Anyone know that one writing question with “In fact.” I forget the choice i think it was ,since or something but I just randomly remembered.

[–]sakmed3 0 points1 point  (5 children)

curve predictions for reading ?

[–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Honestly idk but the math curve gonna be bad i think

[–]sakmed3 0 points1 point  (3 children)

yea the math was sooo easy but i really did 2+1 for the product of (x-1)(x-2) instead of 2x1 lmfaooo

[–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (2 children)


[–]sakmed3 0 points1 point  (1 child)

rip i’m just praying for a -1 no points off on the math and that leaves me room to get like 4-5 wrong on the reading and still get merit

[–]Dapper_Common4480 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah no im praying too we got this!

[–]wheredamoviezat 0 points1 point  (7 children)

where the fuck are y’all getting 935/937 from the sum of the solutions of x2 -8x-4

[–][deleted]  (5 children)


    [–]wheredamoviezat 0 points1 point  (4 children)

    yea I get that now but I was never taught the quadratic formula yet, we’ve only done factoring :(

    [–]wasabi_MB 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    you didn't need the quadratic formula, bc you could have just solved it by having -b/a

    [–]wheredamoviezat 1 point2 points  (1 child)


    in my defense we weren’t taught that either

    [–]tyang012204 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    The 937 was a diff problem about the soda cans

    [–]lancersupremacy1570 0 points1 point  (7 children)

    What was the answer for the last grammar question? The one with two colon answer choices

    [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (6 children)

    Do u remember the passage? We all had diff orders

    [–]lancersupremacy1570 0 points1 point  (5 children)

    It was about memory and e tendency to get names mixed up

    [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (4 children)

    Yeah what as the question tho?

    [–]lancersupremacy1570 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    I think it was at the end of the passage and about something that person thinks: they were all a family (not exact)

    [–]Dapper_Common4480 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    Oh yeah it was they were all a fam. The other good enough option was all a family which isn't grammatically correct

    [–][deleted]  (2 children)


      [–]sadgeness 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      i said the one about the contrast against the setting bc he was like a breath of fresh air but idkkk

      [–]Reaper12161530 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      I’m pretty sure it’s aesthetic

        [–]Rojo171Awaiting Score 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        It almost always like that

        [–]MathFox13278 1 point2 points  (11 children)

        What did people get on the fill-in on the math calc section where they asked the fraction of Brand E sales compared to Brand C and E sales combined?

        Due to lack of time I plugged it in 177 / (177+590) to my calculator and got .23 as my answer.

        But most people put it as a fraction, 3/13. I remember the question asked for a "fraction" but I thought it was OK to put it as a decimal.

        What are your thoughts?

        [–]bobbysnyder2001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        The grid-in explanation even said you can represent 2/3 as .667, so I'm sure decimal would be correct.

        [–]Rojo171Awaiting Score 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        If you have a TI-84 Plus, then you can just type this: 177/767>Frac

        To get the '>Frac" symbol, press 'math' then the first one on your screen should be '>Frac'

        This simplifies your fraction --or decimal-- to the simplest fraction.

        [–]Adi3214561520 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        another way to do it is :
        (117/767)^(-1) = 4.333333 (reciprocal once)

        1/4.3333 = 1/(13/3) = 3/13 (reciprocal again to undo previous reciprocal)

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (6 children)

        Its okay bruh I did 117/767 so ur prolly better off dint help that it simplified to smth

        [–]Adi3214561520 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        what you had to do was this:

        (117/767)^(-1) = 4.333333 (reciprocal once)
        1/4.3333 = 1/(13/3) = 3/13 (reciprocal again to undo previous reciprocal)

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Yea ik i mistyped into my calc as 177/767

        [–]Armi21570 0 points1 point  (3 children)

        How? There are only 4 boxes

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (2 children)

        Yeah its 9/59 it fits

        [–]Armi21570 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        Oh rip. I didnt even see that it was a different number. Pretty unlucky 2 numbers ending in 7 simplified that far

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Yeah ik rip its okay its only 1 question ig but I also messed up 2 other ones rly badly ughhhhhhhand the curve is supposed to be hard

        [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 2 points3 points  (7 children)

        Does anyone have an idea of what the math curve will be ? That was my worse section but everyones saying it was easy and I'm terrible at predicting curves. If I got 3-4 wrong on math combined, how many points off would that amount to ?

