I'm very confused by mine - I took every practice exam available under timed, testing conditions and always received a fairly comfortable 990 (not even close to the boundary between 990 and 980) and I felt the actual test went even better than my practice tests (only three questions I was unsure of on the whole test, plus I checked my work on nearly every question), so I am very shocked to have received a 970.
Anyone else surprised by their scores, or think they know how many wrong questions converted to their scaled score? The only idea I can come up with is that the scaling between raw score and scaled score must have been very different from what I am used to as it seemed to be an easier test, but still, typically one can miss 8 or 9 questions and still get a 990 (even with the elimination of the guess penalty if the most recent practice test is any example), and I am racking my brain to think of any possible mistakes I may have made. Never in my life have I made silly algebra/calculation errors on an exam and I'd be surprised if that were it. I'm just confused - can anyone please shed some light?
