Ok ranting time

<p>I am so dlkfjdklfkdjflkdsjfkl ****ed.</p>

<p>I just got the ACT QAS for june 2010 today and reviewed my answers.
English: I got 6 wrong, 4 of which were partially/completely stupid mistakes (misbubbled, and misread)
Math: I got 3 wrong, all of which were misbubbled.
Reading: I got 5 wrong, 3 of which were misread.
Science: I got 5 wrong, 4 of which were misread. </p>

<p>I think i win for CC's most amount of stupid mistakes on one test.
I got a 32, which is good. </p>

<p>But i could have gotten a 35. FML FML FML
Because of these stupid mistakes i have to retake. UGHHH!</p>

<p>But im not here to just rant. I need help for the 2 english questions i can't figure out on my own.</p>

<p>Birkeland's work was ridiculed by many of the era's top scientists, who scoffed at the notion that electrons from the Sun could reach Earth's magnetic field from such a great distance. (HOWEVER, IT) wasn't until the 1960's, when satellites first proved the existence of a "solar wind" of particles sweeping past Earth, that Birkeland's central tenet was substantiated.</p>

<p>A) No change
B) Still, it
C) First, it
D) It</p>

<p>Why is it not A? And why is it A?</p>

<p>I think I put D for that one. </p>

<p>It is NOT A, because "however" would suggest that the following clause or sentence or whatever would disprove or contrast the clause before it. Saying that the existence of a solar wind was proved by scientists in the 1960's doesn't oppose the statement that Brikeland's work was ridiculed.</p>

<p>What were your score breakdowns? Just wondering :)</p>

<p>Math: 34
English: 31
Reading: 31
Science: 30 </p>

<p>And thanks for the explanation. I think it makes more sense.</p>

<p>Question: Does everyone receive a QAS sheet, or just people who pay extra to get them? I would like to see mine.</p>

<p>You have to pay extra, about $17 or $18. The service is only available on certain test dates as well.</p>

<p>Can't you get your test hand graded for a fee? That would correct the misreads.</p>

<p>If we don't pay to receive a QAS sheet, is there still a way to know how many questions we missed on each section?</p>

<p>is it too late to get the qAS?</p>

<p>@puggly123 -- No, sorry =/ You can figure out how many questions you missed using your subscores and the curve prediction threads on CC... but, you can't figure out exactly which questions you missed.</p>

<p>And I think you're supposed to ask for the TIR at the time of your registration.</p>

<p>NO one on this site complain about their QAS sheet.. I got 10 wrong in science and got a 26. A freaking 26........................................................................................................................................ At this stage I don't even know what to say. It was the lowest science I've ever gotten and it was on the real thing. I got 35, 34, 30, and a 26.... if I got a 30 or higher I would have had a 33 and ultimatly my dream score... shoot me.</p>

<p>Wait is the answer A or D?</p>

<p>The answer is A sorry about that
I meant to say "Why is it not D? Why is it A?"</p>

<p>What!!! It's not D?!!?!</p>
