridge Assessment yesterday saying that after 16 March we will not be able to access TSA results/download Statement of Results. 'Cleverly' I didn't download it before and now when I try log onto the site, it says that there is an internal site error..is anyone else having the same problem??
    I think this may have been the problem a few of us when we were typing in the wrong things into certain fields...check carefully that what you're typing in is where it's meant to be...I was getting mixed up between things such as my 'candidate no,' my 'pin' and my 'password...' or something along those lines...

    Just managed to log in! I think you're right; I was probably entering the wrong thing into one of the fields..thanks ..

    What do people tend to get in the online specimen compared with their actual weighted score in the real thing? Is the gap very wide at all? I'm wondering whether a 46/50 will change much, because I find it hard to believe that if, as according to the Cambridge Assessment website, 70% or more puts you roughly in the top 10% of Cambridge applicants, I could have got something around 90% without practice and with a comparatively low IQ in any IQ test I've done.

    It's completely different, they scale using the Rasch model (look it up), which changes scores massively (and results in a nicely shaped bell curve).

    I took a practice test and got 48/50 in half the available time, but then I had to go and study at Brookes instead

    I've heard that the scores do matter, but they are only an indication of a peron's ability and may persuade a tutor to appoint an interview. I just did a mock test and I got 24/ 50... what is an average/ good score that will make it more possible to get an interview or at least the interest of a tutor? I'd like to apply for Experimental Psychology.
    Thanks for all the help in advance =]

    Sorry to be blunt, but that's bad score. Most people get somewhere around 40/50 on their first try. At some colleges they simply deselect the lowest so many percent of TSA score people, so you really should start practicing a lot to make sure your performance on the real thing is better.
