    Took the VCLA today. Printout gave me 82% reading and 82% writing. Based on info on this board, can I assume that I passed?

    If you completed the essays and did alright on them then I would say you passed.

    I think I did ok on the essay part but now I am questioning myself. Was there a specific requirement for the number of words that had to be included? I know the summary part was just that-- a summary. But the essay--- ?

    I took the reading and writing exams last week. I got an 80% on reading and 60% on writing. I think I passed the reading but not sure about writing. I was able to complete my essays and I feel confident in them.

    If you wrote solid essays then I would say you passed. I think it will be close once you get your final scores. It's not the end of the world if you have to do a re-take on the writing only. You will have 4 hours to complete the whole test instead of 2 hours. I personally had to take the writing over because I didnt have enough time to complete the essays.

    Fingers crossed that I did well on my essays. If not, like you said, at least I can focus more on my Writing Exam if that is the only one I have to take. The waiting part is the hardest! Thanks so much for replying.

    Hello everyone,
    I got my results today and thanks to the Lord, I passed!
    This forum has been very helpful to me and I thought I should at least share my scores.
    Reading subtest 80% =255
    Writing subtest 62% = 213 ( I got 1 in the summary and 3 in the composition essay)
    Total score= 468 didn't pass

    Final scores :
    Reading subtest :255
    Writing subtest 80%= 232 (3 in each essay)
    Total score =487 passed

    Guys, I have been there, and I feel your pain. This test isn't easy but you'll eventually pass . God bless you all!

    What did you study for the essay? I have been trying to find so much study material for the writing portion and prompt. The essay is a persuasive essay right? I have to take it again. Third time is a charm right? I have got a score of 192 and 213... My reading score is a 251. So I need a 219, or higher.

    Ciscokid88,

    Honestly, I just used all the practice exams to study/practice. Yes, the composition essay is persuasive.

    I have another question for anyone. What format did you use for the summary and the essay? My essay I stated the opinions of both sides, my opinion and 3 reason why. I did my three body paragraphs (first, furthermore, and finally) and conclusion (in conclusion). In my conclusion I stated the counterclaim, restated my thesis, then gave my if/then statement. My summary I got 2 points I don’t know how I did it, but I was shocked when I saw it. What format do we use to write the summary and persuasive essay?

    I have another question for everyone. What format did you use for the summary and the essay? In my essay I stated the opinions of both sides, my opinion and 3 key points. I did my three body paragraphs (first, furthermore, finally). Then I followed up with my conclusion (in conclusion) where I stated the counterclaim, restated my thesis, then gave my if/then statement. Is that what they are looking for? Also, what any types on writing a summary? I got a 2 on my summary I was shocked by that.

    How did you do? I just took the writing subtest again today. I got a raw score of 77%. I am just hoping that was enough to get me over a 212. All I need is a 219.

    I passed my reading part with a 243, but I didn’t pass my writing part. I got a 191-which I am very shocked about. I felt really confident in the essays. How are we suppose to write our summary of 150-200 words? 3 paragraph form correct? For the composition it should be 5 paragraph form? I am not sure why I am having this much trouble with the writing portion. I know I need to look at the big picture and be thankful I passed my reading.
