Fucking GRE.

28 math and 30 verbal questions means even only getting a few wrong can fuck your score. I actually thought i did well on the practice exam i took on Saturday. Got my score today (i am now even more familiar with the UMass campus than i was before and have done so much walking today).

Verbal: 630 (86th percentile)
Quantitative: 520 (42nd percentile)

The GREs are scored on a 200-800 scale like the SATs and i was rather expecting comparable scores. (My SAT scores were rather much higher than these.)

It kind of scares me that my vocabulary isn't good enough for the GRE antonym section. (I recognized every word, just didn't always know it well enough to come up with a correct antonym.)

*stabs my stupid mistakes* How can one human being mark the wrong circle for so many questions in a single section? 9 out of my 11 mistakes on the quantitative section -- which does make me feel better about my score, but continue's the day's trend of feeling like a complete idiot. It's not like i didn't spend years of my life working with Scantrons after all. But hey, practice test.