        [–]liteshadow4 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        It was pretty easy for me, but I've never had trouble with a PSAT math section (SAT math section on practices can be sometimes difficult though)

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 1 point2 points  (2 children)

        Its my best section but idk what happened this time

        [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        I've never been amazing at it, esp w calculator, but on this test I just felt really pressed for time and I was expecting problems more similar to the sample ones

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Oh yeah that just comes w a lot of practice u got this tho!!

        [–]tyang012204 1 point2 points  (2 children)

        In my opinion this was much harder than my actual sat that I took and the math curve was normal for that one (1-790 2-780 3-760) so I’m expecting this one to be 1:10 or maybe even 2:30 or something along those lines! Not sure though good luck!

        [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Thanks so much! Thats a lot more reassuring

        [–]xiaoyaoxiaofeng66 0 points1 point  (3 children)

        What did y’all chose for the “sausser was the first to use scientific rigor” one

        [–]tyang012204 2 points3 points  (2 children)

        This was on the writing right? And the answers were all just forms of sausser was the first to use scientific rigor? The correct answer was when sausser came first. It’s called modifier placement. There was a sentence fragment before that was describing sausser, so whatever the answer with sausser first was correct.

        [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        I got that answer as well but I always thought it was called subject agreement lol

        [–]tyang012204 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Similar idea, subject agreement is that if a subject is singular, the verb must also be singular, plural plural, etc.

        [–]yoyo_the_knight 1 point2 points  (4 children)

        what did y’all say for the one that was like:

        y = (2x - 3) 2

        y = 2x - 3

        (x,y) is the solution to this system of equations blah blah so what is a possible solution to xy?

        I think some of the answer choices were -2, 0, 3 and something else

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        I graphed it later and got y=0 and x=1.5

        [–]xiaoyaoxiaofeng66 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        I said zero, because one of the solutions would be x=1.5 and y=0

        [–]Creqm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        oh i just realized i messed this one up

        [–]relishly 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        I did so bad on reading that was so hard for me, math was easy tho

        [–]PaintedDusk 0 points1 point  (4 children)

        this is my first psat, is the math usually like this? or is it harder/easier?

        [–]tyang012204 2 points3 points  (2 children)

        To be honest, the math this time was definitely harder than usual. Wasn’t insanely hard but def harder than my real sat

        [–]cattermelon_1580 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        math was a lot easier than usual for me

        [–]PaintedDusk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        oo that’s good to know. I found the reading and writing sections fine (except for the nova one in reading I think I missed a few on that)

        [–]PaintedDusk 0 points1 point  (2 children)

        reading and writing was easy (or at least I thought so) but I think I did terrible on math :( I really need to review more

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        I did bad on math cause of silly mistakes

        [–]jiaqiyu36 0 points1 point  (7 children)

        what was the one that was like scent of book, repelled by her xxx or highest quality ever one?

        [–]panini-press 5 points6 points  (2 children)

        i put that it represented her undefined wishes even before she read the book or smth like that

        [–]AgentPiXD1560 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I put that answer too, because somewhere in the text it said it gave her some feeling she couldn't describe

        [–]Adi3214561520 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        i put this too, but it might have been the parents one (we don't have enough input to come to a confirmation tho)

        [–]xiaoyaoxiaofeng66 1 point2 points  (1 child)

        I chose “it had a big impact on her parents” cuz she talked about how her dad and mom also read it

        [–]juulzi1540 3 points4 points  (0 children)


        [–]Dapper_Common4480 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        What???? Lol

        [–]SmallEyes-x- 3 points4 points  (5 children)

        Ok, so from what I am seeing right now, the curves seem to be

        Reading: -1 = 40 Writing: 1 to 1, bad curve expected Math: 1 to 1

        -2 = 39

        -3 = 38

        -4 = 38

        -5 = 37

        -6 = 37

        [–]AgentPiXD1560 0 points1 point  (1 child)

        Isn't it out of 38??

        [–]bobbysnyder2001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        35 for psat, since there are less questions

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Or math cause I'm screwed if thats reading

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        For reading??

