The GAT is fucking terrible re: Written Communication.

I got 32 as my standardised SS... compared with 44 in English. I'll give you a better example, a friend of mine got 24 as his written comms GAT SS and 46 in the real thing. It's a god damn joke.

Hmmm.... I'm writing a viki article on the GAT.... Do you think I should include that?

No, keep all personal opinions (mine or yours) out of it.

I got 50 for humanities in the GAT ^_^

If I actually did those subjects, they'd be incredibly hard and anything above 40 would require a lot of work. A hell of a lot more than say 49+ in science subjects

Scaling is unfair *now off topic but meh*

i remember the GAT last year i think i did it in 2 hours or not even coz everyone got up and started to leave, and i thort that was a good idea to so i guessed heaps of the multiple choice and left. But this year i will take up the very generous 3 hours and try my hardest.

i seriously think the gat is a huge joke

this year will be the third time i've done it, day before my birthday
last year it was on the day of my birthday that kind of sucked especially because my school doesn't let us get out early if we finish early

I'd also like to express my dismay in regards to the GAT. LOL

I got a 33 for Written Communication and I got 48 for English. What a load of rubbish. It certainly raises questions about the legitimacy of the Written Communication section. I then ended up with a score of 42 for the "Mathematics, Science and Technology" section. Like what the hell? I pretty much rushed that entire section because I didn't care about it.

Hey all,

Tomorrows the GAT. Is anyone prepared? I know I'm not. I literally havent studied at all. Will I fail? I dont know if I should be taking the Gat seriously. Like i know it kinda contributes to your atar and stuff. And Im not doing any maths subject this year and i dont remember any math. does that mean i will fail the math section in the GAT? lol Im so confused. IS IT OKAY IF YOU DONT DO WELL ON THE GAT?
