Retake WUSTL chem placement test

<p>Hello
Was anyone else asked to retake the chemistry placement test? Is this necessary? I feel that if I suck on a placement test they are supposed to place me in the study groups, not ask me to study and take it again. It is a placement test!
Does anyone know if I have to take it again or if I will still be able to be placed in the groups since I already took it once</p>

<p>Also, is this a common thing...or did I just really bomb the test</p>

<p>This question is far too specific for any of us to (likely) have an answer. Guessing, I doubt you should have to retake it. If I failed a math placement I'd just complain until someone put me in whatever class I wanted.</p>

<p>So many people worry about this test. I can tell you - IT IS NOTHING.</p>

<p>If you score below a certain threshold, they will recommend (just recommend!) that you enroll in the extended recitation. Small-group recitation classes accompany the large lecture classes and are designed to review the material you were taught in lecture. Extended recitation is the same thing as regular recitation (in fact, nobody even freakin' cares which you're in) except that it's half an hour longer. I've even heard that some people intentionally try to do badly on the test or otherwise talk their way into these extended recitation because any little extra tutoring helps.</p>

<p>I don't think you can retake the test, and there is no point even if you could. It's more or less a two-hour long waste of time that they require you to do.</p>

<p>You do have to take it to qualify for PLTL though, but really, it's not that big of a deal. It's a "diagnostic" exam, not a placement exam.</p>