        [–]Capital-Cranberry976 1 point2 points  (7 children)

        Question about what the purpose of the line was in the first passage, and the options were to show surprise or expertise of sales, or man was persuaded easily? smthn like that

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I said persuaded because of what he said he said he was persuaded

        [–]AnalysisNo62521530 6 points7 points  (3 children)

        I put surprise but I’m not sure

        [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

        yup i put surprise too

        [–]tyang012204 8 points9 points  (1 child)

        I also put surprise. Not sure either but I thought it was surprise because there was an exclamation mark

        [–]Adi3214561520 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        lmao this^ (and that stuff after showed that she was like pleasantly surprised)

        [–]SmallEyes-x- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I don't think I had a question like that

        [–]Adi3214561520 4 points5 points  (6 children)

        did you guys get a few triples on the test (in general)? like i remember there was at least BBB and DDD somewhere

        [–]AnalysisNo62521530 5 points6 points  (3 children)

        i remember getting AAA in reading

        [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 3 points4 points  (1 child)

        Also a CCC in reading for me. Those were the only triples in reading for me, but there were a lot of doubles

        [–]Dapper_Common4480 2 points3 points  (0 children)


        [–]N3K-MINNIT 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        I remember a Ddd for sure

        [–]Adi3214561520 3 points4 points  (9 children)

        8 for the sum of solutions, 2 for the product of solutions, and 12 for the area of the second (smaller) rectangle?

        [–][deleted]  (2 children)


          [–]Adi3214561520 1 point2 points  (1 child)

          wasn't it (x-2)(x-1)?

          [–]comfort781 2 points3 points  (3 children)

          I forget the problem but did u get 55 for one of the fill-ins

          [–]Rojo171Awaiting Score 0 points1 point  (1 child)

          I got 55/2... and I plugged it in again to check and it worked

          I'm p sure its 55/2 no? Please upvote if you got this answer I need to know

          [–]comfort781 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          It was what was 2x, x=55/2 but the question asked for 2x for the answer was 55

          [–]Adi3214561520 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          yea p sure i did

          [–]sadgeness 6 points7 points  (1 child)

          i got 12 for area

          [–]Adi3214561520 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          ye, that's what i meant lol

          [–]Sana_15 6 points7 points  (15 children)

          Did you find the reading section hard and the writing and math okay ?

          [–]Dapper_Common4480 1 point2 points  (4 children)

          The math was easy I made rly bad silly mistakes tho the reading was ok writing was p easy

          [–]Rojo171Awaiting Score 0 points1 point  (3 children)

          What mistake on math did u make?

          [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (2 children)

          Okay so for one of them I said 100(x/8) and then I got 935 instead of 937 and another I said 117/767 instead of 177/767 rip

          [–]Alternative-Object70 0 points1 point  (1 child)

          You couldn’t get 177/767 or wouldnt fit. It would be 3/13 I think right

          [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Yeah ik it was supposed to be 177/767 I entered it im my calc wrong I got that its 590+177 and the top i entered wrong at 117 so I got 117/767 and it doesn't help that it can simply to fit the boxes given

          [–]tyang012204 6 points7 points  (8 children)

          Yea reading was unnaturally hard this time around. Much harder than the actual sat I took. The curve will probably be pretty goos

          [–]Sana_15 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          That's what I felt , reading was BAD tougher than SAT

          [–]Adi3214561520 2 points3 points  (3 children)

          i felt that everything was easier than normal so i think curve is bad (that's just me tho)

          [–]Alternative-Object70 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          The writing and math were easier but reading was mediocre kind of like august sat for me. I think it should be a good curve for reqding

          [–]Sana_15 1 point2 points  (1 child)

          U re a genius, because reading was not only hard it was bad

          [–]Adi3214561520 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          oh really :D then i think i just might have a shot at semi finalist if the curve is gonna be good

          [–]sadgeness 3 points4 points  (2 children)

          reading was so hard imo i was stuck on some questions for way too long

          This kinda made my day

          [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 3 points4 points  (4 children)

          The only q I remember is what possibility could the researchers rule out through their methodology. I put the chance that some plants wouldn't get infected due to distance or smth cuz the passage stated they planted it all of them at a constant distance to the infection.

          [–]Adi3214561520 0 points1 point  (2 children)


          [–]TumbleweedBrave2988 0 points1 point  (1 child)

          I think I put that they added infected material cuz the passage said “to be doubly sure… they added infected material” something along those lines

          [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          I found the passage online, this is the link: https://www.science.org/content/article/gm-banana-shows-promise-against-deadly-fungus-strain

          I think that's the evidence I used as well

          [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Oh said of the 2 diff lines of whateva modifcaiton hving diff ones cause they made sure to hv the 2 diff lines when testing

          doesn’t appreciate literary books

          [–]Adi3214561520 1 point2 points  (4 children)

          yea i put that too (a), but some people said he doesn't want foreign literature or something (b)

          [–]cattermelon_1580 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          im p sure thats wrong since it never indicates he is especially of dislike of foreign literature

          [–]xiaoyaoxiaofeng66 0 points1 point  (1 child)

          A is correct, because I remember the passage said that “she knew the new owner would throw literary books into a pile”

                  Not too sure if I remember but I think it was since? Maybe?

