I took my basic skills test last month when I was still feeling pretty beat from having mono. My scores were amazing on the multiple choice sections(300, 288, 300) but my writing score barely passed with a 240 (passing is 240). It doesn't matter because the scale is 100 to 300, and as long as your average is a 240 then you pass. I feel kind of dumb though, usually I do really well on writing, but I got so tired that I just turned it in without really finishing. I just couldn't keep going. Hopefully people will see the 300s and not that barely squeaking by 240 when they look at my scores.
