Recall the prediction thread? Go back and re-post your predictions, and then post your actual scores. (If you did not make a previous prediction, you can still participate in this thread by posting honest predictions.

predictions:
US-770
Writing-710
IC-680

I was close on US (760 Actual), IC (got 690) and did better on writing than I thought (740!)

By Briansee (Briansee) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 08:31 pm: Edit

I was way off one two of them.

I predicted:
Math 2c: 780+
US Hist: 680-700
Writing: 700

I got:
Math: 800
US Hist: 740
Writing: 800

I was excited when I finally saw them.

By Mrbesch (Mrbesch) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 08:32 pm: Edit

I predicted
U.S History - mid to high 700s
Writing- low to mid 600s

I got:
U.S History 770
Writing 740

I may or may not retake, but I am pleasantly suprised.

By Sulskman (Sulskman) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 08:34 pm: Edit

Wait until you get your writing subscores to decide if re-take is needed. If your essay was lower, re-take b/c learning how to do an essay for this exam is easy. MC on writing is difficult. Don't retake US b/c then, well, that's being an Ass and colleges will know.

By Michael_Pham (Michael_Pham) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 08:41 pm: Edit

Well I actually thought I would have gotten around 1300+.
Thought I had done really well for the math of SAT I.
And verbal, I thought I did awful.

Prediction
Math-800
Verbal-500+

Actual
Math-660
Verbal-560

I have lots of time to improve right?
Rising Sophmore. What's the best way to study vocab? And what's the best book for the SAT II Wring?

By Thegumby (Thegumby) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 08:47 pm: Edit

Well in the prediction thread I wrote:
"SAT I:

Prediction: 750 V/690 M
What I [Reasonably] Want: 800 V/720 M"

What I got: 800V/710M

By Sagar_Indurkhya (Sagar_Indurkhya) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 08:49 pm: Edit

Does taking the SAT like 5 or more times really make colleges think you are a loser?

(I naturally progressed each time)

By Insanity (Insanity) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 08:50 pm: Edit

SAT 1:

740 Math
720 Verbal

I predicted
750 Math
720 Verbal

no prep either!!

By Ecnerwalc (Ecnerwalc) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 09:14 pm: Edit

I was way off on two and pretty acurate one.

Predictions:
1. 600 max on writing because of MCs. Got a 760 instead.
2. 800 on chem. 730 instead. dude, I don't know what happened. I felt so confident on the test it wasn't even funny. I did well on BArron's and pr tests too.
3. 740 iic pretty acurate. Will probably retake.

By Adidasty (Adidasty) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 10:17 pm: Edit

I WAS CLOSE! lol! I guessed 800 on Molecular Biology and 710 on Math IIC. I ended up getting an 800 on Molecular Biology and a 700 on Math IIC!

By Altf4 (Altf4) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 10:30 pm: Edit

i guessed i would get <500 on bio M, but i got a 790 because i didn't misalign probably!!!

800 Math II
790 Biology M - SO CLOSe. GODDAMNIT!!! Just gimme 10 more goddamn points.
720 Writing * Yeah. i was shocked that my predictions were almost 100% right. And happy. = )

Actual chem - 780
Actual Us history - 770

By Crypticism (Crypticism) on Friday, June 18, 2004 - 05:28 am: Edit

I predicted anywhere from 650-800 (I was trying not to get my hopes up) on each test.

I got:

740 - Writing
750 - Literature

Not perfect, but not bad at all.

By Jprencipe (Jprencipe) on Friday, June 18, 2004 - 07:00 am: Edit

My predictions were decent.

When I took the Physics, I thought I would get in the high 700's, but I ended up getting an 800, which was an extremely pleasant surprise.

I knew I got an 800 on the Math IIC right after I finished twenty minutes early and then double checked all of the hard questions.

By Just_Forget_Me (Just_Forget_Me) on Friday, June 18, 2004 - 08:53 am: Edit

Before the SAT II writing test, I was thinking something like 760-780 (I got a 74 on PSAT writing, and don't like the essay prompts). After the test, I figured I got something like a 720-740, and was afraid I'd get below a 700 and have to retake.

Somehow, I ended up with an 800. I'm really curious as to whether they liked my essay (which I thought was a load of hoaky crap), or I just did really well on the MC (which I would believe, I'm good with grammar, but make a lot of stupid mistakes).

By Paulhomework (Paulhomework) on Friday, June 18, 2004 - 11:03 am: Edit

Physics:

predicted (after discussing the test on college confidential): 750

By Whtx (Whtx) on Friday, June 18, 2004 - 11:05 am: Edit

Wow toomuch2say, how did you increase your score so much?

Anyways, I predicted 800/780/760 for myself and I got 800/800/750 so I was pretty darn close!

But.... i did REALLY well on math 740 and REALLY BAD on verbal 600

i don't know..i read a lot (Sparknotes) and studied some vocab and did practice tests and then i , to be blunt, got a nice present from my gf the morning of the test..i was in a really good mood haha and i just breezed through. i got the last analogy wrong i know ... probably one other verbal and one quant comp fill in...

whats weird is i used test prep for the other 2 times i took it (1290 november)....and this time nothing like that.

Got IIC 700 (this crushed me, I thought it was easy)

Physics 710 (This was ok, never had a real class)

US 800 (this was surprising, worse subject of the 3)

Chem - lower to mid 700's

Actual:

Chem - 780

I don't know why but i'm never as confident in Chem as I am in Bio. I felt the same way when I took both AP exams. I guess I'll find out how those went in July!
