I took the test this february and got a 30. Not a bad score, but I was really hoping for a 32. Here are my subscores:
It's obvious that science is the root of the problem. My strategy has been that I would always skip to the questions, refering to the passage when needed, so I don't know where to go from here. I think my problem is that I panic from seeing time running out, which causes me to waste even more time. I also need a strategy to efficiently orient myself with the passages. I have done lots of practice - I think too much (I did not look at my practice tests for very long after completing them). Maybe I should just chill and wait for the next test? Any and all advice is welcome. Thanks
