    I'm glad I could help out and I'm pretty sure you passed as long as your essays were decent.

    Here are the results of my first round of VCLA testing from June 2018:
    Reading = 248 (77%) = Passed WOOHOO
    Writing = 200 (68%) (Summary & Essays Completed)

    I took the written test over today and received a score of 77%. I completed all of the summary and essay parts. I felt I did a better job this time around on the summary and essay responses. I was wondering if I scored at least a 220 based on my results from today. Thanks!!!!!!!!!

    You're going to want at least a 222 based off of your reading score because you need a 470 overall to pass. Based off what you scored on the writing I think you should get passed the 222 mark. There is a post on this thread where I put down my scores. I believe I got a 71% on the multiple choice part and it scaled to a score of 230 the second time I took the writing. Keep us posted when you receive the score and may the odds be in your favor.

    I ended up with a 226 on my writing exam. I needed a 227. I missed it by ONE point. I am so disappointed! I am going to request a rescore in hopes there is something that can be changed to improve my score.

    I'm very surprised by a 226 scaled score based off an unofficial score of 82%. I guess you can try a rescore but I heard it most likely won't change. I would just take it again and really focus on the essays.

    I was very surprised. When I saw 82% as an unofficial score, I really thought I would get a higher score than what I received. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to get a rescore. I know it cost but if nothing changes the outcome than I will take it again. I have plenty of time to retake it again. I will focus more on my essays, since that seems to be where I need more improvement. I took the reading exam a few months ago and got an unofficial score of 80% and it ended up being a 243. I was kind of shocked by that score as I thought it would be a little higher. I know that some questions are weighed different. I really felt confident in my essays and not passing especially by one point is stressful and upsetting.

    I hear ya on that because I would be irritated missing by one point. Try the re-score and if it doesn't change just take it again. I wouldn't stress about it because you will eventually pass it!!!!

    You are correct. I am not going to stress about it. I have plenty of time to retake it again. I will study some more on my essay forms and wait until I get an update on the rescore. Fingers crossed that they revise it and add another point in and I pass.

    Hello all...I re-took the entire test because for some reason I did not do well trying to take the writing portion by itself. I took the test on June 30 so my official results should be available on Friday. Here are my unofficial scores:
    Reading-88%
    Writing-71%

    As long as I get a 241 on the reading, I will not have to re-take the test. I predict that my score is at least a 264. I will let you all know the final results once I receive my scores.

    Praise God...I passed the VCLA on my 2nd complete try...I took the writing by itself& that was not good. So Here are my scores:
    Reading-(raw score) 88% (scaled score 268)
    Writing-(raw score) 71% (scaled score 226)
    My highest Writing score was a 229 so I passed with a composite score of 497.

    Hey everyone! Any advice on passing the reading portion of the VCLA? I've never been strong with reading comprehension. I did not pass the first time I took it. I've been studying using flashcard and a study book I bought on Amazon, and I am taking the practice tests on the VCLA website. I'm taking the reading part again this Friday and I'm nervous. Thanks in advance!!
