Please post your reading score !!

Rickey, dear, please don't make me do what I can't. There's a fair bit of flex in what 88 raw in reading can scale to. With that said, I must note that VCLA probably doesn't care whether you aced the test or you barely squeaked by, and I really don't see an 88 as barely squeaking by.

It seems like everyone has had luck on their side with this but I’m not sure I’ll be as fortunate... today I took the VCLA and I received the unofficial reading subtest score of 91% and for the writing subtest I received an unofficial score of 88%... however I literally ran out of time before the written response sections. I was only able to finish ALL multiple choice answers. What are the odds that I’ve actually passed without even seeing or answering any of the open- ended questions? ... I’m panicking because I need to have passed for licensure this month
This person passed with this....... I'm new to the site. I took the VCLA this Friday and earned a 71% on the Reading subtest and a 91% on the Writing subtest. Unfortunately, I ran out of time and was unable to complete either of the essays (summary or argument.)
Are these passing scores? Will I be able to pass the Writing subtest without the essays?
Thank you for your responses..........
You should be in good shape if you didn't do the essays with those scores.
Here is another one.....
I passed the VCLA
I am including my unofficial scores as a reference for future VCLA test takers
Reading subtest 85%=280
Writing subtest 85% =224 (without summary and argument)
Highest total score=504 (required passing score was 470)
You should be in great shape actually......
Keep everyone posted and I would say Congrats at this point.
So even without doing the sentence edits as well as essays I am in good shape!!!???!!!

Yes, I think so. Let's just say you did fail, like I did, you can retake the writing and have 4 hours to complete it instead of 2. I'm pretty sure you passed but if you didn't you will surely pass the second time. I passed after the second time and writing is not my strength.
Because of licensure I don’t have time to have to take it again so I’m freaking out hoping I pulled it off
It's possible you don't pass but you most likely passed I think. Good luck!!
I really hope you passed. I would hate for you to have to wait to start your licensure program because that’s added stress and more money down the drain...

I am finishing my Masters and Licensure program through GMU. I am at the end of the road and if I have to take this test over I am going to be way beyond the Due date to turn in my License upgrade packet. That is why I'm so stressed!

I did not pass as my total score was 454 and you need 470. My only finishing multiple choice made me fail the writing test. So now my question is do I have to take both again or can I just take writing?
I’m so sorry to hear you did not pass, but like another poster said, you do not have to retake the sections that you already passed. You only have to retake the writing section and so you can just focus on that section.
And will I have the same amount of time as I did before?

If I am reading this correctly, then you have 4 hours.
Edit: You only have to retake a section if you scored below a 235 for it. If you got at least 235 for the reading section, then you only have to retake the writing section again.

You will have 4 hours to take the writing section. You will pass the second go around of the test. Getting an 88% on the multiple choice is a solid score and you will now have double the time to take the test. Don't sweat it and push forward like LeBron James did for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

So I got a 83% on the reading my first go around and scaled a 251. I got a 64% on the writing my first go around and scaled a 192. I retook the writing and got a raw score of a 74%. After looking all around the forum I’ve noticed that at 74% is anywhere between a 222-224. What are my chances I got the 219 points I need to pass?

One of my posts I stated my 71% on the writing scaled to a 230. As long as you did decent on the essays/short responses I think you at least scored a 219. Keep everyone posted and I honestly would be surprised if you didn't pass.

Thank you for that. I think I did decent this time the first time I did horrible because I only a few minutes to write the summary and essay. This time I had over about an hour to do it. I think I got over a 219 hopefully in the 222-246 range would be great. Next Friday I get my score back and will keep you updated.
