Answer Correlations

Hello! I've notice on the Logical Reasoning sections when I get answers wrong they're always back to back while practicing them timed. For Example: Ill get questions 1234 correct 56 incorrect 789 correct 10 11 incorrect. So basically when I get one incorrect answer it's always followed at least once by another incorrect answer. I'm curious if that's a common theme for test takers & if there's a strategy to eliminate that or if it's just a coincidence that I always at least get two incorrect answers in a row. Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!

@zah3 This is interesting. Typically this pattern is seen more commonly in Reading Comprehension and Logic Games sections, as adjacent questions normally refer to the same set of information in these sections.

Are you noticing this pattern in practice sections from lessons or in real exam sections? If you are noticing this in lesson practice sections, it may be the case that similar types of questions are grouped together. I would recommend focusing on understanding the types of questions you're missing and seeing if they're at all similar. However, if you're noticing this pattern on real exam sections, I believe it's more likely a matter of coincidence and is not typically a normal theme. Are you typically concerned that you missed the first question? Perhaps this could create a feeling of insecurity that throws your focus off when looking to the following question. In this case, I would recommend exploring test-taking strategies to help maintain confidence and focus.

I hope this helps. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help with and good luck studying!
