My friend claims to have gotten 790 V and 760 M, and I see no reason that he would be lying... but in looking at the scores of other posters here, I've noticed none of you seem to have gotten 760 M... was this part of the curve?

Any idea? I'd be shocked if he lied to me...

I won't sleep until I know! hehe

I wanna bust him if he was lying, haha.

I doubt 760 would be part of the score, just because I got a 750 and rarely do the math scores decrease by 10 when its a matter of 2-3 questions wrong. I could be totally off though.

With the different combinations of omits and wrongs, he may well have gotten a 760. I know people who have gotten them on other tests, but not this one in particular.

Anyone else get a 760 M?

Hrm...

I don't think there was 760..

I think it went down like this:

800 780 750 740.. etc etc

No 760; I got 1 wrong and had 780, a friend got 2 wrong and had 750.

let us know what his response when you show him how busted he is!

i just wanna know for kicks

By Thegumby (Thegumby) on Sunday, June 20, 2004 - 07:26 pm: Edit

Renegade-- Isn't it possible that, like... getting 1 wrong and skipping 1 could give you a 760 then? Or like, skipping 2? (I'm not sure if this is what he did).

By Aim78 (Aim78) on Sunday, June 20, 2004 - 08:09 pm: Edit

Getting 2 wrong is the same as skipping 2 because they round 1/2 up. If Renegade's friend wasn't lying, then there was no 760.

By Thegumby (Thegumby) on Thursday, July 01, 2004 - 03:42 pm: Edit

Well, I talked to him yesterday and he said he was "just kidding" and that he actually got a 1490... 790 M/700 V..

I got a 760M!! But... May '03, lol.

I missed 2 questions and got a 750, so there probably is no 760. Little liar. I'm pissed about that curve. I want a nicer curve cus I'm definately better at math than a stupid 750!

On the June test? I got 4 wrong and had a 710...

By Spkelly (Spkelly) on Friday, July 02, 2004 - 04:27 am: Edit

this site is so lame. especially this post. why do you care? and FYI gumby: the only reason people are responding is not because they actually care about your "crisis," it is because this is the perfect opportunity to brag about how they got a 780 not a 760.

By Thegumby (Thegumby) on Saturday, July 03, 2004 - 11:45 pm: Edit

Chidimma: I had the same thing, I thought it was an awfully harsh math curve.

And Abs0lut--I wasn't angry at him or anything, I don't really care all that much about his score... I just thought it was odd because I hadn't seen anyone on the board with a 760 M.

2 wrong and a 750? That's AWFUL! :|
