8 on essay and still get 700+??

<p>Anyone that got an 8 on essay got over 700? If so, how many MC did u get wrong?</p>

<p>you can get almost 800 with that!!!!</p>

<p>I got an 8 on my essay and it's only 61/80!! I don't know how many MCs I got wrong but I got a 650.</p>

<p>I got 9 on my essay... and 780.</p>

<p>and 5 mcswrong.</p>

<p>How many MC did you get wrong though? Like none?</p>

<p>I got a 9 on my essay and got a 780 as well; 4 MCs wrong.</p>

<p>8 on my essay, 11 wrong - 700. So if you ace the MC, I'm sure you can get an 800.</p>

<p>8 on essay and 13 wrong mc is 670............</p>

<p>Wow, Davidrune- we got the exact same # wrong, same score on essay.</p>

<p>Your essay is worth only 1/3 of your score...so I think you could score say even a 7 on your essay, and provided that you ace your MC, score an 800.</p>

<p>wrong, a friend missed 2mc and got a 7 on the essay - 690, he was ****ed lol.. anyway 2 mc's wouldnt give him 800, maybe 710-720</p>

<p>I got a 7/12=56 subscore on the essay, 80MC subscore, so I got a 720.</p>

<p>Someone please explain...</p>

<p>How is it that someone can do so poorly on the writing sample, but have such a solid grasp of the multiple choice portion?</p>

<p>You mean like me?...Well, me have perfect grammar, so that weren't no problem. As for the essay, I wrote a two-paragraph, straight-to-the-point essay, instead of wasting time with an introduction, and I think I may have made up a lot of my facts. I thought I deserved an 8 though, but whatever--720 ain't bad...</p>

<p>how do you know what you got on your essay? i got 75/80, but i dont know what the actual grade on the rubric i got was. does anyone know where you can find this information?</p>

<p>yeah i got 8 on the essay and 4 mc wrong...i got 770</p>

<p>wait, remind me how the writing scores are calculated, according to jaredthegreat, 7/12 gave him 56? how does that work out???</p>

<p>The scale isn't always the same, I assume. More assumptions: 7 might convert to a 56 one time, but a 53 another. Same with the multiple choice--sometimes you can miss 6 and still get an 80, other times it could be only 3. Changing the two subscores to the test score is always the same though: (2<em>MC+essay)/240</em>800. For me it was (2<em>80+56)/240</em>800=720.</p>
