Not too bad not too good. I'm at the point in Adapt that I'm taking level 6 tests getting ~ 20/35. I take the test on the 12th so I have a little bit more time to grind tests but I'm not sure if I'm in a good boat or not.

What about you?

I have been getting 27 to 30 questions right on my last 6 exams at level 6 so I am feeling decent.

Just hoping I don't questions I can struggle with on the real thing tomorrow.

Keep Grinding you got this!

You too! If you run into those questions just move on. I've found that coming back later has helped me gain the confidence/calmness to end up figuring out some of the problems I originally struggled with. You'll kill it if you're doing that well at this point.

Have you just been staying at level 6 exams or switching it up? And have you noticed that Adapt takes questions you got wrong on previous exams and puts them back in a few exams later? I don't mind it because it assures me I've learned from my mistakes when I get them right the second time around, but I also at times feel like its making the tests easier than they should be. Is that just me?

Thanks man I hope I do well too! haha

I have just been trying to stick with level 6 exams because people on AO have said to get comfortable with those exams and you should be good. But I did the free practice exams from TIA and I found those very helpful as well!

I think that just may be psychological seen you have probably spent more time on the questions you got wrong, thus you are more likely to remember those type of question when they appear.