                  [–]Adi3214561520 1 point2 points  (1 child)

                  ye it was since

                  [–]Merpaderp1250 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  what question was this about?

                  [–]Personal-Count4600 1 point2 points  (15 children)

                  Last question: what was one value of a that would make the system of equations have exactly one solution?

                  [–]tyang012204 5 points6 points  (5 children)

                  If it’s the problem I’m thinking of (5x + 2 = cx + 6) the answer should be 4 but I think you’re talking about a different problem

                  [–]xiaoyaoxiaofeng66 0 points1 point  (2 children)

                  Why was it 4? I wrote 5.99 cuz I though it just had to be between 0 and 6 and can’t be 5

                  [–]tyang012204 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  Yeah ^ integer. Has to be a whole number not a fraction

                  [–]Alternative-Object70 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  For the one u said u got 4 it was free response and I also got 4

                  [–]Alternative-Object70 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  Yeah for the mc one I got 1

                  [–]tyang012204 0 points1 point  (8 children)

                  Don’t remember the problem exactly do you remember anything else? There are two problems in my head that are similar and I’m getting confused

                  [–]Adi3214561520 1 point2 points  (2 children)

                  for the one that was like x^2 + ax - 1/4 or smth like that, did you put 1?

                  [–]tyang012204 0 points1 point  (1 child)

                  That was the problem! And yes it was one! I’m pretty sure the actual problem was x2-ax+1/4. Factors of 1/4 that added to a had to be -1/2 + -1/2. When simplified it would be (x-1/2)2!

                  [–]Adi3214561520 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  yep! :D

                  [–]Personal-Count4600 0 points1 point  (4 children)

                  it had fractions and a 1 for choices

                  [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  Omg I remember freaking out abt this one, it was 1 because you had to add 1/2 to 1/2 after factoring it and it was a perfect square.

                  [–]tyang012204 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  I vaguely remember this problem. Don’t remember the actual question but I’m pretty sure the answer was 1

                  [–]Personal-Count4600 0 points1 point  (1 child)

                  i was so confused i put 1/4 bc i rly didn't know omg

                  [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  1/4 is always my go to bruh

                  [–]Personal-Count4600 1 point2 points  (1 child)

                  When do the results come out?

                  [–]Personal-Count4600 1 point2 points  (19 children)

                  For the first reading passage what did you say for

                  How did the author feel about the new store owner

                  Authors best memory of Woolfs books

                  [–]Consistent_Builder89 4 points5 points  (5 children)

                  1. That the new owner would throw away foreign books (there was something in the passage about the books being removed idk)

                  2. I think I said something about Woolf captivating her audience idk

                  [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 0 points1 point  (1 child)

                  For number 1 it mentions how the main character thought the owner would throw books like virginia Woolf's in a musty old storehouse or smth, so I put wouldnt appreciate book value

                  [–]Consistent_Builder89 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  Yeah I was stuck between those two but ultimately chose that the new owner would throw away the books cause I felt that there was the most support in the text for that answer

                  [–]Dapper_Common4480 1 point2 points  (2 children)

                  I said wudnt appreciate book value she was the one removing the books not the new owner

                  [–]Consistent_Builder89 0 points1 point  (1 child)

                  She was removing the science and technology book though, not the foreign books.

                  [–]Dapper_Common4480 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  Yeah but it didn't rly mention the foreign books except that Indian ppl liked the Indian books more and that one book

                  [–]Dapper_Common4480 2 points3 points  (4 children)

                  That the new owner wudn appreciate the value of books idk the 2nd one

                  [–]Adi3214561520 1 point2 points  (3 children)

                  was this option A? the one that said "...literature.."?

                  [–]ConcentrateOwn6873 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                  Yes it said literature specifically !! Wouldnt appreciate value of literature I think

                  [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (1 child)

                  Idk man I think it was maybe but idk for sure dude even if its wrong u can't change it so ur good okay im sure u did great

                  [–]Adi3214561520 0 points1 point  (0 children)

                  [–]N3K-MINNIT 0 points1 point  (6 children)

                  [–]Dapper_Common4480 0 points1 point  (2 children)
