    I took the VCLA this morning and now I'm freaking out. My unofficial score is Reading - 80% and Writing - 71%. I know that they still need to score the composition.

    I hate having to wait for my official results to get here to tell me if I passed or not.

    Do you think I passed? Thanks for your help!

    If you wrote a decent essay, you're probably fine.

    bwstump, do you mind if I ask what your raw score was for your writing section? I know it depends on how they judge your essays but I also got a 71% on my writing multiple choice and I just want to know if I have a shot of passing.

    That is SOOO great to hear :) Thanks so much!

    NOVAgradstudent I think you will be fine! Since a "passing" VCLA score is composite if you received a high score on your reading multiple choice you should do just fine!

    Now I'm really worried not to mention I'm so sick today and took VCLA. My scores say 62% reading and 88% writing.... Can I pass with this?

    Well, don't quote me... but the average of 62% and 88% is 75%, and that's on track for passing on most teacher tests. I don't recall, however, whether VCLA has an essay component for which you don't have results yet.

    Just took VCLA today...

    I took the VCLA and scored 77% on each subtest prior to the scoring of the essays. I hope that's passing. I scored a 191 on the 5041 Praxis, so not only would I be crestfallen, I'd be bewildered. :dizzy: Anyone with VCLA experience out there to give me an idea?

    Teacher2013, congratulations!

    Chaotic_Freedom, I like your username. If your performance on the essays corresponds to your performance on the multiple choice questions, I'd expect you to pass.
