Since they say not many people finish the exam does anybody know how in the world they calculate the score for it.. they said getting 65 correct out of 110 will give you a good mark since only a few people finish the section.. don't get it..

There's a few postings around on this. From what I could glean:

- more than just a few people would finish Section III

- scores are standardised - some say by 5-10 off your % score/110 at around the 60-65 level.

- 10 questions are 'fillers' and not counted, the examiners are testing them for next year or something.

Aim for 70% right if you want to get about 63 or so is my guesstimate.
Good luck!

yes i finished section III

quite a few people at our test centre appeared to do so

although i could tell one person was lacking in brain capacity when they got out their calculator to do some of the questions, she obviously had a not so developed brain

i am talking about the graph question that was presented early in the paper. (was it question III).

so assume that 25% will never finish, no matter what they do.

i'd say that about 50% finished all sections. although i have no idea as to whether they just guessed or not.

i looked around to see where everyone else was at, as i was just slowly going through the paper. well slow compared to a uni exam. and i finished all sections in the required time, without having to rush.
